            SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s Admissions Office has scheduled three “Saturday Showcase” programs o open the university to prospective students and their families at morning open houses designed to showcase academic programs.

The events will be held Feb. 19, April 9 and April 30 with the opening set for 9 a.m. in the University Union.

            Reservations are requested and may be made by calling the Admissions Office at 1-800-929-4778 or going online to then clicking on the “Saturday Showcase” link.


            Students considering enrolling at SRU will learn about academic programs, residence life, financial assistance and other campus life opportunities at a resource fair held as part of the morning activity. Sessions by individual major will also be available. Families will discover Slippery Rock University’s array of award-winning, first-year support services, encompassed within the FYRST (first-year studies) Program while prospective students have time to talk with current SRU students.


“These special Saturday Showcases are time to help high school seniors trying to make their final college selection,” says Mimi Conner, interim director of first-year recruitment in SRU’s Admissions Office. “The program on Feb. 19 would be especially good for seniors to take a second look at what The Rock has to offer.”


“Having the chance to interact with our faculty is a huge benefit of the showcase program. Students have the opportunity to talk with a variety of faculty members during the academic resource fair. For students who are unsure about their major, this is an especially good time to learn about many different areas in a short period,” Conner says.


Juniors in high school should consider getting an early start at looking at colleges by visiting us during one of the April programs. “We want our students and their parents to feel comfortable with The Rock. Visiting campus a couple of times is always welcomed,” she adds.


SRU has been named one of the “Best Colleges in the Mid-west Region” by The Princeton Review and was selected as one of the “Top 50 Colleges for Girls” by CosmoGirl magazine. SRU’s enrollment stands at 7,928.
