D'Youville sets open house, visit schedule

 Prospective students looking for information about D’Youville College may be interested in a number of upcoming events at the campus, located at 320 Porter Ave.
 Weekend visits will begin on Oct. 29 and continue once a month through May 5, with no visit in January.
 “Weekend visits are basically a recruiting event,” said Megan Harmon, assistant director of admissions. “We’re looking for prospective students. Weekend visits are a smaller-scale version of our open house.”
 Weekend visits include information sessions about individual programs offered at the college, as well as campus tours led by students.
 In addition to the weekend visits, open houses are also beginning at the college, with the first on Oct. 22.
 While weekend visits last under two hours, open houses run from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
 The open houses begin with an introduction by the director of admissions, including a discussion of the history of the college and what the college’s mission is. Attendees are then split into groups and participate in individual sessions, where faculties from different departments discuss more in-depth information.
 Campus tours and financial aid seminars are also available during open houses.
