Spring open house is one for the history books. On April 9, hundreds of parents and prospective students traveled to the University to learn about the various academic programs as well as meet faculty, administrators and current students and tour the campus.

“This year’s attendance for open house was a great turnout for the University,” said Chris Withers, director of Admissions.  “Our guests traveled from as far as South Carolina, Washington, DC, New York, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, New York and across the state of North Carolina to join us. I personally want to thank everyone involved for making the open house so successful.”

The open house began with the Superior Sound Marching Band having everyone in the jam packed Emery Gymnasium get on the feet and move to the Falcon Pride beat. They also moved to the cheers of the Blue Chips cheerleaders. Following all of the excitement, parents and prospective students attended workshops and had the opportunity to visit each school in their respective area.

The day of information and festivities ended with the Blue and White scrimmage game at George Williams Athletic Complex.
