The College of Education at Rowan University recently held an Accepted Students Banquet for incoming freshmen looking to pursue a major in education. A busy schedule of events invited prospective students to explore all that Rowan has to offer and learn more about what being a Prof is all about. Ambassadors were eager to speak to students and families, sharing their favorite parts about the education field or answering any questions that came their way.
The day began with a catered breakfast and resource fair, giving attendees a chance to mingle and discuss the different paths available to them via an education major. Student ambassadors moved throughout the room to offer advice and information to families. The opportunity to schedule one-on-one financial aid advisory appointments was presented as well as other valuable resources to prospective students.
Next up was a presentation where distinguished faculty gave students encouragement and a taste of what it is like here at Rowan University. Students learned more about their anticipated major, and what classes and opportunities are readily available to them as Profs. They were introduced to the undergraduate programs available to study at Rowan as well as the minors and concentrations they can pick up later on in their college education. Emily Cooper and Leah Bastante, prospective students from Passaic County, expressed that “We’re ready to become teachers and excited to be Profs!”
The faculty presentation was followed by an open house in James Hall, where most education classes are held. Snacks and refreshments were provided and students received a tour of the building, in addition to learning more about student life as an education major. “I really like the atmosphere of the campus at Rowan. I’m excited to be here,” said anticipated early childhood education major Abigail Hummel of Camden County. Her friend Samantha from Gloucester County added “I’m looking forward to learning at Rowan. Go Profs!”
Students and families then departed from James Hall for campus tours and one final look at Rowan University before making putting down a deposit before May 1!
