Hampton University is hosting its 36th Annual High School Day April 4, 2014 on the University campus. This year's theme is "From Hampton, You Can Go Anywhere."
At the all-day event, prospective students will have the opportunity to speak to faculty and staff from various academic departments at the Open House and Academic/Student Activities Fair. Throughout the day the HU Student Recruitment Team (SRT), which helps plan the event, will give campus tours.
"I hope all students take full advantage of all Hampton has to offer on High School Day. This is their opportunity to enjoy the presence of all faculty, staff, current students and other prospective students," said SRT President, Michelle Jenkins. "The whole purpose of SRT is to encourage students to attend HU by highlighting all of its benefits and its rich legacy. Our goal on High School Day is to showcase our campus, and give visitors a social and academic snapshot of the University. Enjoy your day as a Hamptonian and see why so many of us call Hampton our 'Home By The Sea.'"
"High School Day is an opportunity for prospective students, parents, teachers, and guidance counselors to get an up-close and personal look at Hampton University's excellent academic programs and exceptional students services," said HU Director of Admission, Angela Nixon Boyd. "Our guests will experience what it feels like to be a HU college student for a day!"
Planned activities include a welcome program, a student services organizational fair, academic open houses, and an outdoor performance by the University Band, the Marching Force.
