Arts encounter planned for prospective WWU students

William Woods University will conduct its third annual Arts Encounter: A Visual, Performing and Communications
Arts Program on Feb. 24.
 
Prospective students interested in visual,
performing and communication arts programs at WWU will have the
opportunity to team up with
faculty to receive a first-hand look at what it is like to be a
student in their field of
interest.
 
Emphasis will be on
programs in art, graphic
design, communication, theatre and ASL interpreting.
 
An invitation is also extended to high school seniors
to audition or present a portfolio for a visual, performing or communication
arts scholarship.
 
Prospective students will take a tour
of the campus, learn about WWU scholarship and financial aid
opportunities and enjoy lunch in the Mildred
Cox art Gallery. Current students will be present
to answer any questions the prospective students might have.
 
“This is a unique
admissions event,” says Dr. Aimee Sapp,
chair of the art and humanities division. “The prospective students receive
personalized attention.”

Last year, 15
prospective students attended, and Sapp anticipates an increase in attendance
this year.
