William Woods to host Experiential Visit Day for prospective students of popular Education, Exercise Science degree programs

William Woods University (WWU) is getting ready to host dozens of prospective students and family members, including many from Callaway and Cole Counties, for an Experiential Visit Day involving two of the university’s most popular degree programs this week.

On Thursday, September 19, high school students with a career interest in Education or Exercise Science will have the opportunity to spend the morning on the WWU campus, exploring the benefits of attending William Woods as a major in either field of study. Prospective students will together attend a briefing on admissions and financial aid beginning at 8:30 a.m., followed by a guided campus tour, before breaking up into separate groups depending on interest.

At 10 a.m., students interested in the School of Education will attend a session on the Education program at WWU in the university’s Academic Building (room 301), followed by an informational panel from 11 a.m. to noon at Aldridge Recreation Center featuring a member of the William Woods Education faculty, two current WWU Education students and a teacher and principal from the Fulton and North Callaway public schools, respectively.   

Also at 10 a.m., in the WWU Center for Human Performance building, prospective Exercise Science students will receive insight into how the many fields of the major fit into a “game day,” with a focus on nutrition, injury prevention and treatment, training for participation and planning athletic events. In between, the students will receive mini-lectures on content from the William Woods’ Sport Management, Human Performance and Sport Medicine programs, providing them with a glimpse into what classes in those fields at WWU would be like.
