The Fall Open House provides an opportunity for prospective students to become familiar with the campus and meet President Bonnie Patterson and Registrar Susan Salusbury as well as faculty, staff members and students. The day is scheduled to kick off with an information forum in the Athletics Complex where representatives from all departments and some clubs, groups and teams will be on-hand.
