Pioneer Preview set for Friday, Oct. 20

PLAINVIEW — High school students get a real-life view of Wayland Baptist University when Pioneer Preview takes place on the Plainview campus Friday, Oct. 20.

“Pioneer Preview is the best way to learn about Wayland,” said Shaney Brewer, Director of Undergraduate Admission. “With an up-close view of academics, spiritual life, and student activities, participants are able to see what the life of a Pioneer is really like.”

The event includes Pioneer Showcase, where Wayland displays all academic options and opportunities, as well as financial aid and Honors Program sessions, and campus tours.

“Pioneer Preview will be full of fun, food, and great information,” Brewer said. “We can’t wait to spend the day with future students and their families.”

The festivities begin with check-in at 9:30 a.m. in Laney Student Activities Center. Following a welcome message at 10 a.m., participants take part in a fun, campuswide scavenger hunt from 10:30 a.m. to noon. While lunch will be served in Laney Center, there will be a panel discussion with current students, staff, and faculty members.

Afternoon activities begin at 12:55 p.m. with the Pioneer Showcase in the Multipurpose Room between the Moody Science Building and Mabee Learning Resources Center basements. Financial Aid is the topic at 1:30 p.m. in Harral Auditorium, and dorm tours follow at 2 p.m. At 2:30 p.m., students can attend an Honors Session or go by the University Store in McClung University Center.
