PLAINVIEW – High school juniors and seniors are coming to campus Nov. 10-11 at Wayland Baptist University for Gold Rush. The annual event introduces prospective students to Wayland and student life on campus.
Wayland’s Executive Director of Admissions and Recruiting Chad Cain said Gold Rush provides students with an opportunity to get a head start on planning for their first year of college.
“Students will have a chance to ask questions about registration and financial aid, as well as meet with professors and find out more about their intended major,” Cain said. “There are information sessions, as well as fun activities where students can learn all about life as a Pioneer.”
Prospective students will also have the opportunity to apply for scholarships, tryout for Wayland’s athletic teams and enjoy Pioneer football and soccer games. Campus tours will also be available, as will fun and games in the Laney Student Activities Center and Pete’s Place student lounge.
Saturday’s activities feature an academic fair where prospective students can visit with professor from the various academic schools and ask questions about specific majors and course curriculum. There is also a session where members of Wayland’s administration and staff explain what it means to be a Pioneer.
