Adrian College Welcomes 1,200 Visitors To Campus for Annual Sneak Peek Day
Event offers incoming students a first-hand look at the College prior to Welcome Week
ADRIAN, Mich. (July 14, 2017) – Adrian College hosted its annual Sneak Peek Day, welcoming over 1,200 attendees to campus. As has been recent tradition, the event offers each incoming freshman a glimpse of campus accommodations, student life and an opportunity to meet their roommate and plan for the fall semester. Students and their families perused the Adrian College Bookstore, toured the renovation projects at Davis Hall & Feeman Hall, dined at Ritchie Marketplace and toured around the Mall meeting fellow freshmen.
Jesse Milan, an incoming freshman from Chicago, Illinois, attended Sneak Peek Day despite already being quite familiar with Adrian College. “I’ve been to campus several times now,” she said. “But each time I discover something new about the campus and I chose Adrian because it’s always felt like home to me. Even though I knew a lot about the campus already, I met a lot of new people today. I’ve been able to say ‘I’ll see you in the fall!’ It’s been a lot of fun.”
Staff and faculty were available during this event to answer questions, discuss the upcoming fall semester and provide a first-hand tour to incoming students, family and friends. Sneak Peek Day also provided full access to the campus amenities and offered drawings with prizes such as mini-fridges and an iPad. Many students per-registered for their fall classes in anticipation of Welcome Week activities coming in August.
“I like that there are so many faculty and staff at Sneak Peek Day willing to help you, but you are also free to explore the campus and check out every aspect of the upcoming experience,” said incoming freshman Elizabeth Herman of Warminster, Pennsylvania.
“Since it is such a small college, you feel so close to all of these people. But, I am constantly stunned by the large number of opportunities there are to be involved in. It’s an amazing atmosphere and I am so excited for this to be my home.”
Sneak Peek Day is an event that aims to cater to increasingly large freshmen classes each year. This fall, Adrian College anticipates a class of over 600 new students.
