A flurry of activity best describes the office of enrollment services this past year as prospective high school students continue to visit USU Eastern’s campus.
At the end of the first week in April, 563 students attended Eagle Experiences with 40 more students registered for the final experience this weekend. In the same time period a year ago, 295 students visited campus during Eagle Experiences.
Campus visits from high schools throughout Utah has skyrocketed with 1,207 touring campus in 2014-15.
According to Jessica Prettyman, enrollment services assistant, an additional 118 campus tours were given by the ambassadors to students, families and friends of prospective students, netting almost 3,000 in prospective student numbers. With these numbers, it is the hope of the enrollment team that between 1,200 and 1,400 students will choose USU Eastern to attend next fall.
According to the Director of Enrollment Services Kristian Olsen, “When prospective students come on our campus, they fall in love with the place. They fall in love with the people who work here and the students who attend USU Eastern.
“The one constant remark we hear from students visiting our campus is how warm and inviting everyone is here. They feel like people really care for them and their educational goals, which is true.
“At USU Eastern we care as much about our students, success as they do. That’s what makes this campus special. And students feel that passion. Which is why we have worked hard to get 3,000 plus students to come visit the campus this year.”
