One of our most popular events is scheduled April 30, 2015, for high school juniors and other college-bound high school students. The day begins at 9 a.m. with a welcome and scavenger hunt tour. You will sit in on a panel where current Friends University Students can answer any of your questions and parents will hear from the faculty panel. There is no school in session on this day due to students enjoying their last day before finals begin. We take advantage of this by participating in their planned activities such as “Lunch on the Lawn” and outdoor games, including inflatables. The official event ends after lunch but you may want to stick around listen to the jazz groups perform as well as play games and participate in activities with the current students. Sign up and come prepared and dressed for a fun, exciting day.
