Final Campus Discovery Day for 2012-12 to be Held Saturday


Williamsburg, Ky. — University of the Cumberlands (UC) will hold its final Campus Discovery Day of the 2011-2012 academic year Saturday, February 25th.

Each year, UC holds three Campus Discovery Days to introduce prospective students and their parents to many aspects of college life, including academics, faculty, athletics, campus activities, financial aid and the admissions process.

“On a typical Saturday, students do not often have the chance to meet with faculty and students, nor do they have the opportunity to visit classes and experience first-hand what the university has to offer,” said Erica Harris, Director of Admissions. “Because hectic work and school schedules prevent many families from visiting during the week, we want to expose them to as much as possible on these designated Saturdays,” Harris said.

For prospective students, Campus Discovery Day consists of a question-and-answer session with currently enrolled students, a “mock” class with a professor, a session about college academics, and the opportunity to meet individually with professors in a departmental browsing session. There will also be tables set up for Athletics, Academic Affairs, Financial Planning, Student Services, Student Activities, Baptist Campus Ministries, and ROTC. The day will end with lunch and a tour of campus.

Registration will be from 9:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. with Campus Discovery Day activities starting immediately after registration. For reservations or more information, call the Admissions Office at (606) 539-4241 or 1-800-343-1609. You may also reserve your spot online at
