First Marshall Preview Day set for Monday, Oct. 14

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University will conduct the first of four Preview Days planned during the current academic year Monday, Oct. 14.

Students who already have been admitted as freshmen next fall are invited to attend Preview Day.

“They literally get a preview on what it’s like to be a Marshall student,” said Beth Wolfe, Marshall’s director of recruitment. “And, they will get in-depth information on what they need to do next to get enrolled for the fall.”

Wolfe said the students will actually sit in on a class to find out what that is going to be like.

Parents are invited to attend, as well, because “they are an important part of this process,” Wolfe said. A session is planned for the parents while the students are sitting in on the class. About 30-35 students are expected to attend the first Preview Day, but the numbers are expected to rise at later Preview Days, Wolfe said.

“It’s actually a nice way to start easing into it,” she said. “We are excited about kicking things off Monday.”

Future Preview Days are scheduled Dec. 2, Jan. 27 and March 31.

The schedule for Monday’s Preview Day is:
