Guide to a College Open House: 10 Questions to Ask

November 7, 2018 Student Life

Vaughn College Open House: Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m.

Finding the right college begins with asking the right questions. Gearing up for college can be an exciting time and attending an open house is a great way to start the process. There’s no doubt you have a million questions to ask (well maybe not that many) and you might even be feeling a bit nervous about everything. The good news is you’re not alone and if you’re like many students out there, your parents will be by your side until decision day.

Let’s face it. Attending college is a two-way street for most students and parents. Students see it as a pathway to independence and leaving the so-called “nest,” while parents see it as a struggling time of “letting go” while still clinging to being the decision-makers. Attending a college open house helps to level the playing field, as students get to ask their questions and have an opportunity to get a feel for the campus while parents can be parents and inquire about parental concerns.

We invite you to register for one of our upcoming Vaughn College Open House events scheduled Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m. The Open House is always a fun and informative day where you’ll not only have your questions answered, but you may even be enlightened on things you never knew about Vaughn while touring the labs and facilities.
