Multicultural Prospective Student Day

Multicultural Prospective Student Day is designed to provide high school seniors with a firsthand view of Appalachian and the vast resources we offer, from small class sizes and quality of academic instruction to first-rate facilities and friendly people. High school seniors come to Appalachian's campus to attend classes and campus events, including Multicultural Club Connection (MCC), mini information sessions, Fall Open House and social events.

During Multicultural Prospective Student Day, you will have the opportunity to gauge what it is like to be a student at Appalachian. Prospective students will participate in vital group sessions such as: Financial Aid and Scholarships, Housing and Residence Life, Focus on Academics, and Co-curricular Involvement Opportunities. These group sessions will be facilitated by Appalachian's finest faculty, staff and students.

It is our hope that you will apply to attend Multicultural Prospective Student Day. If you are looking for a university who values scholastic achievement, diversity and individual enhancement, then Appalachian is the college for you. We are confident that the information and programs will be extremely beneficial and you will see what a valuable place Appalachian can be for you.
