Simply Seniors Day: Classes needed for guest students

Simply Seniors Day is less than two months away and the Office of Admission is busy planning activities. Simply Seniors Day is designed for high school seniors who have been admitted, have applied, or are considering applying to Saint Mary’s. This event is a bit more involved than the Fall Preview Days, as all attendees will spend the night on campus on Sunday, Jan. 18 and spend the day sitting in on classes and attending presentations on Monday, Jan. 19. So here is how faculty may help.

Sunday, Jan. 18: While students eat pizza and bowl with their Saint Mary's overnight hosts, their parents will attend a reception and dinner in the Toner Student Center lounge. The reception will feature as many academic departments as possible for an academic info fair. Please consider hosting a table (from 5:15-6 p.m.) and then joining admission staff for dinner at 6 p.m.

Monday, Jan. 19: A long list of available classes is needed on Monday at 9:45 and 11:10 a.m. Students will choose which class to attend from as many different disciplines as possible. If you are able to open your class to these students, please respond to Andrea Moore at your earliest convenience ( The Admission Office thanks faculty and staff for all you do for Saint Mary's.
