Brewton-Parker welcomes potential students to Fall Showcase
MOUNT VERNON— On the evening of Wednesday, Oct 19th, and all day Thursday, the 20th, potential 2012 fall students will join the Brewton-Parker family for the school’s first Fall Showcase. This is much more than an admission event. It is a campus-wide initiative designed to show attendees the institution’s best. Faculty, students, office staff, and coaching staff all have an important role to play as they welcome these visitors to “Come and See” what Brewton-Parker can offer them.
The evening will begin with attendees signing in at the Student Activities Center and meeting their dorm hosts for the night. They can then attend the last night of One Body, United, an engaging event led by Christian Chapman, in Saliba chapel. After a night of getting to know students in the dorms, they will attend a class on Thursday morning. Faculty will expect a full house in some of their classes – and a chance to show off their teaching and/or subject matter at its finest.
After classes, everyone will gather for an information session followed by a forum that features current students. After lunch, the faculty will host a forum/panel discussion, and then attendees will go into break-out sessions according to their interests: academic majors, music, arts, student government, film society, Oracle, Circle K, BCM, etc. At 3:00 p.m. the day will officially end. For those interested in athletics, coaches will be offering open tryouts for each other their teams.
The Fall Showcase is a special opportunity for potentials to experience life as a Brewton-Parker student in a friendly and intellectually stimulating atmosphere. With only one major campus event this fall, the Barons will do all they can to make their guests feel welcomed and excited about beginning a new phase in their lives.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
