Prospective Students Offered Many Options to Visit Asbury

September 19, 2018

Asbury University makes it easy for prospective students to get a glimpse into life on campus with a plethora of visit options from Preview Events to Sibling Invasion and major-specific visit days. 

Those interested in the Adventure Leadership program, among other prospective students, recently visited campus and experienced Adventure Preview, which gave high school students a glimpse into life on campus as well as an adventure in the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest. For 24 hours, students hiked, canoed, cooked over a fire and slept in hammocks.

Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Coordinator for Campus Visits and Events Mallary Wiley notes that Preview Events can be crucial in a prospective student’s decision to attend Asbury.

“At Preview Events, students are able to stay overnight in the residence halls, enjoy milkshakes at the Hiccup (on-campus coffee shop) with their overnight host, attend classes, tour campus, worship in Chapel, meet professors, eat in the Cafeteria and even meet with coaches upon request,” Wiley said. “Preview Events are high energy because we usually have a good-sized group on campus.”

During Preview Events, an Academic Fair is held as a sort of one-stop shop for prospective students and their families to get questions answered. Here, they are able to speak with representatives from several campus offices including the Registrar, Center for Academic Excellence, Global Engagement Office, Center for Career and Calling, Asbury Academy and Intercultural Affairs.

“Our goal for our Preview guests is that they leave campus knowing who Asbury is and with a good idea of what life as a student at Asbury would look like,” Wiley said. “Regardless of whether or not a student chooses Asbury as their home, we hope they leave here feeling supported and encouraged about how the Lord is moving on our campus.”

In November, high school students can attend Fall Preview Events Nov. 8-9 and Nov. 29-30. While in the spring semester, Preview Events are offered March 7-8 and March 28-29.

Wiley recommends that students who aren’t able to attend a Preview Event should visit campus at another time during the year.

“We would love to have you join us for a Preview Event this year, but if the dates do not work for you, know that we can schedule a personalized visit on any weekday or Saturday,” Wiley said. “A campus visit is the No. 1 way to know if a college feels like home.”

Later this year, Asbury will host an Equine Visit Event, Music Department Visit Event, Media Communication Visit Event, Homeschool Visit Day, STEM Visit Event, Salvation Army Visit Event and Scholarship Competitions. Learn more about these events by visiting
