Louisiana College to launch virtual preview day
by Norm Miller
PINEVILLE, La. (LCNews)—Louisiana College is ready for its Preview Day on April 17. But the commute has changed from a drive to the Pineville campus to a reach for the phone.
Virtual Preview Day begins at noon with technology effortlessly transporting interested students and parents to the information needed for exploring the award-winning campus, hearing from professors and students, and gathering financial aid information.
“Our virtual Preview Day is one among many adjustments we have made in response to the pandemic,” said Louisiana College President Dr. Rick Brewer. “I am grateful for the technology that will enable me to engage with new people and talk about what makes us unique among peer institutions.”
Visitors may engage in a live Q and A session via web chat, as well as experience a virtual tour of the campus, gain details about classes and degree majors from professors, and view videos of current students sharing why they chose Louisiana College for their undergraduate degree.
“Our students consistently say how much they value personal attention from their professors and the sense of a close-knit family,” Brewer said. “Parents also appreciate our commitment to traditional family values and Vision of Preparing Graduates and Transforming Lives.”
Interested persons may register for Preview Day at www.lacollege.edu/previewday. Louisiana College social media will push out two links for event access. One link will be for use on mobile devices, and the other for traditional computers; however, the links will not go live until noon on Friday, April 17. Registration is not required to participate.
“Our circumstances obviously have changed in recent days,” Brewer said. “But our commitment to developing the maturity of intellect and of character is emboldened by the challenges we face from the Coronavirus and a society that needs students who can affect positive change in our culture and the marketplaces of the world.”
