Fall is Finally Here!! What's New with Grad Studies/GSA!!

Greetings All!!

 I hope you are all off to a great start of the semester!!! I can’t believe that October 1st will soon be here. We have been very busy in the Office of Graduate Studies. Recruiting season is upon us. Many of us are out and about traveling to different colleges and meeting prospective students. What an exciting time in admissions!!!

We are busy at home too, with our next Graduate Open House on October 13 in Sykes! If you are a prospective student, this is a wonderful night to come and have your questions answered by our recruiters. Programs Coordinators will be present from each of our 70+ programs. You will also have the opportunity to speak with representatives from Financial Aid as well as learn more about Graduate Assistantship opportunities! This is also a great chance to get your application fee waivers! This code will save you the $50 application fee.  Register for our October 13th event here: Here!

This is also a beautiful time of year to tour our campus. It is one of my duties as a Graduate Assistant to take prospective students on a tour of our campus. This is an excellent way to see each of the buildings that you will need to be familiar with as a graduate student at West Chester. Tours take place every day at 11AM and 2PM.
