SWOSU Hosting Counselors on September 23


Southwestern Oklahoma State University will host 50 western Oklahoma high school counselors this Friday, September 23, on the Weatherford campus.

The SWOSU Admissions and Recruitment Office sponsors the Counselors’ Day workshop each year to allow counselors to gather and not only learn more about the great things happening at SWOSU  but also to see the campus.

Admissions and Recruitment Assistant Director Shamus Moore said the day consists of three panels of speakers, a luncheon and scholarship give-away, and campus tours. The first session of speakers includes those dealing with admission and student services. Following in session two will be SWOSU programs including parks and recreation management, nursing, athletic training, Bulldog athletics and the Army National Guard GOLD program. The final session will consist of financial aid speakers.

During lunch, four $500 scholarships will be given away to be used by a graduating senior who plans to attend SWOSU in the fall of 2012. After lunch, campus tours are available to those interested.

The event takes place in the Memorial Student Center Ballroom.
