Spring Frenzy Visit Day is last of academic year

ANGOLA, Ind. – Don't end the school year without checking out Trine University's Spring Frenzy Visit Day and Engineering Expo. Set for Friday, April 26, it's the last visit day of Trine's academic year and an ideal time for students and their parents to visit the campus and learn about programs.

High school and transfer students and their parents may meet with coaches and music staff along with staff members from admission, financial aid, student life, housing and career services. The day includes time to explore academic interests with professors and deans, interact with Trine students, tour campus and have lunch in Whitney Commons.

"With commencement and the end of the school year getting closer, it's an exciting time to be on campus," said Tyler Benner, visit coordinator and assistant director of admission at Trine. "This visit day is sure to capture the high energy on campus, plus it offers a look at the fascinating work being done by our engineering students.

"And, speaking of work, visitors will see that construction is all around as workers build the Jim and Joan Bock Center for Innovation and Biomedical Engineering, renovate the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts across the street, and cap Shambaugh Hall with a new roof," Benner said. The Bock Center is on schedule to be finished by this fall and the T. Furth Center will be ready by the end of the year.

Spring Frenzy Visit Day begins at 7:45 a.m. for those who wish to meet with coaches and music faculty, and at 8:10 a.m. for all others. For more information, a schedule for the day, or to register, visit www.trine.edu/visitday. Interested students may also call 800.347.4878 to reserve a spot.
