Prospective students can learn about ASU at More to Explore event

Posted: February 08, 2013

Deciding where to attend college can be a stressful process. Arizona State University is easing this burden by allowing prospective students to get a first-hand glimspe of the opporutntiies that await them.

The university is hosting a special More to Explore session from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Feb. 18, at all four of ASU’s campuses. The free conference-style event is designed to allow seniors to discover why ASU is the perfect match for them. Students will have the chance to speak with admissions representatives, current students and faculty advisors about academic programs, housing, scholarships and more. Campus tours will also be available to give students an up-close view of the university classrooms, state-of-the-art labs and residential halls. Close to 2,000 guests are already registered to attend More to Explore.

ASU is also teaming up with MARV, the interactive research vehicle, on a tour of Valley schools to raise awareness about college visits being essential in the college decision process. Students have the opportunity to use an interactive screen on the rear of the RV to answer questions about what they are looking for in a potential college.

During the second semester of senior year, it is important for students to begin finalizing this critical decision. The earlier they apply and are accepted, the sooner they may begin to confirm housing and dining preferences, and pay the enrollment deposit. ASU orientations begin in March for first-time freshmen. 

Register to attend More to Explore on Feb. 18 and take the first step in selecting ASU for your academic future.
