Professors share their passion to teach and what each academic department has to offer in a new video that debuts at 11 a.m. Saturday, October 24, on the college’s YouTube channel. The premiere will be followed by a Facebook live question-and-answer session.
Open House October culminates with a live parents and guardian night at 7 p.m. Thursday, October 29. The “Parents Night In” event takes place online using the Zoom videoconference tool, and features academic department deans, advising and transfer staff, as well as the Bucks Admissions team, who will provide information and answer questions.
“If you have a high school senior at home, your child might be thinking about what's next,” said Marlene Barlow, director of admissions. “Often a difficult decision, this year has its own set of challenges, so we’re inviting parents to Zoom in to learn more about Bucks, where you don’t have to go far to get far.”
