Lewis and Clark students can expect to see many bright new faces on campus during the upcoming Winter Blast festivities.

Local junior and senior high school students, district wide, have been invited to participate in a Campus Visit Day on Monday, Feb. 20, from 11a.m. to 1p.m. in the commons, on the L&C Godfrey Campus.

Vice President of Enrollment, Kent Scheffel, is hoping for a positive response from area high schools, whose campuses are closed that day, in observance of Presidents’ Day. L&C’s campus will be open and running the event alongside the Student Activities’ Winter Blast event.

L&C Enrollment Center Director, Delfina Dornes said “We have invited local high schools by mailing out postcards and flyers.” Dornes continued, “We are hoping for a nice turn out.”

There will be many fun and free activities for current and prospective students to enjoy. Some activities will include balloon artists, a caricaturist, and a photo booth. Students will be entertained by a D.J. and served refreshments as they are engaging in the various contests being offered.

The day looks to offer, not only fun, but great educational opportunities, as well. There will be staff and volunteers available to answer any potential questions. Tours are also being made available.

“High school students will have the chance to see campus life in person,” Dornes said. “Many groups, clubs, and organizations will be there to talk to prospective students about campus activities. They will get the opportunity to talk to advisors and even visit the departments that they are interested in.”

All L&C students and staff are encouraged to spread the word about this event. Students are welcome to invite any potential student to the Campus Visit Day and to sign up for a chance to win prizes.
