UC Blue Ash to Add More Open House Dates to Meet Demand

on

Due to increasing demand, the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College is expanding its open house events to add new weekend options.

The college has traditionally held one open house each semester for prospective students and their families, and it’s usually on a weeknight. After seeing dramatic growth in attendance at the events in recent years – there were a record 250 prospective students and more than 700 people total at the 2015 fall open house – it was time to adjust.

“The continued increase in interest in our college has made it very clear that we need to expand our open house events to accommodate the demand and really enhance the experience for everyone who attends,” says Brad Tate, director of admissions at UC Blue Ash.

This fall there will be a new weekend open house event on Saturday, September 17 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and the traditional weeknight event will be held on Tuesday, October 18 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Two more open houses will also be held in the spring.

College representatives are also available with information about academic support labs, financial aid, placement testing, student life, study abroad, and other programs and services.

The Saturday, September 17 open house will feature a structured format that requires prospective students to register in advance and schedule a specific time to attend. The Tuesday, October 18 open house will be the more traditional ‘college fair’ format, but advanced registration is still required for anyone who plans to attend.
