Please be prepared to present 2 academic sessions that will run in 40-minute intervals with a 10-minute break in between.

Presentation PowerPoint or Slideshow
If you would like Event Services to set up your PowerPoint presentation in advance of your arrival, please send your presentation to Kelly Lussier or Andrew Cevasco by the Tuesday before the open house.
Information Fair (12:30-2:30)
Following the academic sessions, we will have an information fair setup in the tent on Diane Geppi-Aikens field. Please feel free to bring any materials or information along that you would like to provide to prospective students. We will provide a 1-page document with an outline of the individual academic programs for your table.
We welcome and encourage you to recruit student volunteers to attend the fair and lunch with you. We will include additional name tags in your folder for any that will join.
We will provide boxed lunches in the tent on Diane Geppi-Aikens field from 12:15-2:30. Lunch will also be available for faculty, staff, and student volunteers in Sellinger VIP from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., if you would like to come before your session presentation to grab a sandwich.
Disability Etiquette Tips
At some of our events, it is possible that we will host students or parents with a physical or cognitive disability. Disability Support Services shared with us the following website to provide etiquette tips when working with guests who have a disability.
