IU Northwest invites high school students, parents to Fall Preview Night on Oct. 30

‘College Prep 101’ event on Nov. 16 offers tips on college admissions, financial aid

Selecting a college or university and applying for admission can be one of the most challenging and important events in a student’s life. Indiana University Northwest offers several upcoming programs designed to assist students as they prepare to undertake this vital process.

On Monday, Oct. 30, high school students and their parents are invited to preview IU Northwest facilities and program offerings during Fall Preview Night. This campus-visit event will include campus tours, a chance to meet with faculty and staff, and an informative presentation outlining the advantages and opportunities that IU Northwest can offer incoming college students. No matter where students may be considering attending school, we encourage them to stop by and see if IU Northwest can help them find the classes, the career and the future they are looking for.

Campus tours for Fall Preview Night run from 5:30 p.m. until 6 p.m. Faculty sessions run from 6 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The formal presentation will run from 6:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. Fall Preview Night will be held in the IU Northwest Savannah Center, 3400 Broadway in Gary, Ind. No RSVP is necessary for this event.

At Fall Preview Night, students should also inquire about the latest scholarship offering at Indiana University Northwest, the IU Northwest Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship, which pays $1,000 each academic year toward tuition for qualifying students. This newest addition to IU Northwest’s diverse array of academic scholarships will be available to full-time students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and either a combined math and verbal SAT score of 1000 or a combined math and verbal ACT score of 23. The Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship is intended to assist academically qualified students who are not eligible for other IU Northwest scholarships, but whose work clearly demonstrates the potential for collegiate success.

Recipients of the Chancellor’s Merit Scholarship must be IU Northwest students who are enrolled for at least 12 credit hours. The scholarship, which is applied in $500 increments toward the fall and spring semesters, is renewable for up to three additional academic years for students who maintain a 3.0 GPA. The first awards for IU Northwest’s latest scholarship will be made available to students entering IU Northwest for the fall 2007 semester

On Nov. 9, there will be an open house at 5 p.m. at the Academic Learning Center at 9900 Connecticut St. in Merrillville, where IU Northwest offers a variety of courses. Traditional and non-traditional students are invited to visit this conveniently located facility and learn more about our off-campus program offerings.

On Nov. 16, students and parents are invited to attend “College Prep 101,” an informative workshop designed to provide answers to common questions about college searches and admissions, financial aid and other matters. This program is open to all area college-bound students, whether or not they are considering attending IU Northwest.

We encourage students and their parents to take part in this event and pick up some valuable tips on how to navigate any university’s comprehensive admissions process. IU Northwest is pleased to provide this informational program for the benefit of college-bound students and their families in Northwest Indiana.

“College Prep 101” will be held from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the IU Northwest Savannah Center Auditorium, located at 3400 Broadway in Gary, Ind. To RSVP for “College Prep 101,” call (219) 980-6991 or (888) 968-7486 by Nov. 14.
