Fall on the IUP Campus

The Cook Honors College (CHC) at Indiana University of Pennsylvania announces its Fall 2011 overnight Open Houses for prospective high school students and their families. Open Houses will be held October 7-8 and November 11-12 in Whitmyre Hall, the Cook Honors College living-learning community.

Those attending the overnight Open Houses will have an opportunity to participate in an Honors Core class, meet with representatives from their major department, tour the Honors College and IUP campus, and meet current Honors students, faculty, and staff.

“The Open Houses at the Cook Honors College differ in that there is very little ‘editing’ to what happens here. We don’t just place a few selected students in front of our visitors. Instead, we offer both high school students and their family members an opportunity to truly get to know the real, lived experience of the CHC, to meet all of our students and hear their stories, and to ask their questions and get candid, unscripted responses. There is something special about the community of the Honors College, and we want to share that openly,” states Heather Andring, assistant director of the Cook Honors College at IUP who works with the admissions process.
