Hi, just got back a bit ago from HWS Open House for Accepted Students. It rained alot but that did not dampen anyone's spirits. The campus was so well kept and the adcoms were very friendly. My son and I got there around 9:30 and signed in. Soon we were led to the audit. where the president and provost spoke...very nice and warm. It was definately a full house. The group was then split into groups and very easily led out on our way to the gym where tables were set up along the perimeter of it to include all disciplines and interests of incoming students. My son and I found all of the professors very open and friendly. We were then split off from our children and parents were taken to comstock to have a luncheon and students were taken to Scandling where they ate lunch with other students. My son enjoyed the lunch but said he just wasn't used to so many people trying to get their lunch at one time. We spoke of this later and agreed this is very typical. Our morning ended around 12:45 when we were rejoined by our students and if we chose were taken on tours. We had done this before so we left at that time. It was a great day and son really enjoyed his time there. The staff went out of their way to make our short stay a happy one. We were glad we went.
VA - never got a chance to go to Scandling...sorry
Cheers to all...
