Prospective college students have a chance to experience Oklahoma Baptist University for themselves this spring.
OBU is hosting Spring Preview Day on Saturday, April 5. The event begins with check-in and registration at 1:30 p.m. in OBU's Raley Chapel.
Spring Preview Day will feature general sessions which allow participants to gain broad knowledge of the university. Breakout sessions will offer deeper details in specific areas.
"Students and parents alike will want to take advantage of personally meeting faculty and administrators," said Bruce Perkins, OBU director of admissions.
After a 2 p.m. opening session, participants can attend an academic fair, take a campus tour and sit in on breakout sessions that will cover various topics of interests, including financial aid. The event will conclude with a dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
One of the highlights of Spring Preview Day will be the return of "Bisonification," an interactive campus tour which was featured initially during OBU's Winter Preview Day.
"Spring Preview Day is not just for high school seniors, but is an excellent opportunity for sophomores and juniors in high school to begin their college search," said Perkins. "We anticipate a good gathering of prospective students and their families on Bison Hill."
