Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) joins all of Indiana’s 31 private, nonprofit colleges and universities across the state by opening its doors to students, parents and others involved in the college selection process during Indiana Private College Week, July 18-22, 2016.

Visitors are encouraged to make the most of this opportunity by customizing the visit to fit specific goals and interests. Students and families will experience the campus first-hand through tours, connect with current students and learn about academic programs and student life.

“The week is designed to give students a glimpse of what it's like to be a student at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College,” said Brennan Randolph, vice president for enrollment management.

“Becoming a student here is doable thanks to our generous financial aid packages and our Wabash Valley Scholarships. Families will discover a surprisingly affordable education.”

The Princeton Review cites campus visits as the “most important part of your research” when determining which institution to attend.  Students are better prepared to decide what university is right for them after they know how the campus feels and how they fit into the picture.

“By visiting a campus, students and families discover Indiana private colleges are within reach, financially and otherwise,” said Richard Ludwick, president and CEO of the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). “ICI colleges and universities give millions of scholarship dollars to students all four years, making top-flight higher education a dream come true for tens of thousands. We want this week to be a gateway to discovering that dream realized.”  

Visitors between the ages of 16 and 20 touring ICI campuses during Private College Week, July 18-22, will have the chance to enter a drawing for a Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad mini tablet.  Entry forms and rules will be available at each campus.
