Three Students Admitted On the Spot to the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences During Spring Preview

by Amin Maghsoodi, Director of Admissions

On Saturday, April 2nd, the Office of Admissions hosted Spring Preview 2016. With over 60 people in attendance it was a great success! This bi-annual open house is designed for prospective students, applicants and newly admitted students to come to campus to learn more about their program of interest, meet with faculty Admissions and Financial Aid and get a campus tour.

Students participated in program specific breakout sessions where faculty lead discussions about their program for the prospective students. Students also had a chance to sit in on an Admissions and Financial Aid session. Many prospective students took advantage of sitting with faculty during the lunch session to speak to them one-on-one about their specialty here at CDU.

Three students were admitted on the spot to the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences during the Instant Admit session with the Admissions team. All three students were highly qualified and are looking forward to starting in the fall 2016 semester. Here are some snapshots of the day.

Overall it was a successful event! Set your calendars now for Fall Preview on Saturday, October 1st!
