KALAMAZOO--High school seniors are invited to check out one of the nation's top-100 public universities during three open houses at Western Michigan University this fall.

Students are asked to pre-register online for the free Friday events Oct. 21, Nov. 11 and Dec. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Bernhard Center on WMU's main campus in Kalamazoo.

Seniors who have yet to apply to the University can receive an admission decision at the event by signing up for on-site admission when registering and bringing the requested paperwork to the open house. Admission decisions will be provided during individual appointments that will be set up with an admissions counselor.

Each open house begins with check-in at 8:30 a.m. A welcome by WMU President John M. Dunn and remarks by other officials will follow from 9:30 to 10 a.m. The University Showcase of services, organizations and activities available to WMU students will be open from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Guided tours and informational presentations will take place at various times during the day.

Special afternoon tours of the University's Lee Honors College and seven academic colleges also will be held from 2 to 4 p.m.

Attendees will have the flexibility to go to presentations and take tours that will be most beneficial to them. Parking is free, and a parking pass will be provided at check-in or if time allows, sent in the mail.
