Friday at the Falls

Campus preview, during the spring, is a highly known event for TFC because of prospective students visiting the campus. This past Thursday and Friday, however, TFC held Friday at the Falls, where office of Admissions organized another time when students can tour the school.  

Prospective students toured the campus, trying to figure out if this school is where they felt called to pursue their extended and undergrad studies. The dorms opened their doors for to prospective students, as well as to parents in order to check out the campus atmosphere. During the event, though, there were also plenty of activities to entertain the visitors. They took part in marshmallow roasting, campus tours, special chapels, and sitting-in on classes. There was even financial aid seminars for parents.

One reason for Friday at the Falls is because most high school students make their undergraduate school decision by December or early January. Another reason, however, is that TFC is hoping Friday at the Falls will give the school a competing chance at fixing its low enrollment rate.  Although a high success rate is needed, big activities won’t necessarily get the job done.  Enrolled students need to spend time with the prospective students in the dorm and show them what campus life is really like.
