High School Seniors to Preview University of Idaho Campus

Tuesday, March 27 2012

MOSCOW, Idaho – High school seniors admitted to the University of Idaho will preview the Moscow campus during two upcoming Vandal Fridays.

The events will be held on March 30 and April 13.

During the events, students may tour the university campus; meet with professors and advisers; register for classes before other students; purchase Vandal gear; and learn about housing options, financial aid services, and academic and personal support staff.

The events include opportunities to "test drive" on-campus living options with one- or two-night stays in residence halls, fraternity, sorority or the Steel House co-op.

“Vandal Friday is the first chance students have to receive a total experience of campus life,” said Steve Neiheisel, assistant vice president for enrollment management.

Representatives from many student organizations will be at the Academic and Activities Information Fair to provide information about numerous leadership, educational and social opportunities available.

Students may also receive their Vandal ID cards, sign up for housing and choose meal plans. Freshmen are required to live on campus during their first year of school.

Special information sessions also are available for parents, and will touch on a variety of topics, including financing a student's education.

There is a $50 student participation fee to attend Vandal Friday.

Registration information and full details are available at www.uidaho.edu/vandalfriday. Reservations are required one week before the events and students must be admitted to the University of Idaho to attend.
