A total of 285 students and parents took part in the event.

Students were given an opportunity to tour the campus, while information was available from different organizations, clubs and departments.

A visitor survey was handed to each student to complete.

Students were asked what was their favorite part of the event.

“The student survey showed they loved the setup of Senior Day and the ability to visit with instructors in their programs of study,” said Kristi Shaw, executive director of enrollment management.

Students also were treated to performances from the Cowley College cheerleaders and players in the upcoming theater department production of “Mary Poppins.”

A food voucher was given to the Senior Day attendees to sample food from one of the Arkalalah food booths. There also was a student panel with prizes given away at the end of the event.

Admissions representative Julianna Smarsh, who is in her first year at Cowley College, said she was impressed by the event.

“I had a blast, and was fueled by the excitement from the students as they visited the booths and spoke to the various clubs,” Smarsh said.

“It was a very informative experience not only for the attendees, but for me, as well.”
