Students across the world are currently in preparation for their freshman year at college. With acceptance letters in the mail, prospective Fighting Knights are eager to join the Lynn community a few months early.
Admitted Student Experience (ASE) is a two-day, one-night experience exclusively for accepted students of the Lynn University class of 2021. This program is designed to allow prospective students the chance to understand what the Lynn community is all about.
The overnight experience is incredibly exciting for both future and current Fighting Knights as it allows both parties the opportunity to meet and get acquainted with each other prior to next Fall.
“Over the last six years that we have put on this program, 80 percent of students that attended ended up enrolling at Lynn,” said Lisa Mutnick, administrative assistant of the Office of Admissions.
This Thursday, March 23 at 6 p.m. on the Quad, the Student Admission Ambassadors and Housing and Residence Life will be hosting a carnival. All who are interested in learning more about hosting students for this year’s ASE in April are encouraged to attend.
The Office of Admissions is currently looking for current students to register to become a host for the ASE event.
“As a student host, we are asking you to let a prospective student stay overnight in the residence halls with you, attend a few events and hang out with your student while on campus,” Mutnick said. “Most importantly, we are asking that you serve as a positive role model to these students and represent Lynn University proudly, you will play a huge role in whether or not these students decide to attend Lynn in the Fall,” she added.
Student Admission Ambassadors are the face of Lynn for prospective students. With daily tours, lunches with students, Preview Lynn days and ASE, Ambassadors are excited for the carnival to recruit more people to get involved with Admissions.
“I love working in Admissions so much is because I am giving another student and family a chance at an opportunity just like I was given at Lynn by the admissions counselors,” said Olivia Passafaro, junior. “This job is so rewarding because by just giving someone a tour every day, I am able to help someone figure out their next step of their life.”
Some students, like Alex Gharabegian, freshman, knew right after last year’s ASE that he would be enrolling at Lynn. Gharabegian now serves as an Admissions Ambassador in order to allow more students to have the same experience he had.
“ASE had a huge impact on me because no other school I felt connected with, you can read statistics online but coming here allowed me to meet so many people from so many places in less then one day,” Gharabegian said.
The Office of Admissions is encouraging all students, not just ambassadors to sign up to host prospective students. This once in a lifetime opportunity will allow you to have a lasting impact on a prospective student.
