Connors State Welcomes More Than 550 to Campus for Senior Day

Mar092017

Choosing the right college after high school can be an overwhelming experience and to help students understand more about life on a college campus, Connors State held Senior Day on Tuesday, February 28. More than 550 students, faculty and staff members from high schools across Oklahoma and surrounding states attended the event, which was held in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the Warner campus. Students met with administrative staff as they gave a brief overview of what to expect during their college experience, and gained valuable information about who to speak with when applying for scholarships.

“We want to provide students with the opportunity to experience college life by visiting with our current students, instructors and staff,” said Logan Knapper, Director of Recruitment.  “Connors has a lot to offer students and Senior Day gives us the ability to talk to prospective students and welcome them to the Connors Family.”

During Senior Day, students were offered tours of the Warner main campus led by student volunteer guides. Students toured the Stone Student Union, Russell Hall, the dormitories, the library, classrooms, and a number of classrooms on the campus.

Megan Duvall, Assistant Director of Recruitment, said the event was an overwhelming success.

“It was a great event with a lot of positive vibes from current students, faculty, staff, and all the participants,” said Duvall. “We host Senior Day to showcase our campus and give students and parents a chance to get a feel of what it’s like to be a Connors State Cowboy.”

During the rest of the semester, recruitment offers tours of both Warner and Muskogee campuses.

“We want the students to feel welcome from the first time they step on our campus,” said Duvall. “If we have a student interested in a sport we will try and take the student over to meet the coaches if there’re available, or if a student is interested in a specific field of study we gather as much information as possible and share that with the student and guardians before arrival.”
