Tuskegee, Ala. (March 27, 2017) – Hundreds of prospective students and their families converged on Tuskegee University to get an up close and personal look at the university. The annual Spring Open House was held on Saturday, March 25, and was a welcoming event to be enjoyed by all. Student ambassadors and university administrators gave an overview of everything from academic programs and financial aid to residence life and extracurricular activities.

Over 1,000 students, parents, grandparents and siblings came to see what Tuskegee University had to offer and were treated to a rousing Tuskegee welcome. The event is organized by the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Management and offers a full slate of fun, activities, and information designed to share the Tuskegee experience with the visitors.

Visitors joined university administrators, faculty & staff members and students in the Gen. Daniel “Chappie” James Center for information and entertainment. Greetings were brought by academic deans, administrators and the TU Court. The entertainment line-up included performances by the SGA and student leaders, ROTC units, cheerleaders, Greek organizations, the melodious Golden Voices Choir, and the high-stepping Marching Crimson Pipers Band always brings everyone to their feet. 

The activities then moved out onto the spacious university lawns where our visitors were treated to the beautiful campus scenery along with academic and student services booths, and a delicious lunch.

The full day’s activities came to an end, but prospective students were invited to come back and be a part of the rich Tuskegee history.
