Judson College will host its spring Preview and Scholarship Day on February 21. Prospective Judson students and their parents are invited to visit the Judson campus, explore the college’s academic programs, meet current students and faculty, and learn more about admissions and financial aid. Anna Henderson, a Judson junior and Student Ambassador from Tuscaloosa, Ala., explains that attending a Preview Day or scheduling a campus visit is vitally important for prospective students and parents: “The love that students and faculty have for this college is deeper than any words or postcards could ever communicate. It’s important to come and feel the warm invitation that Judson offers.”
The February Preview and Scholarship Day will begin with check-in and an 8:00 a.m. Student Activities session, when campus organizations showcase opportunities for service and leadership that help each student to find her place in the Judson community. Prospective students may spend the night in a residence hall (optional), meet faculty and staff in breakout sessions, enjoy lunch in the college dining hall, and participate in campus tours guided by Judson Student Ambassadors. For students interested in learning more about Judson’s Equine Science program or joining the IHSA equestrian team, an opportunity will be available to visit the on-campus equine center and watch Judson’s IHSA Western team compete.
High school seniors and college transfer students who have applied to Judson may take an academic scholarship test to compete for one full- and five partial-tuition institutional scholarships. Student-athletes may try out for one of Judson’s NCCAA intercollegiate athletic teams. Athletic scholarships are available for basketball, soccer, softball, and volleyball. Additionally, Judson’s Fine and Performing Arts division will host music and theatre auditions. Performing arts scholarships are available in piano, organ, voice, and theatre.
Henderson, who is now a Judson Student Ambassador, remembers her impression of the college after her first Judson preview day experience: “I remember driving away from the campus after my very first scholarship day at Judson and telling my dad how kind, generous, and passionate about Judson everyone was. My dad replied, ‘Well, it’s a preview day; I think many colleges will seem that way.’ But I thought, ‘No, there’s something special about Judson. It’s different and genuine. It feels like home.’
