North Park’s graduate and degree completion programs will be highlighted at an open house in the Johnson Center on Friday, Oct. 12, as part of Homecoming weekend festivities. The event will be held in the rotunda of the Johnson Center for Science and Community life.
Faculty and staff will be on hand to greet attendees and answer questions. North Park’s representatives include:
- School of Business and Nonprofit Management
- School of Education
- School of Music, Art, and Theatre
- School of Nursing and Health Sciences
- School of Professional Studies
- North Park Theological Seminary
There will be opportunities for interested students to apply on the spot, check the process of an application, and in some cases, gain immediate acceptance to a program.
Food, prizes, and free North Park University gear will be up for grabs throughout the open house, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Homecoming guests are encouraged to attend. All North Park undergraduate alumni are eligible to receive the Alumni Grant which offers 20% tuition reduction when they enroll in a graduate program.
Lori Scrementi, dean of the School of Professional Studies, says there are many reasons someone might choose to finish a degree or pursue a master’s degree.
“Perhaps it’s to receive a promotion at their current place of employment; to have an opportunity to pursue employment at a new company; to fulfill a personal goal of completing their degree; and for parents to be a model for their children that education is important,” says Dr. Scrementi.
