Lights, camera, action! April is an exciting time at Asbury University as engaging culture weekend brings Hollywood to campus. Prospective students and their families are invited to take part in the annual festivities by attending Media Communication Weekend, April 26-27.
This visit event is open to high school juniors and seniors, or college transfers interested in any Asbury program, but is especially memorable for those interested in the communication arts department.
“If students are interested in media communication and are looking for a Christian environment, this event is not to be missed,” said Mallary Wiley, associate director for undergraduate admissions and coordinator for campus visits and events.
Students will attend classes, worship alongside the current student body in Chapel, eat in the cafeteria and stay overnight in Asbury’s residence halls. They’ll also get to spend time with a student host at a pizza dinner Friday night.
In addition to the many opportunities to explore and get to know Asbury’s campus that a typical visit event offers, media communication weekend puts prospective students up close and personal with all things communication arts related.
They’ll get a tour of the Andrew S. Miller Center for Communication Arts from Dean Jim Owens and learn more about the media communication program and life at Asbury through info sessions on Friday and Saturday.
Engaging Culture Weekend falls in tandem with this special visit opportunity, offering prospective students a chance to attend engaging culture seminars with media professionals and end their weekend by getting dressed up for the thrilling, one-of-a-kind Asbury experience that is the Highbridge Film Festival. During the weekend, students can also check out student art exhibits around campus and look forward to hearing from the engaging culture Chapel speaker.
“The Media Com-munication Visit Week-end is perfect for guests interested in any area of the communication field,” Wiley said. “Guests are still able to tour campus, meet with an admissions counselor, worship in Chapel, eat in the cafeteria and stay overnight in the residence halls just like any other visit event. But, in addition, guests are able to attend the Highbridge Film Festival to enjoy Asbury student films and sit in on seminars led by media industry professionals.”
