Agenda and Overview

Check-in for the event will open at 8:45 a.m. in Showalter Hall. Students and guests will go to the first floor to pick up name-tags, swag and additional event details.

An optional campus tour will occur from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m. Tours will leave at 8:45, 9:00 and 9:15 a.m. Please arrive by 9:10 a.m. to join a tour!



This is the official event kick-off! Our Admissions team will welcome you to campus and make sure you have everything you’ll need to enjoy the day’s activities—including how to win a $1,000, $1,500 or $2,000 EWU scholarship!


Based on your major interests, you’ll be able to engage with faculty to learn more about being a student at EWU. You’ll get the opportunity to connect with all 4 colleges!

Enjoy lunch on us and visit with many of our campus resources at the student resources fair. Connect with the financial aid experts and you’ll discover the ins and outs of paying for college and your financial aid next steps. (Fun fact: EWU has had the lowest tuition and fees in Washington since 2012!) Admissions staff will also be available to discuss your next steps!

We’ll wrap up the day with a few presentations from Housing and Residential Life, Financial Aid and Scholarships and the Admissions department. We’ll also be giving away the $1,000, $1,500 and $2,000 admitted student scholarships in a random drawing. If you feel good about your experience and decide EWU is the right fit for you, staff will be available to help you go through your next steps.

After the closing session, students and guests are invited to participate in the housing tours to learn more about your living options at EWU. We’ll also have admission staff available for final questions. (Optional)
