GCU Offers Freshman Fridays for High School Students

Lakewood, N.J., Jan. 21, 2010—On January 22, Georgian Court University encourages high school students to take advantage of Freshman Fridays at GCU. High school seniors can meet GCU students and get the help needed to make the right college choice. The admissions team and student ambassadors will fill students in on everything they need to know about Georgian Court’s application process, available scholarships, financial aid, academics, and student life. Participants can also find out what it’s really like to be a GCU student as they take a guided walking tour of the campus. Freshman Fridays take place at 10:00 a.m. in Lake House on the Lakewood campus and are free.

As Georgian Court’s guest for the day, students are invited to enjoy lunch in the Raymond Hall Dining Room. You'll also receive an application fee waiver—a $40.00 savings!
