BRISTOL, Tenn., January 12, 2017 – High school students who want to experience what
it’s like to be a King University student can do so on Saturday, Feb. 4 as King hosts
its Open House event. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to explore
the Arts and audition for King University Performing & Visual Arts (PVA) program in
areas including instrumental, vocal, theatrical (performance and technical), photography,
graphic design, and videography.
During the Open House, King gives students and their families the royal treatment
and the chance to talk with various University representatives about the admissions
process, scholarships and grants, student life, degree programs, and much more. Students
interested in the arts will also have the chance to discover and develop their creative
talents through majors in Music, Theatre, and Digital Media Art & Design (DMAD).
"The Open House is a chance for students to check out what King University has to
offer,” said Tom VerDow, director of undergraduate recruitment. “Students will meet
with faculty and current student artists, giving them a first-hand look at the exceptional
programs King has to offer those in Performing and Visual Arts.”
Registration/check-in along with an academic and activities showcase begins at 9 a.m. Students will participate in an academic showcase where they will interact with faculty
and student organizations. Following, students will break into separate student and
parent information groups on a broad array of topics including: academics, student
life, and campus safety, as well as Q & A panels with current King University students.
Participants will also enjoy mock classes taught by King faculty.
Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet with King’s Career Success Center
staff members. “The Career Success Center encourages students to investigate career
paths, volunteer and intern, travel to new places, and build personal and professional
relationships that will connect them to a bright future,” says Donna Felty, regional
director of Career Development at King University. “We begin with freshmen and transfer
students when they enter King and help them build on the strong academic foundation
they receive here to become confident, compassionate adults who will shape our future.”
Representatives from King’s Financial Aid Office will also be on hand to speak with
those in attendance. “A quality education from King University can change a student’s
life, and our comprehensive scholarship and grant program can make it an affordable
option,” says Richard Brand, director of Financial Aid at King.
The Open House is an exciting chance for prospective students to experience what King’s
Performing & Visual Arts has to offer. Students and their parents will meet at 2 p.m. at the location of their audition (Kline Hall, Memorial Chapel, Sells Hall, Fine
Arts Theatre) on King’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn. The exact location of the students
audition will be provided to students who sign up and will also be in the student’s
folders if they attend the Open House. Once students report to their audition location,
they will have the opportunity to meet with PVA professors about their goals and aspirations.
“We are excited to showcase our Music and Theater programs as well as King’s DMAD
program which includes concentrations in Photography, Digital Media, Videography,
Web Design, and Graphic Design,” W. Patrick Flannagan, professor of Music and director
