Lancer Day aims to solidify college choice for high school students
Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 20, 2019) – Savannah Olszewski, a Lake Elsinore resident, made her commitment to California Baptist University official on Feb. 19 at Lancer Day. At the “Choose CBU Party,” she wrote her name on the large CBU letters, indicating her decision to become a Lancer beginning in fall 2019.
Throughout the day, Olszewski also learned about academics at CBU, met her peers and learned about the CBU culture.
“I’m a nursing major, so I felt a lot more comfortable with what I needed to do for the major,” Olszewski said of her experience at Lancer Day. “I chose CBU because it is a mix between a big university and a small private university.”
Lancer Day is one of several days that CBU holds throughout the year to connect prospective and accepted students to campus life. More than 200 potential Lancers, many accompanied by their parents, participated in the event. The visitors had the opportunity to attend chapel, hear from deans, program directors and various campus offices.
“This day is meant to help [potential students] make their decision to choose CBU. It’s giving them a sneak peek into CBU,” said Dustin Lowe, director of undergraduate admissions. “The Choose CBU Party is a celebratory and exciting and fun way to say ‘I’m committed.’”
Chloe Daniels, a high school senior from Huntington Beach, said she liked the faculty, the academics and the food at CBU. She also made her commitment to attend CBU at Lancer Day.
“I know what I want to do for my career. I just have to find the path to get there. Today really helped me with that,” said Daniels, who plans to major in psychology. “The housing is nicer than a lot of other colleges I toured. I felt like, ‘I can see myself living here.’”
