CU to host Aggie Sneak Peek in November

Prospective college students and their parents are invited to Cameron University's Aggie Sneak Peek Fall Preview Day on Saturday, November 7 from 9 a.m. until Noon. The three-hour event provides a prime opportunity to discover the benefits of a college education at Cameron.

"Aggie Sneak Peek will provide prospective students a glimpse into the opportunities available at Cameron University by allowing them to interact with faculty, staff and students from the university," says Jamie Glover, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management. "Choosing a university is a serious decision, and we want all prospective students to be fully informed about Cameron as they consider their options. Our goal is to demonstrate that Cameron can meet each student's educational goals as well as provide valuable information about the steps involved in becoming an Aggie."

The program kicks off in the University Theatre at 9 a.m. with registration and breakfast. Students and parents will have an opportunity to learn more about Cameron's strong traditions and exciting student life. The mascot, Ole Kim, and Cameron Cheerleaders will teach the fight song, followed by a welcome by Cameron University President Cindy Ross.

Detailed information about scholarships, financial aid, campus housing, and the admissions process will be provided, and CU students will share their experiences as a college student attending Cameron University. 

Attendees will have ample time to meet one-on-one with faculty and advisors during the Sneak Peek Browsing Fair in the Band Room of the CU Music Building. The Browsing Fair is a prime opportunity to explore degree programs and more. Representatives from student activities, student clubs, student governance organizations will also be available to answer questions.

"The one-on-one time that exists between our faculty and students is one of the reasons Cameron is the University of Choice for southwest Oklahoma. The Browsing Fair is a great example of the personal interaction that Cameron students experience," says Glover. "It's also an excellent opportunity for prospective students to learn about different majors and their requirements, as well as to find out about the student organizations that are vital to the complete college experience at Cameron."

Following the browsing fair Cameron's Aggie Ambassadors will provide tours of Cameron's vibrant campus and student housing.

To register for Aggie Sneak Peek, call (888) 454-7600, go to www.cameron.edu/aggiesneakpeek or email fmyers@cameron.edu. The first 200 students to register will receive a free Cameron t-shirt.
