Congratulations again on your admission to Saint Joseph’s University!
Students at Saint Joseph’s University come from all over the United States and 23 countries. We have different traditions, different beliefs and different ways of looking at the world. What do we all have in common? The desire to live greater.
As you begin to weigh your options about which university is the best fit academically, financially, personally and socially, we want to invite you to campus for this exciting overnight event.
MAP: Multicultural Admissions Program is: designed to give you a first-hand experience of our dynamic campus life, curriculum, students and faculty. Come and experience the magis for yourself.
On Friday April 5, 2013 beginning at 2:30 pm you will:
• Learn about academic and cultural opportunities, student organizations, orientation and more
• Get an insider’s look at the interesting research and contributions of our faculty
• Interact with current students and potential future classmates as well
• Stay in campus housing with a current student
• Experience Hawk Hill like never before!
MAP will conclude after your overnight stay on campus. In addition, we urge you to join us for our Admitted Students' Day, on Saturday, April 6 to have the complete Admitted Students' experience. These two programs combined will give you the fullest picture of the academic and social life of a Saint Joseph’s student.
p.s. Your parents have the option of arriving earlier to attend a one-on-one financial aid session.
What to Bring
You will be hosted by a current Saint Joseph's University student and will participate in a number of events throughout your time on campus. Please be sure to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, and comfortable shoes for student activities.
