Seeking Scholarship Day Assistance

Scholarship Day for the incoming freshman class will be held on Saturday, February 1.

Undeclared students will be attending the morning session of Scholarship Day. We are looking for faculty members to help interview Undeclared students who have not yet indicated a track of study. In the past the number of Undeclared students has exceeded the number of faculty members available to interview them in the allotted time, so any volunteers would be much appreciated.

Faculty interviewers will be needed from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Please consider this a real opportunity to recruit these students to your divisions.

If you are available to help or have any questions, please contact Vivianne Nassif at Vivianne.Nassif@desales.edu  or Gabe Gigliotti Gabe.Gigliotti@desales.edu
