Waxahachie, Texas – March 28, 2012 – Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) hosted Campus Days Thursday, March 22 – Friday, March 23.
Campus Days is a 2-day opportunity for prospective students to experience SAGU campus life. More than 720 students attended the event, breaking a previous attendance record set in Spring 2009.
Student registration began at 2 p.m. on Thursday. SAGU’s Admissions Department offered campus tours, an Academic Fair, and sessions about applications and Financial Aid during the day. On Friday, Admissions counselors were available for individual appointments with guests, while other guests attended classes with current SAGU students.
In the evening, campus groups hosted events including a student-produced sketch comedy show “Southwestern Live,” a block party, Jazz & Java, SAGU Unplugged, mechanical bull-riding, sports tournaments, and Late Night Worship. Pizza, cotton candy, beverages and other refreshments were provided.
Guests also attended the chapel service. During Friday’s chapel, SAGU prospect Destiny Rivercomb was awarded a $4000 scholarship. Randy Ijeh, a SAGU Church Ministries major, was the chapel speaker for the day.
Professors were impressed with the participation of the visitors. Faculty member Dana White said, “There was one young lady in particular who not only came to class but fully participated in our class discussion."
SAGU professors were also impressed with the consideration SAGU students showed to visitors by offering their seats and including them in discussions.
Professor Gary Royer said, “My 42 regular students in my ‘Understanding the Spirit World’ class were awesome! They invited the visitors to take the desks while my students sat on the floor in front. Then they allowed me to teach our guests as though they were the students and not just observers.”
