Students take part in Senior Day


Students take part in Senior DayHigh School seniors from Kansas and Oklahoma took part in Cowley College's Senior Day held Wednesday, October 25 on the school's main campus in Arkansas City. A total of 285 students and parents took part in the event.

Students were given an opportunity to tour the campus, while information was available from different organizations, clubs, and departments. A visitor survey was handed to each student to complete. Students were asked what their favorite part of the event was.

“The student survey showed they loved the setup of Senior Day and the ability to visit with instructors in their programs of study,” executive director of enrollment management Kristi Shaw said.

Students were also treated to performances from the Cowley College cheerleaders and individuals in the upcoming Theatre Department production of Mary Poppins.

A food voucher was given to the Senior Day attendees to sample food from one of the Arkalalah food booths. There was also a student panel with prizes given away at the end of the event.

Admissions representative Julianna Smarsh, who is in her first year at Cowley College, was impressed by the event.

“I had a blast and was fueled by the excitement from the students as they visited the booths and spoke to the various clubs,” Smarsh said. “It was a very informative experience not only for the attendees, but for me as well.”
