May 15 Graduate Open House Can Help Advance Your Career in Education and Leadership and Organizational Development—Here’s How!

Posted by Amy Hanson on 5/2/19 8:34 AM

In our hyper-connected world, there are fewer and fewer life moments that still need to take place in person. We can get our groceries and packages delivered, we can work remotely, we can Skype with a doctor if we need medical care, and all of our social networks help us feel connected to people who are far away.

When it comes to exploring and choosing a graduate program, the personal experience remains incredibly valuable. Spending time with faculty and current students, or simply walking around the campus, can offer valuable insights about the College and our programs. No amount of time conducting online research can deliver this same experience.

That’s why we’re encouraging you to attend Silver Lake College of the Holy Family’s Graduate Open House on Wednesday, May 15! Keep reading for a closer look at this event and the importance of an open house as you consider your graduate school options.
