UNOH, along with Ohio’s Private Colleges and Universities, Announce Summer Visit Days July 13 - 14

Posted on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

The University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to announce that the institution is joining a state-wide collaboration among Ohio’s private colleges and universities. The historic collaboration is beginning with a new summer program designed to allow families to visit up to four private schools over two days, July 13 and 14.

Ohio’s Independent College Visit Days are aimed at helping families understand how affordable a private college education can be. The days also highlight other benefits of attending a private college including a higher four-year graduation rate and lower default rate on student loans according to the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (AICUO).

“This is an unprecedented effort and the University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to be a part of it,” said Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, President of UNOH. “We know that the quality of the experience that students have at private universities like ours proves transformational for students. Some people think going to a private university is not an affordable option for them, but UNOH and all of our peers in the state want to tell Ohio’s families--YouCan!  The University of Northwestern Ohio is one of the most affordable private universities in the state!”

Families visiting two participating schools during the official Ohio Independent College Visit Days July 13 and 14 who document their visits on Instagram using #YOUCANVisitDays will be entered to win one of five $1,000 YouCan Awards.

“We want families to understand the real cost of attending our schools,” said Dean Hobler, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost at UNOH. “We want them to know that the benefit of smaller classes and personal attention they will get at UNOH will give them real results — such as higher four-year graduation rates, unlike other options in the state.”

The cost of a private university is more affordable when you learn the facts: students who start at a private university are more likely to graduate from that school and they’re more likely to do so faster than at a public university.
