Welcome Letter


Sign In
You are invited to sign- in for this event in the reception area through the main doors of O'Connor Hall, beginning at 10:30 a.m. We encourage you to chat with some of our current students and alumni who will be present.

Opening Session
At 11 a.m. in the Muriel and Virginia Pless Center for Performing Art, you’ll hear from President Donald R. Boomgaarden, Ph.D., and senior administrators who will welcome you to campus, share our academic goals and explain the happenings of the day.  You will also have the opportunity to hear from one of our current students.

SJC Parent Session
During this session, parents will be given a quick review of our Financial Aid package and the next steps towards securing awarded aid and, or SJC scholarships.  Additionally parents will be treated to a town meeting style panel discussion.  Various members of the college community will address questions from the audience regarding everything from classroom academics to student involvement, from undergraduate research to career preparation for their child as a student at St. Joseph's College.

Student Panel
While the parents enjoy their session, students gather in the McGann Conference Center located in O’Connor hall for a session of their own.  Here they can ask a panel of current SJC students questions about anything they want—classes, schedules, professors, activities, athletics and more. This interactive session allows for open discussion and the opportunity to learn a lot more about SJC.

Academic/Student Services Fair
Following the parent and student sessions, families are reunited in the John A. Danzi Athletic Center for refreshments and the Academic/Student Services Fair. Representatives from our academic departments will be available to share information about courses, career opportunities and the features of our majors and minors. Students can also talk with students, coaches and administrators about the many student life opportunities, athletic teams, support services and student organizations available. Additionally, classroom breakout sessions will take place in the Business and Technology Building (BT Building) during this time.  Campus tours will also be available and will depart from the Danzi Center lobby.
