Western New England University to Host Undergraduate Open House March 6th

SPRINGFIELD, MA (02/26/2021) Western New England University will host high school students and their parents in a virtual open house that will be streamed live on Saturday, March 6th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The event is free, but advanced reservation is required by visiting the website at or calling the Admissions Office at 413-782-1312.

Executive Director of Undergraduate Admissions Michelle Goodfellow will lead guests on a live virtual tour of the campus, introduce them to the University’s new President, Dr. Robert Johnson, and show them what life is like as a Golden Bear. Along the way, prospective students and their families will interact with current students, learn about how the University has been able to safety welcome our students back to campus, win prizes and learn about academic opportunities within the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Engineering. Also featured will be the new 4U University Advising Program and options for academic support; admissions and financial aid; living on campus and commuting; student activities; athletics; and more.

“I am so excited to have a chance to meet our prospective students at this event,” says Goodfellow. “Even though we are not able to have large numbers of students on campus, I am confident that those that attend virtually will get a true sense of the Golden Bear spirit that exists on our campus.”

To wrap up the event, Goodfellow will host a live panel, where guests will be able to ask questions directly to current Western New England students.
