Student panel answers questions of admitted students and their families in the BHC multipurpose room
According to the PHC Office of Admissions, this event gives admitted students a chance to preview where they might find their personal niche on campus. For many, speaking with the faculty members was a special highlight.
High-school senior Hannah Massman came to Admitted Student Day fresh from a second-place finish at the AWANA National Summit in Yukon, Oklahoma. Considering a major in Government, she found herself drawn to PHC especially for its Christ-centeredness and the way its core curriculum links into the best of the Western tradition.
Quoting Dr. Walker’s morning speech, Hannah’s father, Lawrence Massman noted that he appreciated how “PHC is not about ‘marinating students red or blue,’ but about growing them deeper as human beings.”
Admitted Student Day took advantage of the spacious facilities in the Barbara Hodel Student Life Center, expanding into the gym’s multipurpose room for the student panel session and using the Grand Lobby for registration. Many staff members noted what a blessing the building is.
“The BHC allows us to hold events like this,” said an admissions representative. “We hope to do many more in the future.”
