Summer visits to College not affected by economy


Despite high travel expenses and a tough economic climate, summer visits to the College have not slowed, Brian Whitson, director of university relations for the College, told

“’This could be in part because of the relative affluence of a large percentage of families in our market,’” he said, “’or an indication that many families feel the campus visitation experience is exceedingly important and are continuing to dedicate disposable income to the process of exploring campuses they are considering.’”
