Wilson College was represented at the Pennsylvania Horse Expo March 5th– 8th , 2015 by Patricia Beidel, Director of Admissions. The Pennsylvania Horse Expo is a great event for recruiting prospective students for the Equestrian program. The Expo also provides an opportunity to attract more members for the college equestrian teams, such as Hunt-Seat and Dressage. This is the fourth Pennsylvania Horse Expo a Wilson representative has attended.
Beidel was out-of-town at another recruitment site during our interview. She said, “The expo was awesome! I talked with a number of prospective students, current students and alumnae who were very interested in Wilson and the alums especially were excited to see us in attendance.”
The Admissions Department recruited Barbara Burnett, adjunct professor in the Equestrian Studies Department, to the College Prep Invitational (CPI) this year. The CPI, based in Wellington, FL, was held Jan. 16th-18th. Wilson College posted a full page ad in the CPI program booklet to increase the college’s exposure to potential students.
There are no upcoming recruitment events specifically geared towards the Equestrian majors, but tours are available for prospective students interested in learning more about the program.
