The Department of History recently hosted a Graduate Visit Day, where prospective graduate students were able to learn more about the program and talk with professors, faculty, and current students.

Dr. Daniel Riches, Director of Graduate Studies, made the following statement about the event:

“Graduate Visit Day gave us the chance to welcome to campus twenty-two applicants who have been accepted into our graduate program for Fall 2017 admission, and gave those applicants the chance to see our campus and meet our faculty, our current students, and (perhaps most importantly) each other. These applicants are in the process of making a very important choice with broad ramifications for their future lives and careers, and the chief purpose of our event was to give them as much information as we could about what we as a program have to offer so that they can make the best choice regarding whether or not we would be the right option for their next academic home. We are thrilled that so many applicants took the time to attend the event, and we consider it to have been a big success. This was the first time we have hosted an event like this, and we plan to make it a yearly occurrence.”

Thank you to all the faculty, staff, and students involved. We hope to see you soon, prospective grad students!
