Brescia University will be one of 20 private colleges and universities across Kentucky to welcome prospective students and their families to campus during the seventh-annual Kentucky Private College Week, June 14-18.
Kentucky Private College Week is a coordinated effort by the members of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU). The event is designed to simplify the college visit process for students and families and expose prospective students to Kentucky’s diverse nonprofit, private four-year colleges and universities.
A single point of registration at www.kentuckyprivatecolleges.org and common visit times at all 20 campuses – 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. (local time) daily – make it easy for prospective students to plan these summer campus visits. Each visit consists of a campus tour and information session covering admissions, financial aid, and other topics.
“Summer is a great time to hit the road and visit college campuses,” said Mason Dyer of AIKCU. “This is a really fun, easy way to get a jump on the college admissions process and learn what a great educational value Kentucky’s private colleges and universities offer.”
Upon visiting Brescia, families will learn about the various sources of financial aid available to private college students that help make a small college education affordable. Almost all students attending Kentucky’s independent colleges and universities receive some financial aid.Kentucky Private College Week can also help students save money. Each visitor to Brescia University receives an application fee waiver (a $25 value) during this week.
