A group of more than 30 alumni, their children and other family members attended SCO’s first ever Alumni/Child Admissions Forum in July.
Hosted by Student Services, the event was designed to provide information about SCO’s admissions process for alumni with prospective students in their family.
Attendees heard about undergrad, GPA and OAT requirements. Two Q&A panels featured a mix of students and faculty answering questions about what it’s like to attend SCO.
Among those who visited campus were AOA President Joe Ellis, OD ’86, and his daughter, Hannah, who is interested in following in her dad’s footsteps. Following the event, alumni and their guests attended a special reception.
“We really enjoyed attending this event,” Dr. Ellis said. “It reminds us all how optometry is a competitive program looking for the best students possible, and that’s good for our profession.”
The college hopes to host future similar events offering academic and clinical observation and campus tours. Alumni needing more information should contact [email protected] or contact Joe Hauser or Sunnie Ewing at (901) 722-3228.
