Luther College will participate in Iowa Private College Week

Luther College will participate in Iowa Private College Week, a weeklong celebration encouraging prospective students to explore Iowa's 25 private colleges and universities.

Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to come to Luther's campus and visit with professors, meet coaches, chat with current students and learn about academic and social opportunities Aug. 3-7, at 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. each day.

Students who register for either a morning or afternoon session will get an introduction to Luther and a tour of campus. They will also receive a complimentary lunch and free Luther t-shirt. Parents are encouraged to attend, visit with admissions counselors and review options at a financial aid session.

To register for Iowa Private College Week, go to http://www.luther.edu/admissions/iowa-private-college-week/, or contact Luther's Admissions Office with questions, [email protected] or (563) 387-1287.

Students who visit at least three colleges during those five days and are accepted into a private college in Iowa are entered to win $500 to spend in their new college's bookstore.

Not only would this be a great time to take a look at Luther, but participants can also enjoy spending some additional time in the Decorah community. Decorah is recognized for its beauty, outdoor recreation (hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, tubing and fishing) and abundance of unique coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping opportunities.

A national liberal arts college with an enrollment of 2,400, Luther offers an academic curriculum that leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree in more than 60 majors and pre-professional programs. For more information about Luther visit the college's website: http://www.luther.edu.
