This Friday was the first Trojan Day of the new HLGU school year. Trojan Days are a special time where students interested in attending HLGU come in to tour campus and get a feel for what it’s like to be a student here.
There are many fun activities on Trojan Days including worship and praise, meeting HLGU admissions staff face to face, touring campus, eating in the dining hall, and even sitting in on classes. There was a great group of excited students ready to check it all out.
Rain or shine, the show must go on, and rain was no stranger to this Trojan Day with students going through most, if not all of their campus tour in the rain. Some had umbrellas, some had hoods, and others braved the rain with nothing, but it didn’t stop them from having a great time.
This is the first of six Trojan Days on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University for the 2021-2022 school year. Director of Admissions, Rachael Abrahamson says, “getting the opportunity to see potential students on Trojan Days is always exciting! I personally, really like the check-in [because] that is the time that I have to walk up to my students and just talk to them and their parents. I get to hear what they are interested in, help introduce them to others who are interested in similar fields, or get them connected with people here at HLGU who are doing what they want to do!”
The next Trojan Day is scheduled for Friday, October 1. Prospective students wishing to attend can sign up here.
