Engage: College for a day
September 24, 2021
Words, Worlds, and Wonder
Oklahoma Wesleyan University is excited to announce the first-annual Engage College for a Day conference.
Engage is an educational conference designed to give 7-12th grade students a chance to experience what Christian higher education looks like. We are enlisting our best and brightest faculty to present compelling and culturally relevant lectures. We think that experiencing college first-hand is the best way to excite love for learning and continuing education past high school. Whether students are headed to OBU, JBU, SNU, OKWU, or elsewhere—we want to be a starting point in that journey. We believe that Christian education is key to kingdom-building.
This day will have carefully designed English, History, & STEM plenary sessions, along with student-centric breakouts. We are inviting your school to be a part of this event!
There is no entrance fee, and pizza will be provided for lunch at no cost. You are welcome to bring bag lunches if you like. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
OKWU is introducing the Legacy Scholarship. Oklahoma Wesleyan University wants to partner with your family’s investment in Christian Education, students who graduate from a Christian high school will receive a $2,000 scholarship annually.
