MOUNT OLIVE- Over 250 incoming freshmen and their parents attended the University of Mount Olive’s Admitted Student Day on Wednesday, June 23.  It was the first such event to be held at the University in over a year.

“We are so excited about having these incoming students and their parents on our campus,” said Tim Woodard, Vice President for Enrollment, Marketing, and Communications.  “We are looking forward to a vibrant and active fall semester, and this event was the kick-start to great things ahead.”

During the four-hour event students met with Health Service Director Holly Daly, received student ID’s, attended an opening session with UMO President Dr. H. Edward Croom, and met with the University’s various schools and key departments.  After a delicious lunch, participants had the opportunity to tour campus, including the residence halls, and visit the UMO Bookstore.  Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and Admissions staff members were on hand to answer questions and assist with the completion of paperwork.

The next Admitted Student Day is scheduled for July 21 from 10 AM to 2 PM.  There is still time to enroll at the University of Mount Olive.  To apply, visit
