High school students and their families are invited to Gannon University’s Open House this Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m. - 2

p.m.

 

Open House formally kicks off inside the Hammermill Center with a welcome from Gannon University President Keith Taylor, Ph.D.

Prospective students and families will also have an opportunity to visit a student engagement and resource fair or attend an information

session, as well as explore innovative academic programs through demonstrations and presentations led by Gannon students and

faculty.

 

Engineering and computer science students will showcase student-built drones, as well as unveil an augmented reality sandbox

designed and built by Gannon students that brings topography to life in real-time through augmented elevation color-mapping

topographic contour lines and simulated water using an Xbox 360. Similar robotics, innovative technology and research-focused

presentations will greet visitors to Gannon’s Centers for Advanced Engineering and Business Ingenuity.

In the Morosky Academic Center, laboratories will be open for demonstrations and tours, and live scenarios replicating those found in

actual healthcare facilities will take place in Gannon’s high-tech Patient Simulation Center.

 

At the beautiful Recreation and Wellness Center, students can hear about live testing that uses cutting-edge equipment in the Human

Performance Laboratory.

 

Learn about the new Cyber Engineering and Cybersecurity programs that will be housed in Gannon’s newly developed Institute for

Health and Cyber Engineering. Students interested in a career in the expanding criminal justice fields can experience demonstrations

using the firearms training simulator and fingerprinting lab at the Forensic Investigation Center, while the Palumbo Academic Center

and Center for Communications and the Arts will host multimedia and interactive activities in both facilities.

Opportunities to speak with students, professors, financial aid experts as well as alumni and student life representatives throughout

campus will make Open House an ideal opportunity to answer vital questions and make the college search process easier to navigate

for students and families alike.

 

Gannon University was built on Catholic Tradition that emphasizes affordability and access for all. Generous scholarships and financial

aid packages ensure that a high-quality Catholic education is within the reach of all who desire it, and Open House is a perfect place to

start.
