Oregon private colleges unite for week of activities

Linfield College campusLinfield College will welcome prospective students and their families to campus during Oregon Private College Week July 28-Aug. 1.

Linfield is joining 10 other Oregon private, nonprofit colleges and universities for the week, which encourages prospective students and their families to find the right college fit. Participants are invited to learn about academic programs and financial aid, meet experts in admission and tour the campus.

Sessions will begin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Students who visit at least four institutions during the week will receive application fee waivers. Students may use these fee waivers to apply to any Alliance member college or university.

The Alliance represents Oregon’s regionally accredited, not-for-profit private higher education institutions. The majority of students enrolled in Alliance member institutions graduate within four years and begin to make an immediate contribution to Oregon’s economy.
