“We are requiring mask-wearing, social distancing and all the other CDC guidelines. We understand how important it is to stay safe,” he said.

The schedule of events starts with check-in at the Sue Morris Sports Complex at 11:00 a.m., followed by a welcome and introduction at 11:30 a.m., live music begins at 12:00 p.m., and campus tours will take place hourly from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. The Sue Morris Sports Complex is located at 1294 U.S. 33 in Glenville.

“We have two vehicles that will be taking them around campus,” Manchin said of the campus tours. “In between every time we move some students, we will disinfect with spray and clean the vehicles up. We know it will be safe.”

Manchin said one of his favorite events for prospective students is a mock crime scene put on the criminal justice department.

“We will be having students go through and seeing how that will be investigated. We have an outstanding criminal justice program at Glenville State College and a number of students who have enjoyed it,” he said.

According to GSC, prospective students and their families will have the chance to meet with Financial Aid staff, Admissions Office staff, academic department representatives, athletic coaches, student organizations, and have a chance to win a $500 scholarship.
