ZANESVILLE, Ohio -- Ohio University-Zanesville's Office of Student Services awarded two scholarships Tuesday night, Nov. 18, at "Green and White Night," an annual event that provides a sneak preview of what college is all about.
The scholarships equal one-quarter's tuition and were awarded by random drawing. Adele Sabol of Columbus received the adult student award, and Amanda Light of Senecaville, a senior at Meadowbrook High School, received the student award.
More than 160 people attended this year's "Green and White Night" to learn essential information about the admissions process and financial aid, including over 60 prospective students who experienced college-level learning in the real environment.
Professors held sample lectures on topics including drawing, global communication, rock music, human genetics, and political choices in America. Current University students were on hand to provide campus tours and to answer questions from their unique perspective. Other sessions included information on psychology, modern languages, and electronic media, as well as designing your own degree and improving study skills.
Enrollment at Ohio University-Zanesville has been steadily increasing for the past five years. Classes will begin January 5. For more information, contact the Office of Student Services at (740) 588-1449 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
