4 Keys to a successful Open House experience

The Charleston School of Law will host its final Spring Open House this Friday on campus. The event will include opportunities to learn more about the mission and vision of Charleston Law, a Q&A with current students, a mock class and a campus tour.

Michael Banks, Director of Admission at Charleston Law emphasized the importance of being active during your campus visit. Banks said networking and asking questions are the keys to a successful campus experience.

Whether you are an accepted student, a prospective student exploring your options or the parent of a student interested in attending law school, here are our 4 keys to a successful Open House experience:

  1. Ask Questions: A law school open house is an opportunity to interact with current students. Our students love talking about their experience and they are open and honest. Take the opportunity to get their perspective of what it’s like to be a Charleston Law student.
  2. Say Hello: Introduce yourself to other prospective students who are at open house. These are your potential classmates, roommates, and/or future best friends.
  3. Explore Charleston: Is Charleston, South Carolina a place you can call ‘home’ for the next three years? There is a lot to do, see and explore.
  4. Share your Story: Wouldn’t you love to see posts and videos from other prospective students when they visit? Take pics and videos while you are here. Share them on your favorite social media platforms and tag us. We love sharing our future students stories!
