Hundreds of Prospective Students Explore Jesuit at Open House
Families from all over the metro area braved the weather on Wednesday, Nov. 7 to see all that Jesuit has to offer at Open House. Prospective students and their families were able to explore the campus, learn about the programs, and meet the people that help make Jesuit the school that changes lives.
The tour began in the auditorium where families learned about the educational experience at Jesuit from school officials, including school president Fr. Christopher Fronk, S.J., and principal Peter Kernion ’90. Seniors William Bostick and Jacques Gaudet shared their Jesuit stories with the crowd, highlighting the many ways they have been formed by the faculty and programs at Jesuit. Bret Hanemann ’85, Jesuit’s admissions director, closed the program with words of encouragement to Blue Jay hopefuls.
After the presentation, Blue Jay student ambassadors guided families through Jesuit’s halls and in and out of newly-renovated classrooms, where guests interacted with alumni, faculty, and staff who spoke to them about Jesuit’s strong academic program, numerous co-curricular activities, spiritual and Christian formation, vibrant student life, strong guidance and college counseling departments, and much more. After touring the main campus building, attendees crossed Banks Street and entered the newly-renovated gymnasium and the Louis J. Roussel Building. The tour ended on the third floor of the Roussel Building with the co-curricular fair, giving prospective Blue Jays the chance to see more than 70 clubs and organizations Jesuit offers.
