What:      Prospective freshmen, transfer and graduate students thinking about enrolling at UMass Lowell will learn about the breadth and depth of the university’s academic programs and exciting campus life during the Fall Open House, the largest on-campus information event of the year. Attendees and their families may meet with faculty, staff and students and tour UMass Lowell’s campus, where in the past year the university has opened six new buildings, including new residence halls and academic facilities. Exhibits, resource and financial-aid information and academic presentations will also help illustrate why PayScale.com recently rated a UMass Lowell education as providing the 10th best return on investment among the country’s public universities, based on the cost of attending and graduates’ lifetime earning potential, and why Forbes ranked UMass Lowell 10th among the nation’s Top 25 Best Value Colleges.
