La Crosse, Wis. – (WXOW) – Viterbo University welcomed plenty of prospective students as they celebrated Wisconsin Private College Week.
Viterbo and 23 other private nonprofit colleges and universities across the state participated in the event, now in it’s 23rd year.
The touring students were able to move in small groups across campus and visit academic buildings, dorms and other facilities. It was also an opportunity to speak with students and hear about their experiences at a smaller school.
“It’s been interesting seeing what all the other schools have to offer.” Ethan Nott said. “Just being able to compare, contrast and seeing everything, it’s lets you see how a college students get to live everyday.”
Viterbo was a school close to home for Nott, but he added that some of his other possible choices could take him out of the area.
“It’s largely going to be his decision,” his father Steven Nott said. “I told him he could decide although we get a veto.”
Viterbo coordinator Katie Ausen noted that the visits are a crucial part of finding the right fit school for each individual.
