Record-breaking attendance at Ranger Preview

November 13, 2009

Ranger Preview at Northwestern Oklahoma State University saw 376 students for the annual event, setting an all-time attendance record.

Attendance increased by 33 percent over last year. For the fourth straight year, Ranger Preview attendance has been record-breaking.

“It was the best Ranger Preview I have been a part of to date,” said Matt Adair, director of recruitment.

“The crowd was energetic and really seemed to be enjoying the day on campus. The attendance was amazing.”

In total, 700 students and family members were on campus to see all that Northwestern has to offer. Students who attend Ranger Preview automatically receive a $400 scholarship to attend Northwestern and live in Alva.

After filling out applications and visiting with representatives from campus organizations, students and families enjoyed a performance by the Ranger band and cheerleaders. A free lunch for those attending was provided in Coronado Cafeteria.

“We really appreciate the efforts put forth by the faculty members and student organizations to get up early on a Saturday to meet with these students,” Adair said.

Adair also commended his staff in the office of Recruitment: Calleb Mosburg, assistant director of recruitment; Travis Biaggi and Sabrina Watson, recruiters; and Andrea Crawford, office manager, for spending countless hours visiting high schools, calling students and organizing every detail of Ranger Preview.
