Reacher Higher: Reconnect Week April 12-16 at Northwestern Enid, Woodward campuses

April 9, 2021

Reach Higher imageNorthwestern Oklahoma State University would like to reconnect with individuals in northwest Oklahoma, southern Kansas and the Texas panhandle who have already earned some college credit and may be looking to finish their bachelor’s degrees.

Special Reach Higher: RECONNECT Week events at the university’s campus locations in Enid and Woodward are planned during the week of April 12-16 where hours will be extended and an evening event is planned.

During this week, individuals will be able to apply to attend Northwestern, explore their bachelor’s degree options, receive advisement on finishing their degree, obtain financial aid counseling and tour the facilities.

The primary goals of Reach Higher: RECONNECT Week are to increase awareness of the adult-friendly bachelor’s degree completion options available through the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Reach Higher initiative and encourage adults who have earned some college credit to successfully complete their bachelor’s degrees face-to-face or online.

Northwestern-Enid, located at 2929 E. Randolph, and Northwestern-Woodward, located at 2007 34th Street, will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 12-16. On April 15, both campus locations will extend their hours to 7 p.m., and personnel will be available for potential students to ask questions and to have one-on-one advising to understand how to obtain their bachelor’s degree. During this week, students can register for giveaways, take a campus tour in-person or virtually, and meet other students, faculty and staff. Face coverings are required inside the campus building, and social distancing is being practiced.
