Hannibal, MO -- Registration is open for prospective students and their families for Hannibal-LaGrange College's Fall Visit Day/Parents' Day on Saturday, Oct. 7.
This annual event allows students to learn more about academic and student life opportunities on the HLG campus, and for parents of current students to enjoy the day of activities on campus.

A Fall Visit Day is an opportunity for prospective students and families to come to know HLG on a personal level,@ said Dr. Ray Carty, vice president for enrollment management. Prospective students can go on campus tours, meet faculty and attend seminars on financial aid, athletics and mission opportunities. Other events include a tailgate party and soccer games.

Parents and families of current students are also invited for the day's events. This allows parents to familiarize themselves with their college student's environment away from home. Performances by HLG's Jazz Band and ministry groups also will be featured. The ministry groups include Vision, a Southern Gospel men's quartet; Praise Song, a contemporary vocal and instrumental ensemble; Covenant, a six-voice women's ensemble; and New Edition, a repertory theatre troupe.

Everyone is invited to cheer on HLG's soccer teams on Saturday afternoon. The Lady Trojan's game will begin at 1:00 p.m., and the men will play at 3:00 p.m. Both games will be held at Blackwell Field on the HLG campus. During the games, HLG's Student Activities Committee will be hosting a tailgate party to which the public is invited to attend. This annual event is held the first Saturday of October and typically draws more than 300 guests to campus. To register for Fall Visit Day, prospective students can call the Admissions Office at 800-HLG-1119. Students can also register online at www.hlg.edu. For more information about Parents Day activities, contact the Student Affairs Office at 573-221-3675, ext. 231.
