BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Bloomfield College's open house on October 14 drew a record-breaking number of prospective students and families to campus. More than 550 guests from across the Tri-State area were greeted by student workers and volunteers.

"This was the largest open house we have ever had at the institution," said Adam Castro, Vice President for Enrollment Management. "The Admission and Marketing staffs should be commended for the weeks of preparation required to pull this event together, and it was very well received by our guests. This was a great introduction to the College for prospective students."

 High School seniors were offered on-the-spot admission decisions, providing some students with their first official college acceptance. To add to the fun of the day, an ice cream truck and festive food were available to guests as well as a DJ and pumpkin painting section.

A welcome program, featuring President Richard A. Levao, Dr. Tresmaine Grimes, and Oumy Diene '18, kicked off the fall morning. Guests later went on a tour of campus and had the opportunity to learn more about academic departments, student services, and student clubs/organizations at information tables. Members of the Bloomfield College Alumni Association (BCAA) and College Trustees, John Skowronski '91 and Adebola Taiwo '09, among others, volunteered their time and helped greet families.

"Today was a great start to what will no doubt be a fulfilling year for the College as it reaches its 150th anniversary," Nicole Cibelli, Director of Admission. "The staff and the students came together to put on an amazing event."

The College's next open house is scheduled for Sunday, December 3.
