Summer Connection Series: Pepperdine Caruso Law Admissions Prepares to Welcome Outstanding Incoming Class
This week, the Pepperdine Caruso Law Office of Admissions prepared welcome packages for students who have been admitted to attend the School of Law in the fall. The cheerful project was the result of immensely successful outreach efforts to connect with admitted students in which planned in-person events were modified to online formats. As the result of enthusiastic interest and participation in an array of presentations, Pepperdine Caruso Law is proud to be inviting one of its most outstanding classes in its history.
In April, the annual Admitted Student Open House was held through a series of five live webinars that allowed admitted students to hear from their future professors and administrative personnel, while having an opportunity to have their questions answered. Pepperdine Caruso Law was very pleased to have over 300 attendees during the week of webinars that included a welcome from Dean Paul Caron and presentations on the law school's many renowned institutes. As a result of the webinars, the Admissions Office answered more than 60 questions about the law school and its programs that were posed by the attendees.
With the popularity of the admitted student webinars, an additional series of three webinars with Professor Steve Schultz were added so admitted students could continue to communicate with one of Pepperdine Caruso Law's most engaging professors. Professor Schultz answered a range of questions about life as a law student and the Pepperdine community.
In addition, Dean Caron's annual tradition of welcoming admitted students to his house is currently being held in a series of "Coffee with the Carons" online events. The opportunity to speak to Dean Caron and his wife, Courtney, has been immensely popular as they have hosted coffee visits with more than 100 invited admitted and current students so far, with additional dates being added.
The entire series of admissions events has proven to be so successful that Director of Admissions Nicole Serleto-Chavez commented, "This is the first time our office has hosted virtual open house webinars and other campus events. Due to the high level of interest and participation, we plan to continue offering webinars into future years so admitted students who cannot visit the law school campus prior to accepting their offer of admission will still be able to experience Pepperdine Caruso Law and our exceptional community."
