MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State University is hosting its annual Computing Visit Day Oct. 9 to give prospective students and their parents a chance to see all that the University's Department of Computer Science and Information Systems has to offer.

Refreshments will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Colden Hall Room 3500 and end with a light lunch at about 12:15 p.m. The event is expected to end at 1 p.m.

Prospective students and their parents will visit with faculty, students and alumni; learn about careers in computing; engage in exciting hands-on activities; visit with admissions and financial aid representatives; and tour the campus and computing facilities.

"Our goal is to get as many potential students as possible to campus to learn about our really great computing science program here at Northwest," said Dr. Michael Rogers, assistant professor of computer science and information systems.

Northwest's Department of Computer Science and Information Systems is a diverse area of study that boasts majors in business education, business technology computer science, interactive digital media and management information systems.

Northwest's computing majors focus on a practical application of computing concepts. All classes are taught by faculty, not graduate assistants, who emphasize active learning rather than passive lectures.
