April 12 will not be a typical Saturday on the Sonoma State University campus.

More than 2,000 admitted students for Fall 2014 and their families will visit SSU to learn about different majors, campus housing, financial aid, and more on Seawolf Decision Day.

It is an event tailored to providing admitted students with the information needed to assist them in making their decision to choose SSU for the upcoming fall semester.

Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. at the gymnasium where everyone will gather until 10 a.m., listening to guest speakers outline the day's events. After this introduction, the campus becomes an open house where visitors can attend workshops of their choosing until 3:30 p.m.

This year, some of the workshop topics include financial aid planning, freshmen learning cohorts, advising, disability services, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) experience, study abroad programs, and academic sessions corresponding to specific majors.

"SSU Exposed," a students only presentation in Evert B. Person Theatre, features representatives from student organizations speaking about student life at SSU. They will answer questions and share information about clubs, student government, Greek life and more during an interactive session from 10:15 -11 a.m. or 11:15 a.m.- noon.

Tours will be offered of campus, the University Library, Green Music Center, Student Recreation Center and several residential housing villages to give students a feel of where they might be living.

SSU is known for being the most residential campus in the CSU system, and these tours will help potential students understand why. There will be open labs to explore throughout campus as well.

Current students of the Department of Music will perform in a "sampler concert" in Weill Hall at the Green Music Center at 1 p.m., giving potential music majors a chance to see what current students have learned at SSU.

There will be a Campus Fair located outside of Salazar Hall with representatives tabling from student organizations, academic departments, and student services from 11 a.m. -3 p.m.

Prospective students will have opportunities to meet faculty from various majors, talk with department staff, interact with current SSU students, and ask questions to help them determine if SSU is the right campus for them.

This is an invitation-only event for all admitted Fall 2014 freshmen and transfer students.
