INTRODUCTION TO VALPO DAY FOR H.S. SENIORS & TRANSFER STUDENTS

Valpo University and the Valpo Restaurants & Shops are once again working as a community to welcome high school seniors and transfer students on Friday, December 4th. Visitors and their families will have a tour of the campus, discover the school’s academic offerings, tradition, and finish with a great dining experience at the Downtown’s remarkable restaurants. Each student and family members will receive food vouchers at participating restaurants. (see restaurants list below)

“WE’LL SHOW THEM WHY VALPO IS A SPECIAL PLACE”

-Chris Pavlou

Chef Chris and his Team Radius are huge fans of Valparaiso University. “We love welcoming a new generation of crusaders to Valpo University and the City of Valparaiso” said Pavlou.

As President of the Valpo Restaurant Association, Pavlou couldn’t be more honored when the University wanted to collaborate. Pavlou and his son have a strong connection with the University, frequently attend basketball games, and are huge supporters of the community values and leadership through service that is taught at the University.

According to Pavlou, “going to VU basketball games is a great experience. Going to the games allowed us to become familiar with the specialness of VU and its beautiful culture. We think we can help visitors and potential students discover what a special community we have in Valparaiso. The University helps make Valpo a great city, and conversely, the city helps make the University a special place to attend. Working together with the VU Staff is a great idea”.

Pavlou will make a point of welcoming the visiting families with open arms. He said the other restaurants in the Valpo Association share his enthusiasm to help the University. “When potential students and their families see what a friendly campus VU has along with a great downtown, we think kids will want to call Valpo home for 4 years. It’s a win-win”

VALPO IS A SPECIAL PLACE BECAUSE WE WORK AS A COMMUNITY. VALPO UNIVERSITY HAS EXEMPLIFIED THESE VALUES FOR NEARLY 170 YEARS. OUR VALPO RESTAURANT GROUP IS HONORED TO TEAM UP WITH THE UNIVERSITY AND WELCOME VISITING STUDENTS WITH GREAT FOOD AND A WARM RECEPTION.

-Carlos Rivero, Don Quijote Spanish Restaurant

 

Jim Jano Janesheski, proud father of 3 children that have graduated with honors from Valpo University agrees. He feels VU prepared his kids to come out of college with a balance of ethics, values, and a strong education. “We believe Valpo is special from start to finish, from the University, the Downtown, and the community itself”

TOMORROW’S BRIGHTEST ROCKSTARS ARE ALSO LOOKING  FOR A GREAT COLLEGE TOWN…. AND VALPO HAS IT”

-JIM JANO JANESHESKI
