Bison Days – College Preview

***UPDATE!!!!  (9/30/13)  You must pay Harding for Bison Days by paying with a credit card online.  This means you will only owe $25 to teenEPIC to the Youth group for transportation.

High Schoolers – If you would like to visit Harding University for Bison Days – OCTOBER 24-27,  you can go with the group!  We will leave THURSDAY, October 24 at 4:30 PM from the Lafayette building.  We will return Sunday afternoon around 4 PM (Tentative).  You will have to miss a day of school on Friday – Harding will give you a College Visit Excuse Letter (make sure you ask for it if you need it).

The cost of $70 includes:  Transportation, lodging, all meals in the Harding “Caf” for the weekend, Homecoming Musical, football game and a Bison Days T-shirt.  While on campus, you will have the opportunity to go to classes that you might major in, take a campus tour, stay in a dorm with college (probably Lafayette) students.
