On Sunday and Monday, February 16-17, a group of prospective students from near and far came to visit The General Theological Seminary as part of their discernment process. Along with tours of the campus, housing, and the Christoph Keller, Jr. Library, they experienced life at GTS, including opportunities for worship, study and socializing.
On Sunday, they attended a special Evensong in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd after meeting with this year's Chief Sacristan, Hershey Mallette '15. On Monday, the prospective students took part in a newly initiated, student-designed Eucharist. They also sat in on classes such as Presiding at the Liturgy with Prof. Patrick Malloy and Interpretation of the New Testament with Prof. Deirdre Good. Later, they participated in a panel discussion and met with GTS professors. Intermingled with the academic and liturgical experiences, prospective students were given plenty of opportunity to socialize with the GTS community, including through the community lunch in the refectory, dinner at the homes of currents students, and a reception at the Dean's residence.
The Prospective Students Days are planned to offer a deeper understanding of General Seminary to those who are considering study at GTS, but campus visits may be scheduled at any time. Prospective students who are interested in General Seminary should contact the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
