Mid-Atlantic Christian University hosted Royal Tailor at the Walls Down Tour this past weekend for College Preview Weekend (CPW), September 26-28.
Students arrived on campus Friday morning, and got to experience a typical day in the life of a student at MACU. Visiting students, went to a chapel service at 9:30 and they sat in on a class called Acts, taught by Professor Ronnie Woolard. Visiting students ate lunch in the cafeteria and interacted with current students, staff, and faculty. During the afternoon, students hung out in the lobbies, sat on the swings, played games such as ping pong and corn hole, and interacted with one another and MACU community.
Friday night was the Walls Down Tour, featuring Royal Tailor, with special guests Manic Drive and B. Reith. The concert was well received and full of energy, and the students clearly got into it, with some students standing right up to the stage. One student even got pulled up out of the crowd to dance on stage with Royal Tailor. Following the concert, students enjoyed a pizza social in the lobby before either hanging out some more, or heading off to bed after a stimulating day.
Saturday morning continued with brunch in the cafeteria, followed by the students going to a high ropes course in the Outer Banks. Students also visited Jockey’s Ridge and flew kites, and enjoyed a day in the beach atmosphere, eating lunch out as well. Students came back to campus Saturday night to enjoy dinner and a movie on the lawn. Sunday morning, students met in the lobby for breakfast, and then went to a local church, Journey Christian Church, for Sunday morning service.
During CPW, students were able to tour the campus, tour the local area, as well as meet and interact with some members of the community and of MACU, and in the process were hopefully meeting future classmates and friends. If you missed this event, you missed a lot of fun, but not to worry…there will be more visiting opportunities in the future!
