Texas Tech Sets University Day for High School Seniors

Texas Tech University will host hundreds of high school seniors on University Day, Monday (Oct. 13).

The day is an opportunity for prospective students, families and friends to see first-hand what the university has to offer. “This is a day that provides prospective students an opportunity to see what Texas Tech has to offer,” said Karen Hamel, associate director of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Most importantly, University Day is designed for visitors to meet one-on-one with faculty, staff and students. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 13 in the United Spirit Arena, followed by a welcome from the Court Jesters, the Spirit Squads and other distinguished guest speakers. During the day, visitors will have a chance to visit academic information sessions, campus and housing tours, student services and organization fairs. “University Day gives prospective students a glimpse of college life,” said Jamie Eveler, admissions counselor. “There will be many opportunities to see what Texas Tech is all about.” For more information about University Day, go to www.visit.ttu.edu/uday or call (806) 742-1299.
