While participating in Texas Tech University Independent School District's (TTUISD) fourth annual International Academic Summer Camp and traveling across Texas, approximately 30 Brazilian high school students will visit Texas Tech Thursday (July 16) where President Nellis will address and welcome them.

The International Academic Camp is an effort to recruit international students to Texas Tech while broadening their academic learning experience with TTUISD.

Starting in Austin, the Brazilian students participate in academic classes and excursions as they travel across Texas.

The Brazilian students will be available for interviews and photos during Nellis' address.

This is the first of two International Academic Summer Camps. The second set of students will be on campus July 29 when Texas Tech Provost Lawrence Schovanec will address additional Brazilian students at 9 a.m. in the College of Media & Communication, Room 83.
