COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech is set to host the annual Upper Cumberland College Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 1 in the new Marc L. Burnett Student Recreation and Fitness Center, affectionately known on campus as the “Burn.”
“We are anticipating more than 2,000 high school students from the region and around 30 colleges and universities to attend,” said Director of Admissions Steve Keller.
Attending high school students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from more than 30 colleges and universities, as well as every college from Tennessee Tech. They will obtain hand-outs and information from each of these representatives as they walk from table to table in the gym area. Upper Cumberland students attending include seniors, juniors and some sophomores.
“Tennessee Tech has been the proud host of the Upper Cumberland College Fair for 29 years,” said Keller. “We’re honored to invite Upper Cumberland high school students to Tech’s campus to learn more about the amazing educational opportunities that await them after high school. We will have every college and school from Tech represented at this event, including engineering, nursing, ag and human ecology, fine arts, music, business, education and interdisciplinary studies. ROTC and our offices of scholarships and financial aid will also be there.”
With the event fast approaching, Keller added that registration is very limited at this point in the year. High schools should contact Tennessee Tech’s Office of Admissions if they would like to inquire about participation. The phone number is (931) 372-3888.
Tennessee Tech is ranked as a “Best National University” by U.S. News & World Report. The university offers more than 200-plus programs of study, and Tech grads leave with the least debt of all public universities in the state. In fact, based on total cost and alumni earnings, Tech provides students with the highest return on investment for any public university in Tennessee, according to PayScale.
