COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech now offers special themed visit days to prospective high school students and their families.
Starting this fall, students can choose from a list of special themed visit days, which allow them to spend more in-depth time with their academic program to see how it aligns with their interests and career goals. VIP campus tours are still available year-round. To register, students can visit tntech.edu/visit.
“The fall season is the perfect time to visit the campus of Tennessee Tech,” said Director of Admissions Steve Keller. “We have the most beautiful campus in the state, and our new special visit days allow for a focus on the prospective student’s major. They get to explore that program, meet faculty from the department and talk with current students. This really lets the student see the opportunities for them to continue their education here and find what program best fits their career interests.”
These special themed visit days include business on Oct. 27; agriculture on Oct. 30; art, craft and design on Oct. 30; and exercise science on Nov. 17.
“This is the first year we have promoted themed visit days,” said Keller. “We did one earlier in October for computer science, and it was very well received. It creates a more personalized experience when students can focus on their majors and start making those connections before they are even on campus full-time.”
In addition to these special visit days, Keller added that university also revamped its existing VIP campus tours this fall with the addition of the new Tennessee Tech Trailblazers group. Trailblazers officially formed its inaugural class with more than 40 student members, and this new group offers personal, one-on-one campus tours to prospective students and their families, while also fostering genuine connections between current Trailblazer students and future Golden Eagles.
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.
