COOKEVILLE – Tennessee Tech University is set to host the annual Upper Cumberland College Fair on Wednesday, Aug. 31 in the Marc L. Burnett Student Recreation and Fitness Center, affectionately known on campus as the “Burn.”
“We are set to welcome more than 2,000 high school students from the region and around 30 colleges and universities to attend,” said Interim Director of Admissions Frank Tittle.
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.
“This is actually our 30th year hosting the Upper Cumberland College Fair,” said Tittle. “We love doing this event and being able to bring all these opportunities to our local high school students. We will have every college and school from Tech represented at this event, including engineering, nursing, agriculture and human ecology, fine arts, music, business, education and interdisciplinary studies. ROTC and our offices of scholarships and financial aid will also be there.”
Although registration has closed for this on-campus fair, Tittle added that high schools should contact Tennessee Tech’s Office of Admissions if they would like to inquire about group visits. The phone number is (931) 372-3888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Prospective high school students and their families are always welcome to schedule their personal campus tour at tntech.edu/visit.
Tennessee Tech is ranked as the number one public university in the state, according to Money Magazine, as well 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.
