Time Out for Tech, the annual visit day that provides high school seniors with a preview of learning and living at Arkansas Tech University, is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 4.

“We are thrilled to host a fully in-person Time Out for Tech for the high school graduating class of 2022,” said Jessica Brock, ATU director of admissions. “Choosing a university is about finding the right fit…academically, personally and socially. Time Out for Tech is always a day when future ATU students find their fit on our campus. We look forward to helping that process take place on Nov. 4.”

Due to Time Out for Tech, parking lots BB (near Tucker Coliseum), PP (near the Alumni House) and QQ (near Williamson Hall) will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 4. Parking lot OO (near Hull Building) will be restricted. Individuals accustomed to parking in these areas should make alternate plans for Thursday, Nov. 4.

The opening session will start at 9:30 a.m. at Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field. ATU student musicians, the ATU spirit squads and Jerry the Bulldog, Arkansas Tech campus ambassador, will provide entertainment. Attendees will have an opportunity to win ATU scholarships and learn about important deadlines for admission to Arkansas Tech during the Time Out for Tech opening session.

Academic breakout sessions from 10:30-11:50 a.m. will expose prospective students to the wide variety of major fields of study available to ATU students.
