Time Out for Tech 2016 Scheduled for Feb. 4

All high school seniors and their families are invited to Time Out for Tech 2016, which will be hosted by the Arkansas Tech University Office of Admissions on Thursday, Feb. 4.

The annual preview day provides prospective Arkansas Tech students with a chance to learn more about the academic programs, student housing options and campus life opportunities available on the Russellville campus.

“Arkansas Tech strives to create an environment where each student is comfortable and has the opportunity to pursue his or her educational goals,” said Shauna Donnell, director of admissions and associate vice president for enrollment management. “That commitment to personal attention has allowed Arkansas Tech to establish 17 consecutive years of record enrollment. This year, more than 12,000 students chose Arkansas Tech. We look forward to welcoming our next group of outstanding freshmen to Time Out for Tech 2016.”

Time Out for Tech check-in and a registered student organization fair will start at 8:30 a.m. at Tucker Coliseum, followed by the opening session beginning at 9:30 a.m.

There will be a drawing during the opening session for three tuition scholarships to Arkansas Tech for the fall 2016 semester. In order to win, individuals must be high school seniors and present.

Following the opening session, high school seniors and their families will have an opportunity to meet with faculty from the academic program that interests them the most.

Time Out for Tech will also offer campus and residence hall tours, a chance to meet with representatives from student organization and sessions with staff members from such campus entities as financial aid, athletics and Greek life. All Time Out for Tech participants will receive a free T-shirt and a photo opportunity with campus ambassador Jerry the Bulldog.
