All high school seniors and their families are invited to Time Out for Tech 2020, which will be hosted by the Arkansas Tech University Office of Admissions on Thursday, Feb. 6.
“Time Out for Tech provides prospective ATU students with a chance to learn more about the academic programs, student housing and campus life available on the Russellville campus,” said Jessica Brock, director of admissions at ATU. “The day is designed to be both informative and entertaining as we provide a glimpse of the supportive learning environment and varied opportunities that exist at our university.”
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 2020 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 tours, a chance to meet with representatives from student organizations and sessions with staff members from such campus entities as financial aid, athletics and fraternity and sorority life.
All high school seniors attending Time Out for Tech will receive a free T-shirt and a photo opportunity with campus ambassador Jerry the Bulldog.
All members of the Arkansas Tech University community are invited to partake in a mini food truck festival as part of Time Out for Tech 2020. Current students, faculty and staff are also welcome to dine there from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. (or until the food is gone). Eight food trucks are scheduled to be in attendance.
The food trucks will be located on the sections of North Boulder Avenue and West P Street west of the Doc Bryan Student Services Center.
