COOKEVILLE, TN - Tennessee Tech University is set to host its annual open house Preview Day on Saturday, Sept. 30. Tech has tailored the event to appeal to both prospective students and their families.

“We have added some new features this year and are excited to showcase all that Tech has to offer,” said Director of Admissions Frank Tittle. “We have increased the number of student organizations that will be present, so that our current students can engage with prospective students. We will also have a new Cookeville section to showcase why Cookeville is ‘Tennessee’s College Town.’”

Tittle added that representatives from every academic department and college will be available to meet with students so they can explore the different majors.

“With an emphasis on our academic programs, students can decide their perfect fit here at Tech,” said Tittle. “Students and their families will be able to take tours of the colleges, campus and the residence halls throughout the day. Complimentary lunch will be provided in the cafeteria inside the Roaden University Center.”

Students will have opportunities to learn about Tech’s admissions process, explore different majors and submit applications on-site to attend the university. Information sessions on special topics will be hosted throughout the day including financial aid, scholarships and the transfer process.

“For students who are on the fence about applying, Sept. 30 is our last day that you can apply for free for undergraduate admission,” said Tittle. “We have encouraged students to take advantage of our free application period that runs through the end of this month.”

Registration for Preview Day is currently open. There is no cost for the event, but all students and guests are asked to register in advance. Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 30 in the Hooper Eblen Center.
