Potential Apaches and their families can get a free, firsthand look at Tyler Junior College during its annual Apache Preview Day, set from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, on the TJC main campus.
Check-in begins at 12:30 p.m.
“Apache Preview Day is a half-day showcase where future students and their parents can get an up-close look at our vibrant campus life,” said Nidia Arellano Hassan, TJC director of admissions.
“TJC has more than 125 degree and certificate programs, including a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene and a new Bachelor of Applied Technology in healthcare technologies and medical systems, as well as extensive training and technical programs. In addition to academics, TJC has nationally ranked athletics and performing arts programs, all at about one-third of the cost of a four-year institution.”
Participants will be given a tour of TJC’s campus, have the opportunity to meet with faculty, deans and academic advisors, get a look at campus activities and organizations, and participate in informative sessions on financial aid, scholarships and the Presidential Honors Program. They will also receive a TJC T-shirt and information packet.
