TJC hosts Apache Preview Day

Nearly 1,000 potential Apaches and parents attended Tyler Junior College’s Preview Day held Saturday on the TJC main campus.

“Apache Preview Day is a half-day showcase where future students and their parents can get an up-close look at our campus and the many educational opportunities we have to offer,” said Dr. Ken Murphy, TJC dean of the School of Engineering, Mathematics and Sciences.

Participants toured the TJC campus and met with faculty, deans and academic advisors, got a look at campus activities and organizations, and participated in informative sessions on financial aid, scholarships and the Presidential Honors Program.

“I thought my first Preview Day would feel overwhelming, but all the staff, faculty and student volunteers at TJC were very helpful and made me feel welcome,” said Madison Fontaine, White Oak High School senior. “I look forward to becoming an Apache next fall.”

TJC offers more than 130 degree and certificate programs, including a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene and a new Bachelor of Applied Technology in healthcare technology and medical systems, as well as extensive workforce 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.
