University Day: High School Seniors Brave Cold to Tour Texas Tech

Despite the winter weather, Texas Tech University hosted hundreds of high school seniors Monday, for University Day. This day is an opportunity for prospective students, families and friends to see first-hand what the university has to offer.

"This is a day that provides prospective students an opportunity to see what Texas Tech has to offer," said Karen Hamel, associate director, Texas Tech Office of Admissions.

Most importantly, University Day is designed for prospective students to meet one-on-one with our faculty, staff and students.

Registration began in the United Spirit Arena Monday morning, followed by a welcome from the Court Jesters, the spirit squads and other guest speakers.

From there, visitors attended academic information sessions, campus and housing tours, student services and organization fairs.
