RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (March 23, 2021)–Neither a global pandemic nor snow can stop Time Out for Tech 2021.
Arkansas Tech University’s largest annual preview day for high school seniors has been rescheduled for April 14-16. It was originally planned for Feb. 11-13 but was postponed due to inclement weather.
The April version of Time Out for Tech will be tailored to high school seniors who have been admitted to Arkansas Tech for fall 2021. It will provide them with an opportunity to learn more about the academic and campus life opportunities available at Arkansas Tech while adhering to the safety protocols spelled out in the ATU pandemic recovery framework.
“Even though we will be unable to host many of our signature Time Out for Tech events, including our large opening session at Tucker Coliseum, we believe it is important to provide this opportunity,” said Jessica Brock, ATU director of admissions. “The groups will be smaller and additional safety precautions relative to the COVID-19 pandemic will be in place, but Time Out for Tech will remain a beneficial experience for high school seniors who have been admitted to Arkansas Tech for fall 2021. We want them to experience ATU for themselves and discover why our university is the right fit for a diverse community of almost 11,000 students.”
High school seniors interested in programs offered through the College of Business and the College of Education will visit ATU on Wednesday, April 14.
Those who seek to study in the College of Arts and Humanities and those who are undecided on their academic interest will participate on Thursday, April 15.
Those interested in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences as well as the College of Natural and Health Sciences will have their Time Out for Tech experience on Friday, April 16.
The daily Time Out for Tech programs are scheduled for 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Attendance will be limited. Each high school senior will be permitted to bring one guest. Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt and a complimentary brunch or lunch.
