TLU Preview - An Event for High School and Transfer Students
When: Saturday, Nov. 14, 2020
TLU Preview is an event for junior and senior high school students and transfer students who are exploring colleges and want to learn more about TLU. We host two fall TLU Preview events in October and November and one in the spring.
The livestream event features the following:
- Welcome message from TLU’s President Dr. Debbie Cottrell.
- Introduction of the TLU Admissions team so you’ll get to know the admissions representative who will be working with you throughout the enrollment process.
- A conversation with current students so you can hear first-hand what it’s like live and learn on our campus.
- Meet some of our professors and learn more about our academic programs as well as the opportunities for faculty-student research, internships, and what some of our alumni are doing after they leave TLU.
After the event livestream, you will be invited to view a special behind the scenes look at new digital content developed just for prospective students.
