College Choices Abound

Vol State students transferring to a four year university will want to be in the Ramer building on Thursday February 11, 2010 from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., as this will be a unique opportunity to meet with several colleges and universities in and around the area.

“We have about twenty colleges so far. This is an opportunity for students to get all of their questions answered,” said Heather M. Harper, Assistant Director of Admissions.

“I’ll come. I think it is a good idea because people transfer. I am looking at Austin Peay or UTC,” said student Brandon Kellam. “You want to get a feel of what the school has to offer,” said Melissa Hopgood, student and President’s Ambassador.

“It provides our students with more of a diverse range than just the state universities,” said Harper. She said that attending Transfer Day gives students the opportunity to explore their options for those who haven’t decided which school they wish to transfer to.

“You can get applications and housing information. A general advisor and someone from admissions is usually there,” said Rachael Smith, student and President’s Ambassador.

The event will take place in the great hall of the Ramer building.

The colleges and universities scheduled so far are: Aquinas College, Austin Peay State University, Bethel, Cumberland University, East Tennessee State University, Lipscomb University, Maryville College, MTSU, Murray State University, O’More College of Design, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Student Assistance Corp., Tennessee Tech, Trevecca Nazarene University, Union University, University of Memphis, UT Knoxville (1), UT Knoxville (2), UT Martin, and Western Kentucky University.
