Potential Apaches and their families can get a free, firsthand look at Tyler Junior College during its annual Apache Preview Day, set from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, on the TJC main campus, school officials announced.

Check-in begins at 12:30 p.m.

“Apache Preview Day is a half-day showcase where future students and their parents can get an up-close look at our vibrant campus life,” said Nidia Arellano Hassan, TJC director of admissions.

“TJC has 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 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.”
