TAMIU 'Get Here' Open House June 17
Students weighing their summer and Fall higher education opportunities
are the target of a special Texas A&M International University event
scheduled Thursday, June 17 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Student Center.
That's when the University will host "Get Here: An Open House"
to help students get answers to their higher education questions.
Minita Ramírez, executive director of enrollment management,
explained that the Open House, now in its second year, is intended to
help students, their friends and family to learn about the University,
its resources, its programs and its future.
"In the past two weeks, thousands of students have completed their
high school education. Many are still considering what their next step
in higher education will be, how much it will cost, what help is available,
what they can expect and how they can succeed. 'Get Here' is designed
to offer these students and their parents a one-stop opportunity to consider
TAMIU. With this event, we're simply saying, 'Get Here,' and we'll get
you the answers you need," Ramírez said.
She explained the University will have a variety of resources of information
available, including applying, financing and living the new higher education
"We know that financing is always a major concern and will have
financial aid counselors on hand who will be able to help students with
online electronic filing. We'll also be able to assist with applications,
talk about testing, review schedules, provide a look at student life at
TAMIU, introduce faculty in various disciplines and even provide tours
on request. We'll also have some great food," Ramírez explained.
She said the 'Get Here' atmosphere focuses on giving visitors a true
sense of what TAMIU is all about.
"This is an exciting time for this University. We're one of the
fastest-growing regional universities in the state, offer 57 undergraduate,
graduate or doctoral degrees and have an amazing faculty and growing campus.
Athletics are well established, our Center for the Fine and Performing
Arts offers new opportunities and the new Science Building with an amazing
planetarium is nearing completion. We're also about to begin Phase V expansion,"
Ramírez said outreach activities like "Get Here: A TAMIU
Open House" help bring the message of the University's infinite possibilities
home for both students and parents.
