Come ‘Discover TAMIU’ April 6, 90+ Activities Offered



Rain or shine, a day full of fun and educational activities for the entire family will be offered at “Discover TAMIU,” Saturday, April 6 from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. at Texas A&M International University.

Now in its fifth year, Discover TAMIU is a campus-wide annual open house featuring over 90 activities for all ages. The event serves as an opportunity for community members to engage with the University in a meaningful way, while enjoying the sights and sounds of campus life.  

Gina González, associate vice president of Student Success, and one of the event’s key organizers, said Discover TAMIU truly offers something fun for everyone.

“Children will have the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities in our musical sessions, colorful performances, and challenging brain twisters; teens will experience what it takes to become a true Dustdevil and learn how to conquer the world with education and a little motivation; parents and college readiness professionals will be taken through a whirlwind of useful information that will prepare them to be college-savvy; and community members will have a chance to meet our gifted faculty, students and the leaders of tomorrow while enjoying the beautiful surroundings at the University,” explained Gonzalez.

The day-long celebration offers five different  “Pathways” to explore and enjoy. Included are an ‘Artistic Avenue’ Pathway that allows participants to express themselves through creative art, dance and music. The ‘Spirited Speedway’ Pathway acquaints individuals with Dustdevil traditions.

In the ‘International U’ Pathway, participants can explore culture, the humanities and social sciences with a global twist. Through the ‘Business Boulevard’ Pathway, participants can learn about how business plays a role in the world.  Finally, the ‘Scientific Journey’ Pathway encourages participants to learn more about science.

Highlights of the day include a plethora of children’s activities, mariachi and dance performances, Planetarium shows, a baseball game, electric car demonstrations, a giant bubble maker, an interactive science activity bus, an obstacle course, soccer training, a video game party, magazine cover photo booth and so much more.
