Classics Day

9:00 am – 3:30 pm

McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center
Texas Tech University

Classics is teaming up with Language & Cultures to welcome teachers and students of languages other than English for a day of fun and learning at Texas Tech University! This is a day to celebrate the study of languages and cultures and motivate our students to continue their studies after high school. At Classics Day, participants will:

* Experience a sample university class
* Meet professors and university students
* Participate in fun activities
* Get a tour of the TTU campus
* Learn about careers with a degree in languages/cultures

Teachers should confirm participation by sending an email to william.tortorelli@ttu.edu no later than October 1st, 2018.


Buses may park free of charge in lot C16 (Commuter West), pictured here.

Teachers and students attending Classics Day can be dropped off at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center before continuing on to lot C16. Heading south on University Avenue, drivers can make a right onto 17th St. to get to the Alumni Center. After dropping everyone off, drivers can head back to University, make a right on 19th St., make a right on Texas Tech Parkway and then turn right into the C16 lot.

This event was made possible, in part, by a mini grant from the Humanities Center at Texas Tech University.
