Texas Tech University

Language & Culture Day

31 October 2018
9:00 am – 2:30 pm

Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures (formerly "Foreign Languages")
Texas Tech University

Language & Cultures is teaming up with Classics to welcome teachers and students 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 Language & Culture Day, participants will:

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

Each teacher may register up to 20 students in teams of 2-4. See the guidelines below for details. Each student must fill out a registration form and have their parent or guardian sign it. Teachers should send all signed copies to alec.cattell@ttu.edu by October 1st, 2018.


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

Teachers and students of modern languages attending Language & Culture Day can be dropped off on Boston Avenue, just south of the Student Union Building. When drivers enter the TTU campus on Boston, they should go straight at the stop sign and pull over to the right to let people out. From there, it is a short walk across the R03 parking lot (in front of the Library) to get to the Foreign Languages building. Our sign reads "Classical & Modern Languages & Literatures." After dropping everyone off, drivers can head back to Boston, 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.
