Camp Attended: Texas Tech Summer Institute

Years Attended: 2013-2015 

The Texas Tech Summer Institute helped me make my decision to get my college education at Texas Tech. From the very first camp I attended, the people at TTSI and the overall atmosphere of Texas Tech made me feel right at home and I knew this is where I wanted to go to college. As a first-generation student, TTSI gave me the confidence that I could attend a university like Texas Tech and that Texas Tech wanted to help me get the best education possible. I've had the best time at TTU, and I thank TTSI for giving me the opportunity to experience Texas Tech and for their continued support during my college career.


Name: Mackenzie Cuellar

Classification: SophomoreMackenzie

Major: Undeclared, Pre-Nursing Designation

Graduation Date: Summer 2022

Camp Attended: Texas Tech Summer Institute

Years Attended: 2015-2017

This camp occurred during three consecutive semesters, starting with the first summer where we got to tour Texas Tech and really focus on team-building exercises. Our second summer we actually got to pick two classes we were interested in and get a sense of what it was like to take a college class. The final summer we were given ACT prep and many of the Texas Tech on-campus resources had a representative come to speak to us. I can honestly say that this camp is one of the main reasons I chose Texas Tech because it made me realize what this amazing university has to offer, and from that point, I've loved it ever since.
