Texas A&M University- Texarkana held its annual fall Preview Day on Thursday, October 19th and welcomed a record-shattering 611 potential students to the campus near Bringle Lake. The previous high mark for attendance at the annual event was fewer than 300 students. The event attracted high-school and transfer students from as far away as Houston. The total number of guests on campus for the event including students, parents, counselors, and coaches exceeded 850. The prospective A&M-Texarkana students began their day in the Patterson Student Center gym for a welcome from University President Dr. Ross Alexander. During the opening assembly the university randomly gave out eleven $1000 stackable scholarships to attendees. Students went through a rotation of three short seminars where they learned about admissions and financial aid, student life and the community, and the Ace Center and campus student success initiatives. During lunch the students were able to ask questions about university life to a panel of current students, before breaking into smaller groups to walk through academic facilities, visit with faculty members, and tour the residence hall.
