CTC to host Fast Track Finale for new students and info session for parents

Central Texas College (CTC) will host a free three-day workshop for all 2014 high school graduates interested in attending CTC this fall. The Fast Track Finale will be held in the Fine Arts Building (Bldg. 112) August20-22 from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day. The free workshop is designed to acquaint incoming CTC freshmen about the college and its services. Online registration for the event is open now at http://www.ctcd.edu/collegenow/fasttrack.html.

Fast Track Finale is designed to help incoming freshmen meet classmates, become better acquainted with the campus layout and the many students services offered by CTC. Students can get assistance with registration, guidance and counseling, establishing degree plans and financial aid during the event. “This is more than just a sit-down, hear a lecture type of event,” noted Kim Christian, event coordinator. “Students will be very active and enjoy energetic, upbeat team building activities and break-out sessions.”

During Fast Track, students will also get a tour of the Texas A&M-Central Texas campus (transportation will be provided). Students can also participate in a talent show, pep rally and other activities. Lunch will be provided the first two days. The third day will consist of a new student orientation to further acquaint students with campus services.

This is a great way for new students to receive valuable information about campus life, college readiness, the various campus clubs and organizations and school policies,” said Christian. “In addition to making new friends, students will also get to meet and develop a rapport with many of the people such as counselors, the financial aid staff and others who can help them become successful during their time here at CTC.”

Space in the Fast Track Finale is limited so students are requested to reserve their spot by registering online as soon as possible. Parents can also register online to attend the parent information session August 20 from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. Questions about the Fast Track Finale can be directed to the CTC Recruiting and Retention office at 254-526-1104.
