Fall Semester Begins At Tennessee Tech

Tennessee Tech University students are moving into residence halls Thursday on what officials are calling the Great Move-In Day. About 335 students will call New Hall North home for the first time as the new $22 million complex, complete with grill, sorority suites, convenience store and state-of-the-art classroom, opens its doors. This evening, TTU senior Henry MacAfee, and special musical guests All of Us will perform at the Backdoor Playhouse. Students are invited to enjoy coffee and music from 8 to 11 pm. The show is free, but donations will be accepted for the performers and the Tech Players. At 3 p.m. Friday, freshmen and their families will gather for Convocation in Eblen Center. New students, all dressed in purple shirts, will recite an academic oath of integrity with TTU Provost Jack Armistead. They will be introduced to their academic deans and campus leaders before singing the Tech Hymn with the Golden Eagle marching band.
