Hispanic Day

HSD ENG 2017Hispanic Student Day is the LCRC’s response to the growing Hispanic population and its need for access to higher education. Since its inception in 2001, the Hispanic Student Day has been completely planned, organized and directed by student workers in the LCRC, and it is fully staffed by ETSU students earning Service-Learning hours. 

This annual event brings over 100 local high school students of Hispanic heritage to the university for a one-day introduction to after high school life. Our goal is to encourage Hispanic students to complete high school and further their education.

During the event, representatives from several university offices including Admissions, Advisement, and Financial Aid give a brief presentation. A keynote motivational speech by a Hispanic professional encourages students to develop their abilities and open their eyes to the demand for bilingual professionals. The students are later led on campus tours and rendezvous for lunch, where university recruiters are available for questions.
