Hispanic Student Day
Hispanic 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 400 local high school students of Hispanic heritage
to the university for a one-day introduction to college life after high school. 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 brief presentations. A keynote motivational speech by a Hispanic professional encourages students to develop their abilities and open their eyes to the demand for bilingual professionals.
In the Fall, 2020, the event will take place online, depending on the COVID-19 situation.
