The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s inaugural UTC Road Trip: The Power C Tour returned home on Wednesday, Nov. 16, with a standing-room-only event in the University Center Tennessee Room.
The final tour stop brought 206 total guests to campus, including 103 prospective students—with 32 qualified high school seniors who met admissions criteria being admitted on the spot.
The tour included previous stops in Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville and gave prospective students and their families a feel for UTC. Representatives from the academic colleges, student services and the UTC Executive Leadership Team—plus current students and mascot Scrappy—were on hand to answer questions and make connections in a fun, relaxed environment.
As part of each event, students had opportunities win $1,000 Power C scholarships, $500 housing stipends, orientation registration discounts, and UTC-themed prizes and gear.
During the tour, UTC personnel visited with more than 500 prospective students and parents, awarded more than $15,000 in scholarships and stipends and admitted more than 100 students in person.
