TTU hosts Transformations Conference for adults seeking to go back to school

Learn to transform all those reasons for not going back to school--including it's too hard, I'm too old, it's too expensive--into forgotten thoughts during a conference hosted at Tennessee Tech University designed for adults seeking to further their education.

The Transformations Conference will be held 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., March 29, in TTU's Matthews/Daniel Hall. Speakers will share information about how to earn the degree you've always wanted, how to find the right program, and how to navigate admissions, registration and financial aid. Several nontraditional students will be on hand to describe how they accomplished their goals

"We are hoping to bring people back to school who may have started college and had to quit or who completed a high school degree or GED and would like to learn more about community colleges, technology centers or university degree programs," said Lachelle Norris, TTU associate professor of sociology.

"If continuing an education or getting that degree you've always dreamed of is of interest, we welcome you to our conference," she said.

There is no charge for the conference, and free childcare, parking and lunch will be provided.
