Preview Day set for Feb. 22

Ranger Preview Day begins Saturday morning, Feb. 22.

“This is our largest spring recruitment,” Chris Gore, director of new student relations, said.

A change for Ranger Preview Day this year includes moving the event to February instead of April, because most seniors have already made their college decision before getting to visit KC.

Also, New Student Relations is allowing attendees to experience the city of Kilgore outside the campus. Many area businesses and restaurants plan to offer discounts to Ranger Preview Day attendees.
