Tennessee Tech Puts Putnam Students First With Early Application

Tennessee Tech giving Putnam County residents early access to admission applications through its third annual Putnam First program.

Karen Lykins is the Interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Career Placement. She said that there are several advantages to letting Putnam County students have that early access.

“Tennessee Tech is home, that’s a natural place to go,” Lykins said. “We want to make sure we don’t take them for granted. We want to treat them just like other students when e recruit across these state and across the country. We need to do our part to show them they are special. That we want them here.”

Lykins said that this also helps students build a larger timeline of knowledge. She said that as soon as students submit their applications, they’ll immediately have connections to people who can answer their questions and concerns as they make their college decisions.

Lykins said that applications open up July 12th. Regular admission applications open on August 1st.

“We want students from Putnam County to know just how important they and their families are to Tennessee Tech,” Lykins said.“Tech draws students from across the state and around the world, but the university’s connection to the local community runs deep and students from right here in Putnam County bring so much to our university.

The university recently coined the phrase “Cookeville – Tennessee’s College Town,” to emphasize the close connection the university has with the city of Cookeville and Putnam County. Putnam First is another element strengthening that connection.
