Hotline provides college info
The 1996 College Information Hotline (available via a toll-free call) provides timely information concerning post-secondary educational opportunities to Texas students and their families. One weekend in
January is set aside for the hotline operation each year. This year, the hotline will be in operation January 13 and 14, from IO arn. to 6 p.m.
The toll-free number, 1-800-829-4599, is publicized through radio, television, newspapers and high school guidance offices throughout the state of Texas. A hotline information packet is distributed in December and early January.
Teams of high school and college admission counselors will man IO incoming WATTS phone lines. Each year, about 75 professional counselors from schools across Texas volunteer to
field incoming calls. Spanish-speaking counselors are available each shift. The hotline is operated from the offices of the Greater East Texas Servicing Corporation in Bryan. All volunteers are members of the Texas Association of College Admission Counselors (TAC AC).
The hotline is directed to anyone in the state who has questions about any aspect of college admission, financial aid, degree programs, housing, student life and activities or special programs.
Historically, callers are predominantly high school students and their parents, but an increasing number of information requests are coming from middle school students, current college students adults who did not complete college or have never attended, and veterans with questions about their benefits.
The 1996 hotline is the eleventh year the project has been in operation. Funding is provided by the Greater East Texas Servicing Corporation. The Texas hotline is the largest project of its type in the nation. Last year, close to 1,000 calls about college admission and financial aid were handled by our volunteers.
During the call, counselors spend much time counseling students and their patents about planning for college and careers. Callers may also request information from specific colleges and universities. If counselors are unable to answer any of the caller’s questions, they will research the answer and provide the information within the week following the call.
Admission representatives from over 25 public and private colleges and universities in Texas will be on duty
throughout the weekend. Although it is impossible to guarantee that a counselor from a particular school will be present, we are often able to let tile caller speak to a representative from the school of interest.
Hotline operators also field many questions about vocational and tech meal schools and community colleges. We will also provide information about any college in the U.S.
Counselors’ sources of information include college publications, computerized information systems and the collective experience of the over 75 admission professionals who are volunteering their time. Members of the Texas Association of School Finan cial Aid Administrators will be available to assist with detailed questions about the financial aid process anc application procedures.

Perry to speak to GOP women
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Rick Perry will be the guest speaker on Jan. 22 at 12 noon when the New Braunfels Republican Women conduct their annual meeting. Lunch will be served at $6 per person in Wesley Hall at the First United Methodist Church.
Commissioner Perry surprised political watchers with an upset victory in 1990. He currently is serving his second term, and has proven he is the right man for the job. Perry has worked at the department to represent agriculture’s interests across Texas and the nation. In 1991, he was selected to serve on the U.S. Trade Advisory Committee on International Trade.
Perry began his political career in 1984, when he was elected to represent District 64 in the Texas House of Representatives. He won praise for his legislative work in 1989, and was named “one of the IO most effective lawmakers” by the Dallas Morning News. He served three terms before being elected to his current post.
A native of Paint Creek in Haskell County, Perry received a bachelor of science degree in animal science from
Texas A&M University. Upon graduating in 1972, he entered the U.S. Air Force and served as a C-130 pilot. He attained the rank of captain before leaving the service to return to ranching and farming in Haskell County.
Join the New Braunfels Republican Women at this annual luncheon meeting in Wesley Hall at the First United Methodist Church on Jan. 22 at 12 noon. For more information, call 625-6119.
