MTSU tested its tornado sirens on campus and at the Miller Coliseum Complex Wednesday, Nov. 8.
The brief midmorning test of the system was routine and required no safety actions by students, faculty, staff or visitors.
MTSU notifies the campus and surrounding neighborhoods before these tests each month. Tests are conducted on alternating Tuesday afternoons and Wednesday mornings to minimize distractions for the campus and for neighbors.
