MTSU students, faculty and staff took to WGNS Radio recently to share information about the university’s new dance degree, the debut of an on-campus creamery and an extracurricular program for those who love the outdoors.
The details were shared during the June 19 “Action Line” program with host Bart Walker. The live program was broadcast on FM 100.5, 101.9 and AM 1450 from the WGNS studio in downtown Murfreesboro. If you missed it, you can listen to a podcast of the show here.
