MTSU Out of the Blue: February 2014

The February 2014 edition of “Out of the Blue,” MTSU’s video magazine, features plenty of sweet news from across a busy campus, including a professor’s look at the island origins of a delicious Valentine’s Day favorite.

  • Professor Ric Morris’ documentary on how and why Milton Hershey went to Cuba to expand production of the world-famous candy that bears his name.
  • A special local honor for MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee and first lady Liz McPhee, as well as an alumna’s award as the state Physical Education Teacher of the Year.
  • Campus construction updates to better serve students and the rest of the campus community, including progress on the much-anticipated “One-Stop Shop” and repairs for Murphy Center.
  • Recognition and record-breaking news for MTSU women’s basketball and tennis teams, along with a great matchup for men’s basketball, and more.
