Summer 2017 MTSU Magazine highlights 10 initiatives to boost academics

The summer 2017 edition of MTSU Magazine includes a list of 10 initiatives taking shape at MTSU, resulting in a campus growing in quantity and, most importantly, in quality.

“MTSU is already a great university,” wrote MTSU Magazine editor Drew Ruble. “The largest provider of college-degreed workers in the Midstate, MTSU has experienced significant growth in recent years, including over $700 million in construction. But the university is not done building.”
