As the MTSU spring semester winds down, a university partnership will add a splash of fun to the rigors of studying.
Simply Summer, MTSU Student Programming & Activities, Campus Recreation, Housing and Residential Life and Health Services are sponsoring four events that should help students relax a little and momentarily take their minds off writing papers and any tests or exams they will be taking.
As a bonus, students may win prizes at all events.
Events that will be held from now through May 2 will include:
- MT After Dark, tonight from midnight to 2:30 a.m. Friday, April 12, which features free movies at the Premiere 6 theater at 810 NW Broad St. in Murfreesboro. Doors will open at 11 p.m. Students can choose one theater and film to attend. A valid MTSU ID is required for entry. A shuttle service will be provided from MTSU; visit www.mtsu.edu/events for pick-up times and location.
- Summer Bash concert on the Keathley University Center Knoll, scheduled 3 to 5 p.m. Friday, April 12, featuring Humming House with special guest Parker Deal.
- Midnight Play Night at Go USA Funpark, located at 2270 Armory Drive in Murfreesboro. From 10 p.m. Thursday, April 25, until 2 a.m. Friday, April 26, students play for free in all the Go USA activities: mini golf, go-karts, batting cages, driving range and arcade games.
- Midnight Breakfast, which will be held starting at 10 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at McCallie Dining Hall. The two-hour event ends at midnight. May 2 is study day; finals begin Friday, May 3.
University Summer Sessions representatives will be promoting the opportunity for students to attend any of the summer terms.
The full summer term runs from May 20 to Aug. 16, while other terms are scheduled May 20-June 7, June 10-July 12, July 15-Aug. 16 and June 10-Aug. 16. The Regents Online Degree Program summer term runs from June 3 to Aug. 9.
“We thought it would be a good time to talk about summer school and have a good environment,” said David Foster, director of marketing for the University College.
