Middle Tennessee State University continues its “Paint Your Future True Blue” spring tour with upcoming visits to Motlow College’s main campuses.
MTSU recruiters will travel to Tullahoma, Tennessee, Tuesday, April 11, and to Motlow’s Smyrna, Tennessee, campus Wednesday, April 19. In between, a visit is planned for a “paint” event at Chattanooga State Thursday, April 13. All visits are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time.
University recruiters and other staff have been visiting community colleges across the state in order to recruit students who will be graduating and want to continue their higher education at MTSU.
‘We are hosting these events on the community college campuses in an attempt to bring MTSU to the students,” said Mark Murphy, coordinator of enrollment in the Office of Admissions.
Admissions representatives will be available to answer questions and discuss the transferring process, Murphy added.
“We will also have a representative from the MT One Stop on hand to field questions regarding financial aid, scholarships and more,” he said.
“Our mission is to bridge the gap from the community college and MTSU and hopefully make the transition from their current school to MTSU a smooth one once they have earned their two-year degrees.”
At the event, admitted students can get an MTSU ID card, learn more about Tennessee Transfer Pathways and other programs to help them successfully transfer and register for the Finish Line Scholarship. For more information, visit www.mtsu.edu/financial-aid/scholarships/transfer-finish-line.php.
MTSU’s other “paint” stops in Tennessee have included Pellissippi State in Knoxville; Nashville State; Volunteer State in Gallatin; and Jackson State.
