Whether you’re coming to MTSU to enjoy an evening of theater, learn from a weeklong conference or tour the campus as a prospective student, the university’s new Visitor’s Guide will help you find your way.
The free full-color guides, which will be available around Murfreesboro as well as across MTSU, feature detailed campus maps, general information about the university’s programs and departments, popular area visitor attractions, contact information and details about the community.
The new, glossy, magazine-style 2013-14 edition was created as a helpful resource for the campus and is designed as both a recruiting tool and an important resource for MTSU. It’s written by the university’s Undergraduate Admissions Office and prepared by the Office of Creative and Visual Services.
It offers insights on student life at the university and in Murfreesboro for visitors, including prospective and newly enrolled students and their families, current students, campus event/conference attendees, alumni and new university faculty and staff.
“The community is vital to the success of MTSU and we wanted to use this new publication as an opportunity to promote both Murfreesboro and the university,” said Dr. Debra Sells, vice president for student affairs and vice provost for enrollment and academic services.
“The magazine also includes an improved and visually appealing self-guided walking tour, making it easier for visitors to explore campus without a formal tour/tour guide. We hope folks will like it!”
