Middle Tennessee State University welcomed high school students and their families to campus for the season’s second Fall Preview Day Nov. 4.

The event provides a way for prospective students to see the campus, take tours given by student guides, learn about departments, programs and student organizations and meet faculty and staff from academic areas and the Division of Student Affairs.
