President, deans hold open houses in Memphis, Jackson

MTSU’s president and academic deans will be in Memphis and Jackson on Nov. 9 and 10, respectively, to talk with prospective students and high-school guidance counselors about the Murfreesboro campus.

Dr. Sidney A. McPhee, along with University deans, officials and admissions counselors, will host free, public open houses in Memphis on Wednesday and Jackson on Thursday.

The Memphis event will be held at The Great Hall and Conference Center at 1900 S. Germantown Road in Germantown. The Jackson event will be at the DoubleTree Hotel, located at the 1170 Highway 45 Bypass. Both student receptions run from 5 to 7 p.m.

“We’re bringing MTSU to you,” McPhee said. “We hope prospective students can join members of the MTSU community at one of these events and learn more about our excellent programs, wonderful faculty and beautiful campus in Murfreesboro.”

Prospective students can register to attend either event by clicking on the large “See you in Memphis and Jackson!” box at Walk-in attendees also are welcome.

MTSU, which is celebrating its centennial in 2011, is the oldest and largest university in the Tennessee Board of Regents system. It is the No. 1 choice of undergraduate students and transfer students in the state.

It offers more than 140 undergraduate programs in its nine colleges.
