Middle Tennessee State University will be rolling out the blue carpet for hundreds of prospective students — including a special young group — and their families attending the final True Blue Preview of the spring.
MTSU Admissions will be hosting the preview day Saturday, March 25, on campus.
Prospective students from across the region, state and out of state will be attending the preview day. To register in advance, visit mtsu.edu/rsvp.
True Blue Previews, which are free, are special days where high school and potential transfer students can enjoy the full campus experience. They start at 9 a.m. in the Student Union’s first floor atrium and end mid-afternoon.
MTSU holds these distinctive events, with top university officials welcoming many future Blue Raiders to campus — the best time to explore what it means to be True Blue.
“This True Blue Preview will also host the newest class of True Blue 100 recipients — high school freshmen from across Tennessee identified by guidance counselors and teachers as students who demonstrate the ideals of our True Blue Pledge,” said Laurie Witherow, associate vice provost for Admissions and Enrollment Services.
“We use this day to begin a conversation with them and their families in hopes that they in the fall of 2027 they come back to us as MTSU first-year students,” Witherow added.
The preview day will include a free application workshop — anyone applying in College of Education Building Room 104 will have their application fee waived.
Visitors can participate in academic and departmental presentations, receive financial aid and scholarship information and choose from many different special interest sessions that are customized, based on the prospective students’ needs.
“It will be a True Blue day when we welcome hundreds of prospective students and their families to our final True Blue Preview of the semester,” said Tony Strode, interim undergraduate admissions director. “We hope they find a home here. All prospective students are welcome, and there’s room for more.
“Both transfer and high school students are invited to experience an extended tour of campus and housing facilities, meet with faculty and advisors from more than 160 undergraduate programs of study and learn more about MTSU.”
The agenda includes True Blue Browsing with numerous departments on the Student Union’s first floor and in the second-floor ballroom, hearing the welcome from MTSU officials at 10 a.m. in the ballroom, taking campus tours (11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m.) and housing tours (11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m.), lunch from noon to 2 p.m. and more.
Prospective students and their parents and family members can attend special 10:45 a.m. to noon sessions with most of the university’s academic colleges — Basic and Applied Sciences, Behavioral and Health Sciences, Jennings A. Jones College of Business, Education, Liberal Arts and Media and Entertainment — and at 12:15 p.m. with the Honors College in Paul W. Martin Sr. Honors Building Room 106.
Six student support services, including the MT One Stop for help with financial aid and scholarships, will be available.
