Middle Tennessee State University will be rolling out the blue carpet for prospective students and their families attending two upcoming True Blue Preview events.
MTSU Admissions will be hosting preview day events Saturday, Feb. 11, and Saturday, March 25, on campus.
Hundreds of prospective students from across the region and state will be attending the upcoming preview events. To register in advance, visit mtsu.edu/rsvp.
The preview day visits will include a free application workshop — anyone applying in College of Education Building Room 104 will have their application fee waived.
Both are special days where high school and potential transfer students can enjoy the full campus experience. 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.
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.
Preview events, which are free, start at 9 a.m. in the Student Union’s first floor atrium, and end mid-afternoon.
“We’re extending a special invitation to our admitted students who haven’t visited the campus yet to attend the Feb. 11 True Blue Preview,” said Tony Strode, interim undergraduate admissions director. “ When they come and see the campus, visit with faculty and advisors and meet other MTSU students, we hope they will find a home here.”
Regarding the March 25 preview day, Strode said “we’re additionally inviting the newest inductees of the True Blue 100, our program that recognizes nominated high school freshmen from around the state who their counselors see as students who exemplify the qualities in our True Blue Pledge.”
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. 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.
Six student support services, including the MT One Stop for help with financial aid and scholarships, will be available.

Honors College Open House, daily campus tours
Another upcoming special event will be the Honors College Open House, taking place on Monday, Feb. 20.
The Honors College fosters the academic excellence and nurturing environment of a small, select, private, liberal arts college within the setting of a major university. The agenda includes a mixture of information about MTSU, educational events, and fun activities for the day.
MTSU offers daily campus tours at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the fall. Self-guided tours also are available. For more information, call 615-898-5670.
