Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee, will be the next two MTSU True Blue Tour stops to recruit prospective high school students for 2019 and beyond.
With recent tour visits to Clarksville, Tennessee, and on-campus in Murfreesboro completed, the university’s caravan for the upcoming local visits is ready to travel in earnest. The next stopovers include:
• Oct. 2 — Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, 700 Cool Springs Blvd., Franklin.
• Oct. 4 — Millennium Maxwell House, 2025 Rosa L. Parks Blvd., Nashville.
The annual tour visits the major cities and regions in Tennessee and also heads to Bowling Green and Louisville, Kentucky; Atlanta, Georgia; and Huntsville and Birmingham, Alabama.
Public, private school and home-schooled students from Williamson, Davidson and surrounding counties are invited.
Counselors and community college staff are welcome to attend a 12:30 p.m. luncheon, where they, too, can meet and talk to MTSU staff, obtain information and watch a video and photo slide show featuring campus activities, growth and academic offerings.
The True Blue Tour events are free. To register for the reception or counselor luncheon, visit www.mtsu.edu/rsvp.
“We’re looking forward to meeting students and their parents during our visits to Franklin and Nashville,” MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee said. “Many of our outstanding students come from area high schools and our community college partners.”
Top university administrators, deans from MTSU’s academic colleges, advisers, admissions and financial aid staff will join McPhee in Franklin and Nashville.
Registered students have opportunities to win a certificate for an iPad, scholarships, Phillips Bookstoregift cards and other prizes at True Blue Tour events. The president also distributes two goody bags and scholarships during the luncheon, asking that the counselors and community college staff award them to deserving students.
To take a closer look at campus life, MTSU offers two more Saturday fall preview days — Oct. 6 and Nov. 3 starting at 8 a.m. in the Student Union — plus daily campus tours at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. that begin in the Student Services and Admissions Center.
