MTSU initiates recruiting events with Sept. 24, Nov. 5 Fall Preview Days

Middle Tennessee State University will welcome prospective high school students and their families to visit the campus Saturday, Sept. 24, in the first of two Fall Preview Days.

MTSU conducts preview days as 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.
