The “Education and Faith Night” will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, May 31, at Olive Branch’s location at 1115 Minerva Drive in east Murfreesboro.

“We’re hosting a fun community event to promote the importance of education and how students can remain involved in their faith while in college,” said Vincent Windrow, pastor of Olive Branch and interim assistant vice provost for student success at MTSU.

MTSU admissions staff will be on hand to discuss the university’s offerings, assist with the application process and answer financial aid questions.

The event will also include free food and games and activities such as a football-throwing contest, corn hole competition and rock-wall climbing.

“This event is a great opportunity for students and parents in Rutherford County to gain more knowledge about MTSU up close and personal,” Windrow added. “It’s designed not to be religiously stuffy but rather to be part of the ongoing effort to strengthen the relationship between the university and the community – rain or shine.”
