MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — New and returning MTSU students got to know Murfreesboro a bit better this week when portions of the community came to them during the two-day event known as Meet Murfreesboro.

“I like the fact this school wants to get students involved,” said Chelbi Talley, 18, a freshman film and video production major from Memphis, Tennessee, who attended the Tuesday, Aug. 24, event in the Student Union Commons on campus. “It helps freshmen like me learn what’s on campus and in the area.”

Meet Murfreesboro is an annual two-day session where MTSU students, faculty and staff can learn more about Murfreesboro-area businesses. Day 2 will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 25.

The Great Escape, featuring comic books and CDs, Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic, Burger Bar, Clean Eatz and State Farm Insurance are among the Meet Murfreesboro vendors this fall.

Held by the Office of New Student and Family Programs, Meet Murfreesboro is a Connection Point activity, helping new MTSU students get connected and engaged in the campus community.
