True Blue Preview is a special day where high school and potential transfer students can enjoy the full campus experience. MTSU rolls out the blue carpet for 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.

Pevents, which are free, start at 9 a.m. in the Student Union Commons, weather permitting, or in the Student Union, and end mid-afternoon.

“Preview day is an exciting event for prospective students where they can come learn more about MTSU and attend information sessions for their intended major,” said Tony Strode, interim director of Admissions. “Students will also have an opportunity to tour the campus and see some of our housing options.”

The agenda includes True Blue Browsing with many departments on the Student Union’s first floor and in the second-floor ballroom, the welcome from MTSU officials at 10 a.m. in the ballroom, taking campus tours (10:45 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 1 p.m.) and housing tours (12:15 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 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.
