Middle Tennessee State University's annual True Blue Tour to recruit prospective high school and community college students from Davidson and surrounding counties visits Nashville Tuesday, Nov. 1.

The Nashville student reception starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Hotel, 611 Commerce St.

The event is free, but students should register in advance at Walk-ups are welcome. At 11:30 that morning, MTSU hosts Nashville-area counselors and area community college staff for a luncheon.


Planned annually by the MTSU Admissions Office, Nashville will be the seventh stop on the 11-city tour, which goes from Memphis to Johnson and also ventures to Atlanta, Huntsville, Alabama, and Bowling Green and Louisville, Kentucky.

MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee and interim Provost Mark Byrnes will join other administrators and deans from the eight academic colleges, advisers and staff from admissions and financial aid on the tour. They will answer questions from prospective students, transfer students and their parents at the events.


"Our entire team always looks forward to these visits with outstanding prospective students and their families," McPhee said. "It's a great opportunity to share the exceptional educational experience MTSU offers. We welcome our alumni and friends from across the region to join us and tell others about MTSU."

Dr. Deb Sells, vice president of Student Affairs and vice provost for Enrollment and Academic Services, calls the tour "our signature recruiting event for MTSU," one that's "just as important for high school freshmen and sophomores to begin gathering information as it is for juniors, seniors and transfer students to meet with us as they finalize their college choice."

MTSU holds a second Fall Preview Day and FAFSA Frenzy Saturday, Nov. 5, and a Spring Preview Day Saturday, March 18, both starting at 8 a.m. in the Student Union.

Thursday, Dec. 1, is the deadline for prospective freshmen to apply and be considered for major scholarships if they meet all scholarship criteria and complete the application process.
