MTSU recently brought its True Blue Tour to Clarksville for the first time, with a showcase of the university's programs being presented at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center by a cadre of recruiters, admissions staff, administrators and other team members.
The True Blue Tour is on a 14-stop schedule that will take it to cities in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia. MTSU recruiters are also reaching out to students in many other rural counties in the area.
“Our key annual recruiting event, the True Blue Tour, gets bigger and better each year, and we're looking forward to our first-time visit to Clarksville,” MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee said. “The end result is a wonderful opportunity for prospective students and their parents to hear firsthand from MTSU representatives, as well as get important information about admission and financial aid.
“This is a prime opportunity to explain the unique educational experience MTSU offers.”
As many as 200 – 300 were in attendance for the 2-hour event, including local high school students and their parents. Appetizers and refreshments were served, MTSU merchandise was given out, and some special prizes were awarded.
The evening concluded with remarks from MTSU President McPhee, comments from MTSU students, and a short video that highlighted the university.
