[501] Latest ‘MTSU Magazine’ iPad-only edition features grads, gifts, alums

MURFREESBORO — The newest, iPad-only mini-version of MTSU Magazine is sure to keep the university’s growing web and app audiences “in the know” about all things MTSU.

From a photographic look back at the recent Alumni Weekend activities to expert commentary on Cuba, this edition covers a broad swath of topics and perspectives.

Available through the MTSU Magazine app on iTunes, the electronic-only version includes stories with multimedia content that aren’t available in print.

The latest edition includes:

  • A look at MTSU’s May commencement ceremonies, featuring the largest graduating class in school history, speeches by Gov. Bill Haslam and alumnus Pete Fisher (’87), general manager of the Grand Ole Opry, and the first two honorary degrees in MTSU’s 102-year history, given to former U.S. Congressman Bart Gordon and (posthumously) Nobel Prize winner James Buchanan.
  • A look at former Blue Raider baseball players plying their wares professionally this spring.
  • A look at three young scholars who respectively have studied parasites in horse manure, written a new language, and soared to new heights in aerospace research — good examples of the varied student research efforts occurring daily at MTSU.
  • A look at how a retired professor’s donation will give MTSU’s photography collection a new home.

Readers of MTSU Magazine may now download the free mini-version to their iPads or iPhones at
