MURFREESBORO — Middle Tennessee State University calls it CUSTOMS — MTSU’s summer orientation program for new students, freshmen and transfers.
CUSTOMS shows freshmen the ropes of being an MTSU student. It helps new undergraduate students make the transition into the university; it prepares them for educational opportunities; and it propels them into the intellectual, cultural and social climate of the university.
CUSTOMS sessions gain momentum after Memorial Day. The second of the 11 two-day orientation sessions for freshmen will be held Thursday and Friday, May 29-30. These will be for students who will be majoring in programs in the Colleges of Basic and Applied Sciences and Behavioral and Health Sciences.
CUSTOMS transfer orientations will be held Friday, June 6; Tuesday, June 17; Friday, July 25; Wednesday, Aug. 6; and Tuesday, Aug. 12.
