The preview day starts at 8 a.m., but participants can arrive as early as 7:30 to check in inside the Student Union on the east side of campus. To find parking and MTSU buildings, a printable campus map is available at

The preview day is scheduled to end at 3 p.m., but participants are welcome to purchase tickets to attend the MTSU-BYU football game, which has a 2:30 p.m. kickoff in Floyd Stadium.

It’s going to be a beautiful day to be on the MTSU campus,” said Laurie Witherow, associate vice provost for Admissions and Enrollment Services. “Later in the afternoon, the whole campus will be a buzz of activity getting ready for the football game, but the morning and early afternoon will be devoted to showing off all of the great academic programs and co-curricular activities MTSU has to offer.”

Campus and housing tours and academic sessions will be available throughout the day. Student Affairs and academic staff will be available to answer questions from prospective students and their parents. Lunch vouchers will be provided to more than 330 students registered for the event.

The preview day will be the last big recruiting event on campus before the Dec. 1 deadline for priority consideration for our scholarships Witherow added.
