[497] MT Sampler Camp gives youth a glimpse of college offerings

MURFREESBORO — What do you want to be when you grow up?

Middle school students from across the region beginning to think about college and careers experienced a variety of MTSU offerings during the MT Sampler Camp June 8-12.

Camp Director Nancy Stubblefield, an adviser in the College of Mass Communication, arranged for the more than 20 middle schoolers to taste segments of business, horse science, chemistry and physics, education, art and much more during the weeklong camp.

One three-pronged field trip off-campus June 9 included visits to MTSU aerospace facilities at Murfreesboro Airport just off Memorial Boulevard, the Horse Science Center and the Tennessee Miller Coliseum on West Thompson Lane and the MTSU Farm and Dairy on Guy James Road in Lascassas, Tennessee.

The June 22-26 MT Sampler Camp for high school students is full with 40 students registered.

To inquire about the 2016 MT Sampler Camp, look for information to become available at www.mtsu.edu/sampler or contact Stubblefield at Nancy.Stubblefield@mtsu.edu.

For now, she plans to hold one camp in 2016 that will be for rising eighth- through 11th-graders.
