“We love to organize events that are family friendly and fun for our alumni, friends and families,” said Paul Wydra, MTSU Alumni Relations assistant director

“We have had great past success with these events, and this year we were able to add Dollywood Splash Country as well, and the savings from a buying-at-the-door ticket is great,” he added. “Last year we had 175 people at our Nashville Sounds event and more than 50 at Nashville Shores, so we are happy that people love to take advantage of these great opportunities.”
