Area high school students, their parents and families are invited to attend the upcoming Rutherford County College Night — one of the first college recruiting fairs in the Middle Tennessee region this fall.

The event, hosted by MTSU, features nearly 60 colleges and universities from across the Southeast. It will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, in the Student Union Ballroom, 1768 MTSU Blvd., on the MTSU campus in Murfreesboro. For general information, visit

People planning to attend should park in the Rutherford lot off Rutherford Boulevard on the east side of campus. A tent with Blue Elite Tour Guides will be on-site, assisting visitors.

Operating from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., shuttles will transport visitors to the Student Union Building and return them when they leave. To find parking and building location, a printable campus map is available at

Public, private and homeschool students from Rutherford and surrounding counties are welcome to attend the free event.

There also is no cost for students or their parents to register online through the automated system at

After registering, the student will be provided a printable barcode or one that can be utilized from their phone. This will allow college recruiters to scan the student’s barcode and instantly receive all necessary information.

Joey Clark, a senior recruiter in the MTSU Office of Admissions, said the barcode method takes the place of contact cards and saves students and their parents’ time.

“It allows students to optimize their face-to-face time with recruiters,” Clark added.

Along with MTSU personnel manning 15 tables, dozens of colleges and universities will send representatives in their effort to recruit students for the 2018-19 academic year and beyond.

“We have an excellent number of other colleges and universities joining us at MTSU for this event,” Clark said.
