MURFREESBORO -- The MTSU Honors College, Office of Admissions and various departments across campus are collaborating for the annual Presidents' Day Open House.
The daylong event is scheduled for Presidents' Day, Monday, Feb. 19, for high school and transfer students across the region and beyond.
The Honors College offers personalized teaching, smaller classes and a competitive edge in a more interactive learning environment for high-ability scholars.
Attendees can take advantage of the opportunity to meet people who can answer questions and show them the campus and its academic departments while also meeting current honors students, financial aid and scholarship staff and academic advisers.

"The open house is designed to help prospective students learn more about the Honors College by offering educational and fun events," said staff member Laura Clippard. "We have many Honors students volunteering so students can speak directly with them about their experiences. The Honors College offers a small learning environment with the greater resources of MTSU."
Information sessions and optional tours and activities highlight the day for guests considering MTSU and the Honors College. The opportunities include mock trial, "mad science" and School of Music presentations.
