History

In 1909, the Tennessee Legislature enacted the General Education Bill. This bill stated that three colleges be established within each grand division of the state (Modern-day ETSU, MTSU, and University of Memphis) and one additional school for African American students (TSU). These schools would be founded in 1911. Originally known as the Middle Tennessee Normal School, it became a state college in 1943 and became known as Middle Tennessee State College. The school garnered university status in 1965 and changed its name to Middle Tennessee State University accordingly. The Grand Divisions are geographic, cultural, and legally recognized regions each compromising a third of the State of Tennessee. ... East Tennessee State University (abbreviated ETSU) was founded on October 2, 1911. ... The University of Memphis is an American public research university located in the Normal Station neighborhood of Memphis, Tennessee, United States, and is the flagship public research university of the Tennessee Board of Regents system. ... An African American (also Afro-American, Black American, or simply black) is a member of an ethnic group in the United States whose ancestors, usually in predominant part, were indigenous to Africa. ... Tennessee State University (TSU) is a comprehensive, urban, coeducational land-grant university founded in 1912. ... A normal school or teachers college is an educational institution for training teachers. ... For other uses, see College (disambiguation). ...

MTSU is closely identified with this "slanted M" logo, which was commissioned in the 1970s. It has gradually been disappearing from university publications and signage since 2002, and replaced by the university's wordmark. This logo still appears on one of MTSU's most prominent signs, at the northwest corner of campus.[5]

Enrollment

As of September 2007, MTSU has the state's largest undergraduate student body with 20,899 students.[1] Much of the student body comes from within a 50 miles (80 km) radius of campus. September 2007 is the ninth month of that year. ...


MTSU's focus in recent years has been on growth, but the university is quickly outgrowing its infrastructure. With the 2004 advent of the Tennessee Lottery (which provides college scholarships to Tennessee students attending in-state schools), more students than ever have the financial resources to attend MTSU. The current administration seeks to curb growth by raising admission standards and delegating remedial study programs to 2-year community colleges within the Tennessee Board of Regents system. The Tennessee Lottery is run by the state of Tennessee. ... The Tennessee Board of Regents as currently constituted is authorized by an act of the Tennessee General Assembly passed in 1972. ...


MTSU classifies itself as a regional university, and primarily draws its student base from the areas surrounding Nashville and Murfreesboro. As the school has grown larger, its student base has expanded. The Aerospace and Recording Industry programs regularly draw students from outside the state of Tennessee. Most other programs primarily draw students from inside the state.


Only 3,500 students (approximately 15% of enrollment) live in on-campus dormitories, though the landscape surrounding the university has many apartments marketed toward students. It is estimated another 35-40% of students rent residential space within the city of Murfreesboro.


MTSU holds two graduation ceremonies each spring and autumn, and one each summer (a total of three classes each year). The spring and autumn commencements are split into two ceremonies to accommodate the large number of graduates (an average of 1,600 per class) and their families wishing to attend. The ceremonies are held in the 10,000-seat Monte Hale Arena inside the Charles M. Murphy Athletic Center.


Admission Standards

Guaranteed Admission

The majority of freshman applicants are admitted in the Standard Admission category. In addition to completion of the required high school courses, applicants must present one of the following:

  • a minimum 3.0 GPA
  • a minimum composite ACT of 22 (SAT of 1020)
  • a minimum 2.7 GPA and minimum ACT of 19 (SAT of 900)
  • satisfy the NCAA standards for student athletes who are qualifiers or partial qualifiers under Division I guidelines

Honors College Admission

Students admitted into the Honors College may choose to register for special Honors courses or Honors sections of general studies classes. They may also choose to participate in the Honors Student Association and related extracurricular activities. However, participation in the Honors College is not required of applicants admitted in this category.

  • a minimum 3.5 GPA and a minimum composite ACT of 25 (SAT of 1160)
  • a minimum 3.25 GPA (for transfer students)

Conditional Admission

Any student not meeting guaranteed admission requirements will be considered for conditional admission. The review will include all academic credentials as well as other special interests and skills, and other non-academic factors as explained on the Personal Statement Form. Students admitted in this category will be expected to:

  • remove high school deficiencies (if applicable) within the first 64 hours of enrollment
  • maintain academic good standing as defined by University retention standards
  • receive services from the University's Academic Support Center
  • enroll in University 1010 the first semester of enrollment

Academics

MTSU was founded on its education program, and it remains one of the highest-enrolled programs at the university. Nursing and agriscience, also staples among Tennessee universities, were also a large part of the school's early identity and continue to be strong programs today. In recent years, MTSU has become known for its newer programs, including Aerospace, Journalism, Broadcasting, and Recording Industry.


MTSU is divided into seven colleges:

  • College of Basic and Applied Sciences
  • College of Education and Behavioral Science
  • College of Graduate Studies
  • College of Liberal Arts
  • College of Mass Communication
  • Jennings A. Jones College of Business
  • University Honors College

Eight Bachelor degrees are offered:

  • Arts
  • Business Administration
  • Fine Arts
  • Music
  • Science
  • Science in Nursing
  • Social Work
  • University Studies

The College of Graduate Studies confers Master's degrees in nine areas, the Specialist in Education degree, and the Doctor of Arts degree. MTSU's first Ph.D. was awarded in May 2003, though the university had awarded many Doctor of Arts degrees in the past.


Middle Tennessee State University employs approximately 900 full-time faculty members.


Department of Recording Industry

The Department of Recording Industry (part of the College of Mass Communication, and commonly referred to by the acronym "RIM" for its former name "Recording Industry Management") is the university's most popular program. Due to the popularity of the program, students must apply for candidacy, which constitutes acceptance into the program. Before they can apply for candidacy, students must complete prerequisite "core courses". Every semester, only a limited number of slots are opened for new candidates. Eighty-five percent of these slots are awarded on the basis of a score which is determined by a formula that considers cumulative GPA, the required mathematics course grade, the GPA from the core courses, and the total hours earned. This system insures that the most highly motivated students enter the program, and confers a certain degree of exclusivity.


The RIM program is divided into two concentrations, 'Music Business', and 'Production & Technology'. Students must choose either one for their major. Music business focuses on the marketing, management, and business aspect of the recording, touring, and publishing industries. The Production and Technology concentration focuses on the techniques of recording, mixing, mastering, and specific technological trends of the industry.


The Pro/Tech side of the department boasts a number of studios and labs available exclusive for student course work. Studio A, and B, as well as the Mastering Lab, Post Production, MIDI Lab, and Maintenance are located in the Bragg Mass Comm building. Studio C is located in a basement in the James Union Building, and Studios D & E are located in two renovated Ezell former dorm rooms. A Pro Tools Lab is located in the basement of the Alumni Memorial Gym.


The Audio Engineering Society (AES) plays a significant role in the social networking for Pro/Tech students. Through seminars, meetings, and visits to Nashville studios many students find collaborative projects and potential employment for their post-graduation job search.


The school's close proximity to Nashville, a mecca for music recording, provides resources for this department, which is regularly recognized as one of the best the nation has to offer. It competes for students with Belmont University, a small private Christian university located in the heart of Nashville's Music Row district, which also offers a critically-acclaimed Recording Industry program but is more known for its music business program than its technological recording program. Competitors of the Pro/Tech side are SAE, Full Sail, Berklee, and the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. Belmont University is a private, coeducational, liberal arts university located in Nashville, Tennessee. ... For other uses, see Christian (disambiguation). ... Music Row is an area just to the southwest of Downtown Nashville, Tennessee that is home to hundreds of businesses related to the country music, gospel music, and Christian music industries. ...


Although the RIM department has exceptional credibility and prestige, there are some criticisms. Students[who?] often complain about the draconian candidacy rules that have been implemented in order to only allow the most qualified applicants. Another chief complaint of the Pro/Tech side[who?] is the limited course sections available in the upper division elective courses. Due to small class sizes and limited facility time, only a specific number of students can take the upper division courses per semester. This has caused a backlog of students waiting to graduate[citation needed]. Criticisms from the Industry itself[who?] are not based upon the quality of the program, but yet the quantity of the students graduated each semester. Many[who?] are of the opinion that the Industry cannot support jobs or viable sources of income for the majority of the students who earn a RIM degree.


Department of Aerospace

The Department of Aerospace has a working agreement with the single-runway Murfreesboro Airport to provide many of its classes on-site. A decommissioned Boeing 727 airliner donated by FedEx is housed at the airport as a teaching tool.[6] Though no longer considered air-worthy, its engines remain functional, and can be restarted for training purposes. American Airlines has also donated a 727 cockpit procedure trainer to MTSU, which allows students to receive their flight engineer rating.[7] It is housed in the Business & Aerospace Building near the center of campus. The Boeing 727 is a mid-size, narrow-body, three-engine commercial jet airliner. ... Federal Express redirects here. ... American Airlines, Inc. ...


Concrete Industry Management

The Concrete Industry Management program is a four year bachelor of science degree offered through the Engineering Technology and Industrial department in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences. CIM develops graduates that are broadly educated with technical knowledge in addition to a solid business background. Known for its close industry ties and very high job placement rates, CIM has become the fastest growing major on campus and boasts around 300 students. It was started in 1996 by industry professionals and companies to meet the demand for educated professionals in an expanding and changing industry. CIM at MTSU was the first of its kind in the country as other CIM programs have recently started as Arizona State and New Jersey Institute of Technology due to the immense success at MTSU.

Campus information

The campus, set on 466 acres (1.9 km²), features 109 permanent buildings with 3.8 million square feet (353,000 m²) of space. It is located one mile (1.6 km) from the geographic center of Tennessee, and 1.3 miles (2 km) east of downtown Murfreesboro. The campus is largely devoid of hills, much like the landscape that makes up much of Murfreesboro (the mountains of the Highland Rim are only a few miles to the southeast). The oldest building on campus, Kirksey Old Main, lies at the north end of the original quadrangle. Flanking it to the west are Rutledge Hall (a dormitory), the James Union Building (student life and extra administration offices), and Lyon and Monohan Halls (also dormitories). Flanking to the east are Jones Hall (now an office building), Todd Hall (the former library, which recently underwent major renovations and is now home to the Art Department), Wiser-Patten Science Hall/Davis Science Building, and Smith Hall (a men's dormitory). These are the key original buildings on campus and form its historic core. Between these buildings are Peck Hall, (English and History departments), Walnut Grove, and Cope Administration Building. Further east are newer additions, such as the Keathley University Center (KUC), Photography Building, Ned McWherter Learning Resources Center, John Bragg Mass Communications Building, James Walker University Library, Business and Aerospace Building, Campus Recreation Center, and the campus's newest building, the Paul W. Martin, Sr. Honors College. The Highland Rim is a geographic term for the area in Tennessee surrounding the Central Basin. ...

In the early 2000s, eight fraternities moved from off-campus sites to the university's state-of-the-art Greek Row, located on the extreme eastern side of campus (a few other fraternities remain off-campus). Since then, two fraternities have had their charters revoked and banned from campus. The latest of these two incidents occurred in December 2006 when the Theta Iota Chapter of the Sigma Nu fraternity had their charter revoked after incidents of illegal activity and hazing, including: underaged drinking, personal servitude, pledges being kidnapped, psychological shock, and humiliation. Since then the fraternity has successfully appealed the headquarters decision and may become a colony.[citation needed] Sorority houses at public universities in Tennessee were disallowed per a perceived prohibition in Tennessee state law discouraging sorority houses based on the notion that more than eight women living in the same house would constitute a brothel. This law was never questioned until 2003, when the Tennessee General Assembly passed a resolution clearing the myth when it determined there was indeed no statute prohibiting sorority houses. To this date, no sorority houses have opened on MTSU's campus. The terms fraternity and sorority (from the Latin words and , meaning brother and sister respectively) may be used to describe many social and charitable organizations, for example the Lions Club, Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Rotary International, Optimist International, or the Shriners. ...

All buildings on campus are given 2, 3, or 4 letter abbreviations, which most people use to identify the buildings. For example, the Keathley University Center is known as "the K.U.C."; the Business and Aerospace Building is better known as "the B.A.S."; Kirksey Old Main is better known as "K.O.M."; and the James Union Building is called "the J.U.B." Some buildings, however, are not referred to by their abbreviations. For example, Cope Administration Building (CAB) is commonly just called "Cope", John Bragg Mass Communications Building (COMM) is called "Mass Comm", and most students opt to call Peck Hall (PH) by its full name.


The campus takes the general shape of a rectangle and is largely cut off to automobile traffic. Its borders, however, are generally defined by four high-traffic Murfreesboro thoroughfares:

  • On the west: Middle Tennessee Blvd.
  • On the south: E Main St.
  • On the east: N Rutherford Blvd.
  • On the north: Greenland Dr.

In recent years, however, MTSU has been buying property and buildings on the other sides of these four streets. Most of these buildings are former churches and houses, and are used primarily as office space, though a few classes may take place in these buildings. Some of the buildings have been demolished and replaced with campus parking lots.


MTSU has recently been linked directly to Interstate 24 for the first time. Middle Tennessee Boulevard has been widened to four lanes between Old Salem Road and campus, and was extended to include its own interchange on Interstate 24 between U.S. Route 231 (Church St.) and Tennessee State Route 96 (Old Fort Pkwy). Wikimedia Commons has media related to: Interstate 24 Interstate 24 (abbreviated I-24) is an interstate highway in the eastern United States. ... U.S. Highway 231 is a spur of U.S. Highway 31. ... State Route 96 is a long east-west highway in Middle Tennessee. ...


Middle Tennessee State University has no auxiliary campuses, and aside from online courses, all classes are held either on-campus or at adequate facilities in the city of Murfreesboro.


MTSU is only a half-mile (800 m) east of the nearest hospital, privately-owned Middle Tennessee Medical Center, located on East Bell St. The hospital will move to a new building across town in 2010.[8]

Nickname

Its nickname is the Blue Raiders. Women's teams were historically known as the Lady Raiders, but in 2007-08 adopted the Blue Raiders nickname. The nickname's origin goes back to a 1934 newspaper contest. An MTSU football player, Charles Sarver, won $5 from The (Murfreesboro) Daily News Journal with his winning entry "Blue Raiders", which he later admitted borrowing from Colgate University, whose teams were known as "Red Raiders" at the time. No official nickname existed prior to 1934, when teams were called "Normalites," "Teachers," and "Pedagogues".[2] Contrary to popular belief, the "Blue Raiders" nickname is not related to the American Civil War, in which Union soldiers, wearing blue, raided Murfreesboro in 1863 on their way to the Battle of Stones River. Colgate University is a highly selective, private liberal arts college located in the Village of Hamilton in Madison County, New York, USA. It was founded in 1819 as a Baptist seminary, but has since become non-denominational. ...

The university's athletic teams simply refer to the school as "Middle Tennessee" or "MT", abandoning the words "State University". This is being done to save another logo change should the university change its name to "University of Middle Tennessee", as has been long-rumored.

Mascot

MTSU's mascot is a blue winged horse named "Lightning," adopted as the mascot in 1998, when the athletics department updated its image in preparation for the 1999 upgrade to Division I-A football and subsequent transfer to the Sun Belt Conference [3]. Lightning symbolizes the university's aerospace program and the region's heritage in the walking horse industry. It also symbolized the university "taking flight" as part of its "Soarin' To The Sun" public relations campaign when the school joined the Sun Belt.

MTSU's original mascot was a student dressed as Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate General who was a pioneer in "mobile warfare". At an 1867 Ku Klux Klan convention in Nashville Forrest was named the organization's honorary Grand Wizard, or leader-in-chief. His involvement was determined in an 1868 Congressional investigation to be limited to trying to disband the Klan.[10] Despite this, the mascot was changed to a blue-colored scent hound dog named "Ole Blue" in the 1970s due to sensitivities within the African American community. "Ole Blue" still appears on the basketball arena's video screen from time to time during games. For the World War II general, see Nathan Bedford Forrest III.
