MTSU students often toil one or more semesters — and sometimes year-round — to be part of the annual Scholars Week, which will be held March 18-22 across the MTSU campus.
MTSU Scholars Week is an annual weeklong celebration of research, scholarship, and creative projects.
All events are free and open to the public. To find parking and campus buildings, a printable campus map is available at http://tinyurl.com/MTParkingMap.
