NASHVILLE, Tenn. (TSU News Service) – Tennessee State University will be on the digital cutting edge this fall semester when it begins offering electronic books as part of a book-bundle initiative aimed at lowering the cost of traditional “paper” books.
EAGLEVILLE, Tennessee — The MTSU Archaeological Field School has taken the classroom outdoors for the last six weeks, keeping students hoping for breezes and wearing extra sunscreen as they dig and learn at a site in the rolling hills of western Rutherford County.
At a special event June 24 at the Magnolia Valley property near Eagleville, about 20 miles west of the MTSU campus, Dr. Tanya Peres, an associate professor of anthropology at MTSU, and her students welcomed more guests to learn about the field school and even try a bit of digging themselves.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (TSU News Service) –The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has selected Tennessee State University for a program that will actively engage its students in initiatives that protect local residents from toxic air releases.
A release from the agency named TSU and five other institutions nationwide as “academic partners” for the 2014 Toxic Release Inventory University Challenge. The Challenge is designed to find innovative ways to increase public awareness of industrial release of toxic chemicals in communities around the country.
In a mere three weeks, some MTSU students have transformed a national historic site.
Their three-week field school took place May 10-31 on Georgia’s Jekyll Island, where the multimillionaire magnates of America’s Gilded Age created a retreat fit for royalty.
The 13 graduate students of MTSU’s Current Issues of Public Policy Practice class were hardly on site to lounge around, however.
For almost three decades, the Governor’s School for the Arts has nurtured the “creative spark” of young Tennesseans with a love for music, theatre, visual arts, dance and filmmaking.
As the program kicked off its 30th anniversary this week at MTSU, the man who founded the statewide summer programs for gifted high schoolers said his goal remains the same for each participant: “aim for the top.”
