MTSU Convocation Invitation
MTSU has invited all BCA students to attend the Convocation held at MTSU on August 23, 2015, at Murphy Center. This is not an Academy requirement as the book may not be appropriate for all levels of high school students. Some of our teachers have attended and enjoyed past convocations at MTSU.
"MTSU's convocation is an exciting and inspiring look at the start of college life. You will see accoutrements that you will not see again until you graduate from college," said Geneva Cook, English IV teacher and Academy Life Experience coordinator.
