It's no secret that the campus visit is the best way for a high school student to determine if he/she is a good “fit” with a college or university, but sometimes a visit isn't possible, so…Austin Peay State University is coming to you!

Beginning Jan. 23 in Nashville and wrapping up Feb. 20 in Knoxvillewith many stops in betweenthe APSU Road Show is coming to a location near you.

Set up like a college fair, the Road Show will offer high school students and parents the opportunity to visit various “booths” to ask questions and gather information in a casual setting.

Each Road Show will have separate tables with staff from the offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Housing and Residence Life, Student Life and Leadership, Enrollment Management and Academic Support, the Honors Program and the Career Advisement Center.

There will be a table set up just to provide details about the Freshman Experience, a unique “course” in which all incoming freshman must participate. Current APSU students as well as APSU alumni from the area also will be on hand to answer questions and discuss their own experiences as an Austin Peay student.

A light buffet will be provided, and each high school student will be given a “goodie bag” filled with Austin Peay logo items, including a Road Show T-shirt.

Each Road Show will be held from 6-8 p.m. as listed below:
