See yourself at Austin Peay 

Why should you choose Austin Peay? Come experience a day in the life of a Gov at Govs Preview Day and find out.

Govs Preview Day is a Saturday event that you can think of as an "open house" for the university. At Govs Preview Day you will learn about applying to the university and our financial aid and scholarship process, engage with Austin Peay students about life on campus, and explore your academic area of interest. You'll meet faculty in your program and tour our amazing facilities. Also, you'll get an in-depth look at student life on campus which includes getting a glimpse of all of our freshman residence halls.
