MTSU’s College of Mass Communication is giving the university community unprecedented access Wednesday, Oct. 8, to the co-founders and organizers of one of music’s largest and most popular events: the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The daylong seminar, which is open to the public, will feature Bonnaroo co-founders Ashley Capps and Rick Farman and the festival’s entire management team to discuss all aspects of the internationally acclaimed festival — from its business model, planning, marketing and media to its community spirit, volunteerism, music and programming.
Networking, brainstorming and the presentation of awards will be just some of the facets of this year’s Women in Higher Education in Tennessee (WHET) conference at MTSU.
“College Completion: Women in Higher Education Moving the Needle” is the theme of the 34th annual gathering, which is slated for Oct. 9-10 in the Student Union.
Dr. MaryLou Apple, president of Motlow State Community College and presidential adviser to WHET, will lead a panel discussion titled “Leadership and College Completion” from 3 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9.
