What It Means to Be True Blue
MTSU is a community committed to learning, growth, and service. We hold these values dear, and there’s a simple phrase that conveys them: “I am True Blue.” New students at convocation take the True Blue Pledge. It underscores our core values of honesty and integrity; respect for diversity; engagement in the community; and committing to reason, not violence. These words express not only the ideals the University wishes to share with its students but also our devotion to student success.
