Tennessee colleges stepping up efforts to recruit students

NASHVILLE (AP) - Smaller colleges are stepping up their efforts to recruit in-state students to their campuses.

University of Tennessee-Chattanooga is becoming the college of choice for midstate high school students while Middle Tennessee State University is getting a closer look from high school students in the east and west parts of the state, The Nashville Ledger reports.

MTSU administrator Debra Sells said the school has nearly doubled its staff in an effort to recruit students from across the state.

Hillsboro High School student counselor Allie Bateman says UTC is starting to come up more in her conversations with students.

She says both schools have good programs.
