Clarksville, TN – High school students interested in attending Austin Peay State University will get the opportunity to see the campus first hand and possibly win a $3,000 scholarship during the University’s AP Day on Saturday October 6th.
Students who qualify for unconditional admission to APSU for the Fall 2013 semester are eligible for the scholarship drawing. The submission of their AP Day evaluation form will serve as their ticket for the drawing, and the winner will be announced during that evening’s football game against rival Murray State.AP Day serves as an open house that allows guests to tour the campus and meet with professors and current APSU students. Prospective students and their parents will meet with staff from the Admissions, Financial Aid, Housing/Residence Life, and Student Life and Leadership offices. Students and guests will also hear from APSU administrators, the Student Government Association president and other campus leaders and students.
Check-in for the event is 12:30pm that Saturday in the Foy Fitness and Recreation Center. Signs will direct guests to the center.

Students wishing to attend that day’s football game for free need to request ticket vouchers when they sign up online for AP Day. The scholarship winner will be announced during the game, but students do not need to be present to win.
