October 29 - November 1, 2012 - The finalists will each visit the TSU campus during the week of Oct. 29 - Nov. 1 to meet with a variety of university constituent groups, including faculty and staff, students, alumni and the community. A series of campus forums will take place at the Floyd-Payne Campus Center at TSU. Open receptions for community members, alumni and friends of the university will be scheduled each evening. A detailed schedule for each finalist will be posted here as soon as the schedules are available. The campus forums will be streamed live via a link available here as well.
