Murfreesboro Colleges and Schools

Murfreesboro, Tennessee, has more than might be imagined when it comes to fun, adventure and living.

During the warmer months, you can find live concert on Fridays downtown, as well as unique places to dine and shop. In fact, students at Murfreesboro colleges and schools might be surprised at all there is to do in this city, which is located just 40 miles southeast of Nashville.
