MTSU Merit Badge University

Special Weather Policy - Rain

As you may be aware, Middle Tennessee is being hit with heavy rainfall this week. Please bring appropriate rain gear: umbrellas, jackets, boots, etc.

In case of severe weather, MBU may be cancelled and notifications will be made via this website and emails to registered units. Due to limited availability of facilities, we do not have a "snow day" scheduled.

Open spots are available: first come, first serve on Saturday!

  • Citizenship in the World: 2 spots
  • Communications: 1 spot

MBU 2019 - Saturday, February 23

This is a GREAT opportunity for Scouts to earn that one Eagle required that has slipped passed them, or to get a First Class Scout a nudge to Life.  We provide food on campus at Corlew Dining Hall and a patch for your experience.  We hope that you will join us in February!

Please put your unit number in the subject line of all correspondence. Thanks!

Construction alert: Middle Tennessee is under construction from Main Street to Greenland Drive. Please allow an extra 15-30 minutes in your arrival time to compensate for the extra navigation in driving.

Please be advised, that some of the merit badges have different age requirements and restrictions:

  • Environmental Science Scouts must be 14 years of age.
  • All other Scouts must be over the age of 13 or First Class.
  • Aviation requires transportation to the Airport and the parent to stay there all day.  Pizza is offered to the scouts and parents.  Parents are not required to pay MBU fee if Scout is taking Aviation.
