The Tennessee Board of Regents approved the plan to change Forrest Hall back to the ROTC Building.

Yet, Tennessee Historical Commission still needed to grant a waiver before the name change may take place. 

Forrest Hall, which houses the university's ROTC program, was named for Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate general and early KKK leader.

A panel was created to offer a recommendation about what MTSU should do about the name and the outcries from students to change it.
