4 College Freshman

Facilities: The atheletic center is great. You have a number of options to choose from when it comes to working out, going for a swim or playing Tennis. The Library could use more computers being that it always gets super full. Campus Activities is pretty good. Much involvment from students and we get tonsssssss of free t-shirts.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: During the fall and spring season, it is really nice. Everybody hangs outside and a lot of events are happening. During the winter time, it will either snow a lot or not snow at all. But it does get freezing cold. You will experience tornado storms because we do live in a tornado alley. But since the time I have been up here, nothing bad has happen. Just bad storms at time. Overall good weather.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not a Party School – This school is not much of a party school. The school throws some parties but its to celebrate student achievement. There are some parties that fraternities have and some clubs would have college parties. Again this school is not consider a party school.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student Involvement – The athletics at the school are very active and have several events for fans. There is a lot of school spirits. Even have several groups and clubs that is specifically to support the teams.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food offered at school is more expensive that other places around town. The dining halls are acceptable but the serve the same things and they are not always the best! I would advise to have a meal plan and plus dollars, but they will not be as much of use after freshman year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've got really nothing to complain about except for the fact that it takes forever to get a work order done.
They built a new dorm, and it's huge! But it's also alllll the way across campus, right on the far edge. Really bothersome to go all the way out there.
They have freshman only dorms and that's pretty much the majority of the dorms right there.
I live in Blount this year, freshman only. It's right in the middle of campus, which I REALLY like. I'm just worried there won't be enough space for me in the next few years.

Campus Dining: Pretty Nice Place to Be. It's a really nice place. The campus is pretty, the people are nice, and the teachers seem to really take an interest in their students. The only issue I have is with their online class system and the smell of the dirty river...
The classes online never really work because the site is always going down.
There's been a few cases of food poisoning, suspected to come from the cafeteria, but never actually proved...
The coffee shop is good, and we've got a brand new Starbucks this semester, not to mention the new Subway we got last semester.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There Are Teams Available – I really do not have time for sports when all my time is consumed with my studies. There is a nice place for students to go to and excercise if a sports team is not an option.

3 College Junior

Computers: There is often a battle to get on a computer when it is necessary to use because of the unavailability. There is alot of double entering of passwords and a continuance of approving to show all content when trying to move around in D2L.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: It's Predominately White & Black. Stores & Restaurants Close Too Early – I often here students gossip in uneducated, unethical, and sometimes racist communications. The university needs more diversity since conservatism is a dominate belief against homosexuality, pressure of marriage, favoritism to those who follow the main stream belief, married females preferred by professionals rather than single mothers. There is alot of ethical preaching but not practicing. This has been my experience and only regarding the Euro-American students and faculty.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I <3 APSU – I love the professors in the Communications department! They make it so easy to enjoy my time on campus. Not only are they knowledgeable, but they are so eager to better us students. If I could nominate them all for an educator of the year award, I most certainly would! Our school is pretty typical for a large campus, but we are so involved with different business and programs in other towns such as Nashville, and even other countries, such as Sweden! I would definitely choose APSU all over again; I actually transferred here after my freshman year, and it was the best thing I could have done. I wanted to be close to Nashville, but without the HUGE city life yet. APSU allows me to be close to Nashville, still have a decently large town to explore and live in, and help me merge into that big city life. GO GOVS!

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs at APSU – I have never seen anyone with drugs on campus, or alcohol for that matter. Not to say they couldn't be concealed, but for the majority of my time on campus I've never seen drugs. There a couple homeless people who constantly walk around campus drunk, I've even had a homeless guy yell "hey girl, come 'ereeee" at me, and it really freaked me out. I always see the same ones, so that tells me the campus/off campus police aren't really doing anything about that issue.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: APSU's Campus Security – There have been several crimes on campus, and the university is pretty much surrounded by the worst neighborhoods in Clarksville. I know that campus security does the best they can with this issue, but it definitely turns me away from taking night classes because I'm scared for my life to be anywhere near there when night falls. Also, the campus police and their parking policies are pathetic. APSU keeps admitting more and more students, especially commuters, and there is rarely any parking. Even if you have a legitimate reason for parking in a spot that's not necessarily available to you, they are completely unwilling to work with you; not only that, but a lot of the parking rules aren't clear, which leads to confusion and tickets. They need to get it together.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Ok so I wanted to be Greek, I'm young, but a veteran, and ROTC cadet. That being said I'm professional and won't be treated otherwise, I'm a full time dad and non trad student, actively involved and idk I never went greek because of some of the neg. Stigma the cost as well asnthe time it took

Off-Campus Dining: There is a strip close not even 5 miles and then well we're right by down town too so idk I think itsmgreat

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I know over weight people are a problem, ok fine, however I'm paying f a meal and in the ROTC program and would like to get more than 2 strips of bacon which I'm always given flack for. Problem is at the end of each meal and they always over cook because they don't want to run out but then again can't re serve it, so it gets thrown away. Homeless people would kill for that trash or what we call trash, something should be done, yet I pay for it to be thrown away and can't even get 4 or 5 slices? Something's wrong here

3 College Freshman

Parking: Could Be Worse – Parking is pretty convenient but you better get here early or you will wind up parking halfway around the world especially if you live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: More Than Safe – I have never had an issue on campus. There is always campus police roaming around. If I was ever in danger, I am confident that there are plenty of emergency phones set up around campus that I would be able to get help quickly.

3 College Student

Transportation: City Bus – transportation is good. you can take the city bus to get to the college and there is also a bus that picks up students who are parked far away. parking is not the greatest. there is a few large lots but the school keeps growing and the parking doesnt.

College Student

Academics: Why I Chose This College – I am going to go to APSU because I have prior experience with this school. I had attended middle college at the school. I feel very comfortable and knowlegable coming to this school to recieve a english degree. It is a small university where I feel I can recieve any help if I need it and I will not feel like just a number in the class room.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Large Car Commuter Body – Most students at APSU are commuters. At the beginning of every semester it's a parking disaster because they never seem to have enough spaces for the students. However, once the semester is in full swing it's easier. Another plus is parking passes are free!

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: Don't Walk Around Alone at Night. During the day Austin Peay is a wonderful campus and I have never felt threatened. However, there have been instances of assault on women, usually after 9 p.m. and the campus is very close to public housing. If ever your walking around at night, take someone with you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not Really Mush to Live in – The housing options at Austin Peay State university are below average. For the price of a dorm room for a school year, one could easily attain an apartment off-campus. But, with the option of living on campus, it is extremely easier to get to the dining hall, library, and classes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Clarskville Is Average – Dining near campus is quite undesirable. Mostly, Austin Peay State University has resturants nearby like Taco Bell, Sonic, and McDonald's. There's nothing really exceptional. Although, there is one place that is a Clarksville must. This place can get pricey, but they have a dish that is worth it. The beer cheese dip at the Blackhorse Pub and Brewery is worth the price. With the right comrades, the experiences are endless.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Freshman Year – In my opinion, this school is awesome! the food is great, most of the professors are down to earth and there is always something going on.
