4 College Freshman

Academics: Get-To-Know-You Professors – I came to school here to be able to study Latin and English. I signed up for Greek because I heard the professor was great. I have loved nearly every professor I've had. They are available to help and get to know their students well. Class size is small to medium for most classes, so you never feel left out.

Campus Strictness: Policies Are Serious – You do not want to get caught drinking on campus. If you get caught, you will be on suspension. On the second time, you will be kicked out of the school. The administration tries to keep it a dry campus.

Campus Housing: New Dorms Are Taking Over – I personally do not live on campus, but I have stayed over night in the new freshman dorms. They are really nice and almost like hotel rooms without carpet. There is more construction going on, though, because APSU is completely redesigning the layout of dorms. I am pretty sure that these new dorms will be nice too.

Campus Dining: Great but Not the Best – The food at APSU is not bad at all. There is a wide variety of foods, along with a buffet and other food services around the campus. I'd have to say that I have always enjoyed the food.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not sure, but suspect it's present. Lots of alcohol parties at my off campus apartment complex. No peer pressure, most of my friends don't partake.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Good overall. campus is very well landscaped and maintained. Good athletic facilities for non-athletes.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safe Campus – I feel safe while on campus and have had no bad experiences.

Weather: In Tennessee, snow is something. It never gets over a few inches, and barely makes it to one every year. The only bad thing about snow is that it's coming later and later in the school year; it usually snows in the early spring and throws everything off. Missing classes, though it seems great at the time, really messes you up when midterms come around. The only hassling weather around campus besides slick roads and ice when it snows, is the rain. When it rains it pours, and when it pours, giant puddles appear. One street, Drane street, gets so flooded during bad rain that the campus police have to block it off so no one will drive through it. My first year here it got so deep in the middle of the street, it came up to my thighs! This is dramatic and doesn't happen all too often of course, but a good pair of rainboots and an umbrella is a must have for this campus. Puddles will swallow your precious canvas shoes and sneakers!

Computers: Time Yourself Well! The computers here at APSU are pretty decent and work well--printing is free in the library and other spots around campus save for the printing services area located in the basement; they charge if you're printing there but that's only because they work on posters and such. The library is the place with the most computers and the main hubb for homework. It gets pretty crowded inbetween class times, when people are rushing to print papers or research material last minute, and they're also busy during midterms, finals, and registration for new classes. There's also labs located in many of our buildings, I spend most of my time in the mac lab in the art building so I can use their up to date Adobe programs such as Photoshop. The computers in the music building all have Finale and other helpful things like keyboards underneath every desk. Many of the buildings have macs as the standard classroom computer, and fast internet. Wifi is iffy, some days it works, some days it doesn't, but overall it works well when it's on! My connection with my personal computer works well in my dorm, though it breaks up in our living room. Not having a computer won't kill you though, for as I've stated above, there's plenty around campus to use, even if the library's full!

Academics: Austin Peay Is Great! I'm a student at Austin Peay State University here in Clarksville, TN. I am an art education major, and I'm in my third year of classes. Because it took me a while to come to a decision on my major, I'll most likely have to stay here an extra year, ending with an extra semester of student teaching. The professors here in the art department are amazingly talented, and know a lot about their field. We have a variety of artists as professors; photographers--both digital and traditional, printmakers, graphic designers, collage artists, painters, sculptors, ect. They are all very helpful and make themselves as available as possible to help students when they need it. The environment within the art department is the best! Being an art major means a lot of time in the studio, there for living in the Trahern art building, thus everyone gets to know each other pretty well and everyone is always ready to help one another. And when I decided to switch to art education the professor welcomed me with open arms and encouraged me to stick with it, letting me know that she has an amazing placement rate so I don't have to worry so much about finding a job once I graduate. I wouldn't want to change my time here if I could, I've had good and bad experiences but overall they've helped me grow into my own person. Definitely look into coming here if you're needed a cheaper alternative to art school! It's worth it! It's nice, small, and quite here at APSU.

Overall Experience: I hate it. a greek and military school. if you arent one of those you are a nobody.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather of Clarksville, Tennessee is so bipolar. It will be warm one day and freezing the next. It rains at least once a week so you better own some rainboots. I wish it would stay one temperature for more than one day, because I never know if i will need a jacket or not.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not Very Strict – This school is not very strict on anything except for drug and alcohol use. The only way you can get in trouble is if you are being obvious and get caught with it. The dorm rules really aren't a big deal and there's easy ways to get around alot of the rules. Class attendance is mandatory and a grade for very few classes. You are treated like an adult here.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: At Austin Peay State University, I have never seen so much diversity in my life. There's so many different races here it's impossible not to notice, there's also alot of different races living together in the dorms, intermingling everyone together. There's people from all over meaning very different economic situations all over. There's a gay-straight alliance on campus to bring together the different sexually oriented individuals and there is also alot of different groups and organizations to join if you want to meet others with your same religious or political beliefs. This is such a diverse campus for every situation.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are several different options for living off campus at APSU. Lots of them are cheaper than living on campus, but there are others that are very expensive for a college student. If you need a place to stay off campus, expect to find one at Austin Peay because there are unlimited options.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Financial Aid office usually gets your things together pretty well, and your refund check comes right on time, but it is hard to receive scholarships from Austin Peay if you're a freshman.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: Uniqueness of Apsu – There is not much to say. The only good thing is the food and the gym.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If You don't have a car you're out of luck. Everything is very far from campus, and the bus rides are long and bumpy!

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very diverse i thought it would be a lot of Whites but APSU is a diverse campus.

Local Atmosphere: Intramural Sports – This is where the kids who played sports in high school or just want to play a sport can play against other students.This is for the students who are not on a collegiate team.

College Freshman

Academics: Academic Support Center – This is where you can go to get free tutoring and you can also send any of your papers to them and they will correct it and give you suggestions before you turn it in.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting Into Apsu. The process to get into the university is not to dificult, students just need to complited paper work. The challenging part about the program i am majoring is the profeciency test to place you in the music theory classes.

3 College Junior

Weather: Weather is pretty nice around Apsu, and the only way that it affects me is when it is raining and i have to walk to go to the food court or to any class. When it is summer time there are plany of activities on campus.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: Eating at Apsu.. There are not many food or dining options on campus, there is just one food court on the whole university and to be able to eat ovethere i have to get across campus which make me spent most of the time walking from building to building without having enough time to enjoy my meal.

College Freshman

Majors: A Little Intimidating! APSU has a great nursing program, but because of that, there is a good amount of competition. Nevertheless, I love everything about nursing: helping people, caring attitude, ect. The best thing about our program is the teachers. They're always there to help and answer questions!
