3 College Freshman

Academics: I've just started. Not much to say yet.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but a lot others do and they love it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I filled out my FASFA and received more money than I thought I would, but I still had to take out a loan that I did not want to do. Next year, I hope to be able to pay for school without any loans. The whole process overall was easy once I got my paperwork completed.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I really enjoy my psychology class that I am in. This is the only class I have been enrolled in that applies directly to my major so far.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship yet.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't personally seen people using drugs or alcohol on campus, but I have heard of it being done. I have also smelled marijuana in one of the residence halls before.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Personally, I live in the oldest dorm hall on campus. It is not the best quality, but I guess it is a good value. Most people are commuters and they do not live on campus. This makes the weekends boring. Also, most of the food venues close on the weekends which is not a good thing at all!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I would say that the students are pretty involved with sports, considering how good our football and basketball teams are. Our football team did not win a single game this pasts season. Our chant is "Let's Go Peay!" and all of the students really love saying it and encouraging the athletes.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My friend had his truck window broken into while it was parked on campus, other than that I have not seen very many problems arise. He went to the campus police about it and they could not do anything about the problem because the perpetrator was not caught on camera. Overall, I feel safe on campus and I am a female.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Clarksville, Tennessee has been very chilly. It has been a cold winter here in general. Luckily the campus is not very big, so I am not outside for more than ten minutes at a time.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I don't wish to review this topic.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I had no trouble. I was automatically accepted, as per policy, based on my GPA.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my parents, so I never needed to look for housing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I find that I am in the horrible place of making too much money to get most scholarships, but not making enough to be able to comfortably pay for all of my costs. I was only able to receive one scholarship, despite having a near perfect GPA, and applying for all I was eligible for. The real problem is the inadequate amount of scholarships available.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't engage in these activities.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: APSU has its own police department. We also have emergency call stations that are lit up at night. The police will drive students to their cars if they feel uncomfortable. I feel pretty safe most of the time. The campus is immaculate and does not encourage the hanging around of questionable characters.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have no idea about Greek life. I don't think I would be the best person to review it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The reason I decided to attend APSU was the fact that I had no idea what I wanted to study, my family was moving nearby, and it was a public school. It was also in a better area of town than some of the other colleges I had visited. However, I then decided that I wanted to study Art History and APSU does not have that as a major. So, as much as I love the atmosphere and history program at APSU, I probably would have attended a school that had Art History as a minor, if I had known in my freshman year what I wanted to study. Everything worked out though. I plan to continue with my Bachelor's in history and complete a master's degree in something in the museum field.

I particularly love all of APSU's cultural events, including dance and music concerts, plays, international nights, art exhibits, and the Apollo talent show.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are specific scholarships for history majors and some study abroad trips offer history classes. The workload is very heavy, but it is definitely worth it. I am able to attend some of my classes in the history and philosophy department, which shares a building with the language department and the art gallery. I am surrounded by inspiration. I plan to become a museum curator, and am taking Art History classes to prepare for that. With my degree, I can work in libraries, historical societies and homes, and universities in addition to museums.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most of the professors clearly love what they teach and are enthusiastic about helping students to learn and develop a love for the subject as well. I find most students prefer the nursing or early education programs. They are very competitive. Students with disabilities can request assistance with tests and assignments. There are lecture series, poetry readings, and many study abroad opportunities. The registration process is quite simple. Freshman are walked through the entire process during convocation. Every semester, students must meet with their adviser to get their schedule approved.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness on campus is to keep students safe and out of trouble and doesn't affect students academically or socially. Austin Peay wouldn't really be considered a party school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't contribute much to the social atmosphere on campus.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Plenty of activities to do on campus, but only during week days. Plenty of restaurants and shopping opportunities off campus. The nearest big city is only approximately 45 minutes away and offers a variety of activities for students. The school is supported by the smaller and larger businesses in the area. The campus is smoke-free and alcohol-free and the campus is extremely safe.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at my school is okay!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: the campus is very divers and very accepting to all students.
