4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: So happy I chose to stay in Clarksville and go to this University. It is alot better than I expected.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is a stuck up Greek. It's hard to find someone who isn't a hypocrite Christian that actually has a moral code.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Not enough parking spots for all of the commuters and they are always doing construction in the middle of spring and fall sessions that closes even more parking possibilities

1 College Freshman

Transportation: There is hardly parking and most students are commuters. The trolley is inconvenient and the bus is filled with people from the projects

3 College Freshman

Academics: No one knows about pre-vet and I feel it is brushed under the table

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not 21 I cannot get in nor would I waste my time partying

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Hardly anyone attends some of my courses. Also, the officers are never around to enforce the speed limit or the no smoking on campus. It's the worst having to walk behind someone smoking on a "smoke-free" campus.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The people in the Ellington can sometimes be rude and it's a hassle for a good student to even get financial aid. Everything typically goes to lower income students, and though my family is not low income, I am the one paying for my schooling.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: If you come to campus around 9:30, good luck finding somewhere that you don't have to walk. If you have a morning class and get to campus before 8 am then you have your pick of places, but they fill very quickly after that. The expansion to campus is great, but the park lots keep becoming new buildings and nothing is replacing those parking lots.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am so glad that I chose Austin Peay because the tuition is definitely manageable and I have made so many good friends here. My parents went to this University and so did my grandparents. Some of my friends vowed they would never go the APSU because they did not want to be stuck in this small town, but the experiences that I have on campus are far greater than I ever could have imagined. The atmosphere with my professors, friends, and the president of the University is so positive. I am not one for big cities and when I am walking across campus while the clock tower is chiming and the weather is nice and warm I could not have picked a better place to be.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I still live at home because I grew up about 15 minutes away from campus. However, many of my friends live off campus in nearby apartments or houses. House rentals are tricky if you are by yourself, but a small group of people renting together is fairly easy to manage. Apartments and houses are very easy to find in the areas around campus, usually within 20 minutes of driving time depending on traffic.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The stadium is being rebuilt to a four story expansion. The football field is also getting new turf that will be ready for the 2014 season. Two new buildings were built within the last two years for science and math. The buildings at the front of campus are beautiful on the inside with great structures and design.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Foy center is the athletic center. It is supplied with a track, basketball courts, weights, treadmills, stationary bikes, and much more. The hours it is open is great and it is no cost for current students.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The library had several computers available. During a busy point of the semester or day it may be difficult to find an open one, but they usually free up if you wait a little while.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love the small town, but I am a small town girl. UT gets more promotion in the nearby Walmart and other stores, but that does not take away from the University.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid department is great when there are no problems, but this past semester I had some problems and it took me going to the building and speaking face to face with someone there to receive an answer that was relatively simple. The scholarships, once confirmed, are credited to the student account and automatically subtract from your tuition total.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a Music Major and the Fall semesters are busy due to Marching Band events, but I do not complain one bit because it is so much fun. Practice time takes up a lot of time as well, but time management is a major key in keeping up with classes and other activities.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a member of any Greek society, but I have many friends who are. A few groups do have Greek housing, but it is of average quality.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Rain boots, Umbrella, and a winter coat with gloves and a hat easily solves weather problems. If the walk is from one end of campus to the other then winter can take a toll on the ability to enjoy campus, but it isn't too difficult to manage. When the weather is really bad campus will close.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There is an average range of professors, but all of the courses that I have taken so far have been very interesting. Some have more work than others, but nothing unreasonable. There is also a variety of levels in the academic field from beginner level to honors programs. The facilities are great. Some buildings are a bit confusing when you first go in them, but once you figure out where the rooms are it is no trouble, but what building isn't like that? Also, campus is growing they have added new dorms and two new academic buildings this year.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration, once you figure out the basics is rather simple. Usually any troubles can get sorted out easily by emailing or going to the registrar's office. The professors are of average diversity in knowledge level. The curriculum for the standard core classes are very manageable. Workload varies by class and subject, but I have not had a class that I have not been able to keep up with. The campus library is a major study area. It had several tables and computers to achieve all classwork with.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I do not take the public transportation, but I do see the buses often enough to infer that they are reliable enough to get a ride at multiple points in the day. Parking is sometimes a difficult if you arrive halfway through the day, but during morning and mid afternoon it is not too troublesome to find parking.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is really good. The only part with the Cafe is that there is the same variety, but that isn't to say that the variety is bad. It just gets a little boring if you eat there every single day. The good thing about that though is that there are several different places other than the Cafe available on campus.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are several exchange students
