4 College Senior

Diversity: To go to a Historically Black College & University the diversity here is great. Diversity does not have to be displayed by skin color alone, but by the things we do, are interested in, and opportunities we create.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Everyone knows the rules and is told about them constantly. If you get in trouble for breaking the rules it is no one's fault but your own. Even the administrators will be lenient with you once or twice, but after that it is on you.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: For the under 21 crowd the party life is restricted to any of the campuses they can get to. Vanderbilt usually has a party going on each weekend at different fraternity houses on their campuses. The only problem with that is that they do not always let non-Vanderbilt students join unless you know someone in the fraternity. When they do let outside students in though, it is a great time. Tennessee State University usually throws a party at a night club, but sometimes you can find one at an apartment or house. Downtown is for those of the 21 and over crowd. The party never ends down there and is always fun.

3 College Senior

Transportation: We do not have zip cars or campus shuttles. The city bus is the most reliable form of transportation for someone without a car. There are also buses that run that are completely free and will take you around downtown and music way off of Demonbreun. Many students do not know about it because they do not do research. The taxis in Nashville are inconsistent because some days they will come get you in 5 minutes and other days they will say they are coming and never come. The problem is that they do not tell you how long the wait will be or if they are backed up.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The cafe has endless eating, so buffet style it just is not always the best food each day. The sub shop is only one plate and may not fill you up but does give you something different than what the cafe gives based on the menu.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: If you are looking for healthy options then you will really have to search unless you only eat sushi, then there is a lot of that around. For the late night eaters many places in Nashville are open until 2 or 3 am and they deliver. Other than that we have cuisine from all over the world: Ethiopian, African, Hispanic, Italian, Korean, Middle Eastern and of course American.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid is not hard to get at Fisk as long as you take care of everything on your end. The school is constantly working for students and giving them opportunities to receive scholarships on the daily. If there is ever any trouble all one has to do is call or go there in person and work it out. They lay everything out for you and will find the solution for you if they do not have it right away.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are good for those who play sports. As a student you see that the athletes do love their sport and want to do the most with it, but the problem is when it comes to game time they fall short. Individually the players are great, but as a team it is hard to see any camaraderie.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: When I was a freshmen Greek life was always high on life. You would see people wearing paraphernalia all the time and there was always an impromptu step show going down. As of late though, it has dwindled down to almost nothing. The Greeks barely show that they are associated anymore and many barely step and or stroll unless its for an event, or some ol'heads are on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I really like Nashville downtown. It is so pretty down there and the school is 20-30 minutes away.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is not that good unless it is homecoming or orientation week.

3 College Junior

5 College Junior

Majors: I interned at Lehigh University last summer. I learned so much about research ethics, more biochemical methods.
