Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Not everyone is keen on the town of Murfreesboro, but almost everyone loves MTSU—it's a safe and rewarding environment. One key to a stress-free experience here is to plan ahead so you're not running late for class all the time. Stress can be tough, and a few stitches in time can help you avoid a lot of headaches. Once students graduate, many seem to leave with a bigger impression of the people who helped them learn, rather than the actual material they studied. Lots of students also comment that they have made great friends at MTSU and are grateful for the experience and opportunities. There is something for everyone in Murfreesboro, and if you make an effort to look around the corner, you may find the solution to a problem you didn't even know you had. The outdoor environment around MTSU is personally rewarding. There are local parks everywhere and major state parks as close as a 30-minute drive in any direction. Anyone who chooses to become active in outdoor pursuits will not be let down. Between the inspiring Tennessee landscape and the technical and logistical assistance from MTSU, an outdoor enthusiast can enjoy wonderful experiences here.

Remember: If you ever need help while you're here, all you have to do is ask. The faculty and staff at MTSU want nothing more than to see you succeed. Your success reflects upon them and enforces their purpose in teaching. Your teachers can also be your best networking tool when it comes time to look for a job or internship, so when you find professors you like, take other classes with them, and really get to know them—you can go far.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's not many that we have near us, but of what we do have it is very convenient.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The only difficulty I encountered and would have to overcome is all of the science classes! And it would be best to look over things about your major before you make your decision, so you would not have any changes because you end up not liking it. Other than that, it's great.

College Freshman

Majors: I say this because I am just starting school, so I haven't decided or looked into any programs yet or known of any.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our campus is big, so I know it wouldn't be perfectly clean but for the most part it's better than i thought it would be seeing how big the campus is.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's really a diverse setting so I could not decide. but for the most part everyone dressed appropriate and are very active in joining programs, clubs, and community service.
