College Junior

Majors: I'm not sure how to answer

3 College Junior

Majors: You get a lot of experience but they are very limited depending on the major you have. I got lucky and stumbled upon my summer internship. It wasn't paid but I got to network and possible first picks at job opportunities.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on how connected you are to on campus activities, it's all very nice & convenient.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Our school is in the middle of a debatable area. It's not really bad & not much happens on our campus yet, they try to link a lot of things that do happen in the area just based on the close proximity to our school.

3 College Junior

Academics: I love my professors but us art majors sort of are overlooked when it comes to our specific needs

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I 'm actually hoping to have my own off campus apartment by Spring or next Summer

3 College Junior

Facilities: It's not great but also not terrible. Although, as an art major it can get tough trying to find a decent place to work on projects outside of the small dorms.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: It really depends on the person and the people you hang out with. After my freshman year, I wasn't excited about clubs anymore. I usually just hang with a bunch of my closest friends and house parties are better, usually free, and not as stressful as getting ready for the club.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I have nothing bad to say really.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: I just wish there were at lease some more or better options. We can't use our meal plan off campus like other near by schools so our choices are very slim.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school! Its a great community to be around and a lot of diversity!!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Its the typical food chains, kfc,tacobell, pizza hut same thing on campus..

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I love my school spirit

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is fine to my standards but I love to dress in style and class. I'm very outgoing, so I know that people will love to be around me because I'm every funny.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The reason why it's great because I love Chick-Fil-A

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's not enough money to finance me for college.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: It's fine, probably would be better with more variety.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There's a lot of diversity on campus, but it depends on what major you are in to really notice the diversity.

College Senior

Scholarships: The unfortunate thing is that most people who enroll have some sort of problem with their financial aid. It's just the process.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: I am not interested in parties. I have no knowledge of them.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Student center is cool when it isn't crowded, and not really interested in many campus events or activities.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I find living on campus okay. It's close to my classes and I am not bothered by people.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not interested in Greek life on campus.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know anything about off-campus housing.

College Senior

Majors: I would like to have an internship, but I just have not received much help to get one either for my major, or in general.

Students at TSU seem to be happy with their experiences thus far. The school has its issues, such as parking and problems with administration, but on the whole, students feel it is a good school and they have no regrets. The University's motto is "Students Matter Most," and they truly try to aid students in any way they can. The teachers are excellent; although some could be a little more outgoing, the majority really tries to help students to get the education they are paying for. There is a good balance between academics and socializing as well, and TSU students know when to party and when to study. There are a few exceptions, but most students do not allow their social lives to interfere with their grades because their education is important to them. However, students are not afraid to blow off class for the fall and winter breaks to go home early, and they are not shy about heading out early on a Friday for a Tigers road game! There are a few improvements that could be made such as parking, registration, and some building renovations, but most of TSU's drawbacks are related to the same problems the city itself has. The administration seems like they are trying to better the school, and former-president Hefner was adamant about fundraisers and programs that brought money to the school for its improvements. There is one aspect that needs to change and that is the enrollment and registration process. It is difficult for an incoming student to know where to go and who to contact, and the administration could be much more helpful in aiding students with registration and updating them on their financial aid status. TSU students are satisfied with the school as a whole, and in order to get the best ideas of what to do and not to do, talk to the students. TSU students are friendly, energetic, and always able to help someone
in need.
