4 College Senior

Facilities: The student life on campus is always busy. There is always music playing and the common area is always full of life. There are many trees on campus which makes it easy to relax outside in between classes and socialize with friends or meet new people. One of the traditions on campus is a dance off. Another tradition that is exciting on campus is homecoming week. The entire week is full of festivities to get students involved.

Facilities: The reason I chose TSU is because it has the ONLY bachelors degree in Respiratory Care in middle Tennessee. Getting a bachelors degree was extremely important to me and TSU allowed that to happen. It is also extremely diverse and full of culture.

The administration at TSU has spent millions of dollars making sure the facilities are nice and hospitable to students. The best facility is definitely the Floyd-Payne Campus Center. It houses all the really important offices such as records, financial aid, the bookstore, post office, as well as a huge lounge area. It is three floors high, and students spend a lot of extra time there. The student publication (the Meter), the SGA, and the career center are all located in this building as well. There are, however, older buildings that need to be remodeled badly. The newer buildings are kept up really well, and the administration is trying to remodel parts of the campus that are not in great condition. The most important thing to remember is which buildings are cold and which buildings are unbearably hot. The buildings around campus all have their own temperatures, and no one can seem to regulate it. For example, if it is really cold outside, the heat is probably on, so it is going to be really hot inside the building. McCord Hall is always very cold because it is the Science Building and full of expensive equipment, so remember to bring a jacket if you mind the chilly temperature. The upper floors may also be incredibly warm, so wear lighter clothing if you have a class on the third floor of any building. Don't worry, though: once you have visited and attended classes for about a week, you will know exactly how to dress!
