5 College Freshman

Majors: Plenty of fields to choose from, all pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Small classes, very easy to make connections.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They enforce what they need to. Nothing more.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: You walk, ride your bike, or drive yourself.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It is what you make it. The resources are there.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Plenty of people to play sports with you.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's called restaurant road for a reason.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you're over 21, it's good.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Plenty of different people, but mostly white.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The rain comes and goes.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The FA office is a nightmare sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you don't like it, you won't see it.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Virtually non-existant crime, super safe campus. Have common sense and you're fine.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Tech is a great priced school anyway, but it's easy to get scholarships if you have the grades and commitments. There's a university scholarship that a lot of people have and workstudy too. HOPE, and local-within-a-major scholarships apply. Just make sure you do the aplication by the deadline.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Campus parking is a mess, but everything on campus is a fair walking distance. There is a city bus system, but it only stops once an hour, until 6 on weekdays and 9 on weekends. It's handy if you don't have a car, but you have to dedicate like 3 hours to going to Walmart.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: If you want to be boring and closed-up, you should go with either New Hall. It's notorious for having one bathroom to two people and for having people that just stay in their room all the time. Capital Quad is old, but your floormates are something special to you and there's a great community atmosphere. Same thing for Jobe/Murphy, Pinkerton/ MS Cooper, and Crawford. The dorms are oldish but get renovated fairly often - they just did Pinkerton/MS Cooper and Jobe/Murphy is next. Dorms can be special - men's only, women/s only, and major-only. But you know, dorms. Community showers, one elevator, one landry room. There's also Tech Village which is on-campus apartment housing for Junior/Seniors.

3 College Junior

Weather: Tennessee weather is a bipolar mess and it applies in Cookeville just the same. Scorching hot dry summers with wet, frigid winters and a random back-and-forth mix for spring and fall.

Make sure you have rainboots and jacket, and you're pretty much okay though.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Cookeville is a plethora of variety when it comes to restaurants. Interstate Drive has chains - Logans, Steak n Shake, Cheddars, etc. There's fast food and Waffle House. What's great is that there are local joints too. We have Grandma's Pancakes when Waffle House or IHOP aren't your thing. There's Gyro Dude, Ocha, Mandarin Palace, and House of Thai when you want something intenational - as well as varies Mexican places (El Milagro is best). There's also local bars, sandwich shacks, and coffee houses - Spankies, Underground, and Poet's.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: We have a variety of "fast food" - burgers, pizza, subs, and snacks in addition to the cafeteria. It's usually okay, but not for someone that enjoys variety or fresh healthy food. Not good for those with dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian/vegan, gluten intoleant, etc. Overall, it's fine and it changes every few semesters. Also, off-campus dining is very easy to do.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I'm moving off campus next semester and surprisingly it's cheaper than the dorms. I also have my own bath and full kitchen. It's biking distance from campus.

3 College Student

Computers: The wireless is terrible, it cuts on and off randomly all the time. If I used ethernet, it works just fine. There are always computers open in the computer labs and also there is the ability to rent a computer form the library.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: The clinic is at the bottom of the nursing building and it's very convenient to get to. It's also very affordable. Safety is another thing I am content with. Walking across campus I don't have the fear of getting robbed or seeing any sort of trouble.

4 College Student

Academics: Engineering is taken seriously at Tennessee Tech, along with all of the other majors this college takes pride in its academics.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: I spend most of my hours with my friends at Poets On The Square. It's a little hipster coffee shop with a wonderful atmosphere. Everything is in walking distance so eating at any fast food restaurant is in mere walking distance.

4 College Student

Greek Life: I have many friends who are in the Greek life and they haven't changed a bit. I have a lot of respect for most of the fraternities and sororities.
