3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Security on campus enables students to drink or smoke publicly but i am sure many students engage in those activities in their room.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Tougaloo campus life is a good experience for people who come out of state because every student is friendly. If you walking and pass by another student they will smile and speak. Every student is very polite and friendly. There are alot of organizations that you can join and they have activities or events of all kind going on across the week.

Health & Safety: I, myself, have never felt unsafe but seem things have happened to me before such as vandalism of my car. One day when i was living on campus evryone tires in the dorm parking lot had got poked or slashed. Also, when we leave for certain breaks rooms would have been broken into and the school didn't really help with that. To me the security guards are more concerned with giving out tickets for parking instead of making sure things are safe around us.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: If you are a commuter i feel that you will get left out of certain events and things happening on campus because they don't let you know when things are happening. If you a commuteer you just come to school and head straight back home. Noone will have the oppurtunity to know who you are.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Sports Are Not Our Strong Point – sports at Tougaloo are extremely what you make them. The sports are like volleyball, baseball, touch football, cheerleading, basketball for men and women, and workout sections at the gym. Sports are fun to play and the men's basketball team are really good. The fan support and team involvement are very necessary. Team involvement is good because you can have to help you determines my work

Parking: Need for Speed – On the Tougaloo campus, having a car is needed. Although the campus has everything you need except restaurants, they have an eating area , social events , and your daily needs in the bookstore. The parking rules are enforced well because at no time are you allowed to park on campus for a long period of time without a
Campus decal. If you do decide to disregard and disobey the parking rules it can result in a ticket and fine costs. Also, toeing could result if no action is taken from the violation. There are many parking spaces accessible to the students and however parking recklessly or in handicap spaces may result in ticketing so watch out and follow the rules of the campus roads

Campus Strictness: Campus Rules to Protect You – the strictness of the campus is for your protection. To
Protect you and your experience on campus, security is there 24 hours a day to make sure you are safe. They ride around campus to make sure that all students are protected and safe. Also, they are at the campus booth to protect students from unauthorized visitors or potential violators of the college.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity at Tougaloo College is at a high percentage. This school year there are students who are from different countries who speak different languages and I believe that if a college is diverse, then you can easily learn about different cultures and languages around the world. I believe that diverse students can general enhance student values and cultural differences.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Sports Are Needed – Sports at Tougaloo College is not as huge. The school has basketball, baseball and tennis. Our training facility is somewhat weak and could use a major upgrade. We have a men and women basketball team. The student body support the teams by attending the games. It is one of the way to pass time during the weekend. I think the school should put more funding into the area of sports to attract players to the school.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Dining Options – Restaurants in the Ridgeland-Jackson area are plentiful. The area have numerous options for diners to select. One of my favorite place to dine is Cozumel for Mexican cuisine. The food is delicious and very affordable. I also like Biaggi's to dine with family and friends. The food is excellent. Diners will receive healthy portion of food. One cannot go wrong in selecting a place to eat in the area.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments for Students – Apartments that are safe in the Ridgeland-Jackson area are quite expensive for college students. Students cannot afford to live in these units without having to worry about the cost. If you do not have roommates to cover the cost, students are left with having to live on campus. In addition, the apartments are not in areas where public transportation is accessible. Therefore, the apartments are not ideally for students.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not Many Options – There are no other options to choose from other than the cafeteria at Tougaloo College. The is sometimes unpleasant and begins to get old after so long. I would suggest that the college builds some other on campus eating sites.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Awesome Major – At Tougaloo College, the Natural Science Division is by far the best department on campus. The department produces 50% of Mississippi's doctors and lawyers. It is an awesome department and has worldwide recognition for the students it produces as well as its students academic achievement. I am well satisfied with my decision to declare Chemistry as my major.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Depends on Who Catches You – The police force can be firm at times if you are caught smoking and drinking on campus. It sometimes depends on who catches you.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks Dominate the Scene – Greek life is very popular at Tougaloo College due to the mere fact there is not a football team or band to keep students occupied during the fall semester. It is a big deal if you are in a frat or sorority being that our campus population is so small. Greek life is very popular!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is not as bad due to the new construction of various parking lots around campus. You can arrive to class on time and still have a decent parking spot.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Everyone Wants to Be Greek – Greek life at Tougaloo College would make eight of the nine Pan-Hellenic Greek organizations represented very proud. Each group strives to uphold the principles of the organization, and do their best to reach out, and try to include non-Greeks in community service activites, and services for the overall greater good of the community.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing Could Be Better – Tougaloo College only has four dormitories, and out of the four, two could be much better. They are the much older dormitories that need to be updated, however the other two are much newer, so they can accomodate students much better.

5 College Senior

Weather: Mississippi mainly has a hot climate, and it does not rain much either, and because the campus is very small, it rarely effects classes. Even in the winter months, the temperature does not drop very low, and it does not get as cold as it does in the northern states.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Could Be More – Tougaloo College is rich with history, however, because it is a historically black college, there is a higher percentage of black students than any other race. Within recent years, Tougaloo College has been attempting to do much better at integrating different races into the school by accepting those of an oriental background, and Caucasian origin as well.

5 College Senior

Majors: It is relatively easy to get into the Mass Communication department. However, everything is hands on and you learn a lot because the teachers take time out to help each student one on one. I love my department

2 College Senior

Computers: The computer's at Tougaloo College runs really slow.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Private institution where mojority African Americans attend.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Very Family-Like – Everything about Tougaloo College will make you feel like they have been your family all along.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: There Really Isn't Anything Available – Although there isn't anything on campas, there are plenty of places eat close by.
