I love Austin Peay State University campus and professors. Austin Peay State University has a very diverse campus. The football team is okay they just need more practice.The school academics are great. I have learned so much since I have been here. I am a freshman at Austin Peay still learning my way around campus. The students on campus are very friendly and the professors are very understanding.

I love the positive atmosphere, and the staff and faculty are very helpful. The students are very nice and mannered, and follow the rules of the campus. There are many opportunities to get involved with the community on campus, as well as social activities for students to meet others and experience new things. Classes are challenging as they should be, and all assignments are graded fairly. Professors are very willing to speak with students if they have questions or need help. Students are encouraged to attend social and community events, with some professors even counting the attendance of an event as extra credit in their class. Overall, I enjoy being on campus. The only concern, in my opinion, is the cost to live on campus, which causes many students to commute from an hour away everyday to campus.

Even though, this school is not the biggest school. I really love it here. It big enough for where you are able to meet someone new everyday and small enough for teachers can work with you without a problem. Austin Peay State University is very big on school involvement. I wouldn't choose another school to go to.
