3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The best dorm on campus to stay in is Hale Hall or Rudolph. Hale hall's dorm director cares about all the residents and their concerns about residence life. Living on campus has some dosadvantages such as privacy and visitation but it is cheaper and more convenient.

Athletics: Sports is a big part of TSU. I am disabled so I can't play sports a few of my peers are on the softball and football team and they enjoy it.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The School has taken great measures to improve safety on campus. Dr. Glover has done an excellent job restoring confidence with students and parents on staff since all the negative shooting from the fall 2015.

Greek Life: More Community involvement should be shared with non greeks. Everyone likes supporting the growth of the community in partnership.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Excellent for Athletes and non athletes as the facilities are current and staff assist anyone with a smile during usage.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The School is great when you deal directly with individuals within the department of study your interested in. The school has issues only when you deal with the administrative side. The staff appear irritated to do their job when you come in for service. Different counselors all the time for class scheduling and they give off the attitude that your bothering them when it is time to register for the next semester and what classes may be needed.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
