Administration: In the dorm hall they were very strict with visitation. If you did not have a permit to park then you would receive a ticket and having drugs and alcohol was not tolerated.

Off-Campus Housing: I am not sure of the off campus housing and how to find them.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not really party but I know that a lot of parties are thrown during the weekends.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few options for people who want to eat or order food off campus.

3 College Freshman

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The policies at our school are very average. The only thing that we don't get that every other college has is visitation. If you live in any of the dorms you have to vote on visitation and sometimes everyone doesn't vote so therefore we don't get it most of the time.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid was terrible. The lines are ALWAYS long when school first starts and if yu have a balance it stops you from getting any classes on time. So my advice to anyone coming to TSU is make sure that you have everything taken care of before you go to financial aid, if you feel like your question hasn't been answered DO NOT LEAVE until you get what you are looking for, and go as early as possible.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I'm an athlete so I have to eat everyday so most of the time I buy my own groceries to make sure I eat three times a day but I rarely eat in the café. I like the salads in the POD, the pasta in Pizza Hut, and the breakfast food at Chik-fil-a.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My experience living on campus wasn't that bad. Everything was in walking distance of what I needed and I really like that there is a café on the first floor of my dorm. I wish the rooms were bigger but that would be the only thing I would like to change. The best dorm to live in would have to be Rudolph and that's because it newer and it just seems a lot more cleaner than any other dorm on campus. There is always something to do on campus but sometimes you may become bored. Moving in was a breeze and it doesn't cost much to live on campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks always have things going on campus. If you want to know more info about them or about any organization Greek or non Greek there are always tables set up in the student center every Wednesday.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: With the schedule of the caf. Not being flexible students are able to swipe in the pod to get a meal if they wanted to for later.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: TSU definitely has is pros and cons but I would not change my desicion to come here. Overall I love my school and have learned the ins and outs of everything here.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: When it comes to getting extra money or enough money for school you have to really know who to talk to. They will tell you that you can only get so much but there are people who can help you.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The process could have went a little more smooth but I feel like it's always a hassle when in comes to the administration at TSU

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security on campus is pretty tight but there are other entry ways that are not completely covered by security. This is what causes the issues on campus

1 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic facilities really need to be updated. The quality of the equipment is very poor.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus but we have campus apartments that are available to students who do not wish to live on campus.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: TSU is literally a party school! We have more social events and parties going on than any other college or university!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining near the school literally consist of fast food and ma and pa soul food places. No healthy options at all. As far as delivery certain places will not deliver to campus after a certain time and the ones that do have a 20 spending limit before they will deliver to you.

3 College Junior

Administration: The school is strict on things that should not really matter such as visitation and parking but don't really focus on things that do such as smoking and drinking on campus.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I don't feel like they try to help as much as they can. It takes a while for them to process your aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are a lot of pros with going to an hbcu but there are also a lot of cons. Tsu needs a lot of work but has the potential to be an excellent school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I can say that most of the apartment that are off campus are least and affordable for people .

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.
