College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I wouldn't know much about off-campus housing. I do not live off-campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you have a car you can travel to more unique restaurants, but mainly fast food restaurants are within walking distance.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It's not the worst but it could be better. Service is only bad because they never have all of the correct documentation in a timely manner. It takes weeks for financial aid to be awarded, and that's only after you have hassled them constantly.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The part scene is not too bad. Depending on where you go, fights and disturbances are minimum.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If students had more room space, that would make it great!

Campus Food: There is little to no variation in menu choices, the hours for the main cafeteria are terrible, and there are not enough ways to use the meal plan.

Party Scene: I've seen plenty of party flyers around campus. I've been to a few and I've hated them. One was only bearable thanks to some friends. But everyone else seems to like the parties, but clubs with rap music and grinding is not my scene.

Greek Life: I don't care much for Greek life and haven't noticed them. They do things, I just don't pay attention to it.

Off-Campus Housing: I have never seen the off-campus apartments provided for students so I don't know what it's like. I only know what I've been told.

Local Area: Local atmosphere is only good when off campus. Campus life is boring and in the city there's not much to do unless you are 21 and over it seems. There might be more to do but transportation without a car is awful. The buses aren't very reliable

Administration: They try to be strict with some things but it just doesn't work. You will literally see people smoking next to a no smoking sign, including teachers. The when it comes to simple things like just having visitors in the lounge of a dorm it's totally restricted. Also cigarette smoke and weed can be smelled inside the dorms at times and no one does anything about it even though it's supposed to be prohibited.

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.
