3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know too much about greek life at TSU, a lot of the greeks are low key until events take place.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: it could always be better in various areas i.e building wise.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: they have a very good mass communication program, and the professors are very engaged. the only thing I don't like about the professors is if you don't have an passing grade or the grade you desire in the first part of the semester its more than likely going to stay the same even after all of the extra credit you've done.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've never seen recruiters on campus but their are some professors in your field that will try their best to get you a job and or internship before you leave their class or graduate.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: we have securities everywhere on campus and it's very safe. you need your ID to get in every building on campus or you will not be able to get inside, also in the dorms. in the beginning the campus crime rate was a little high, but after we got more security it slowed down.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is really fun. the only thing that's not appropriate for college level is after 11:30 there is no visitation for all dorms and its hard to socialize with other peers.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: greek at tsu are very important. becoming greek is a very big deal, we always have a coming out for every sorority. greek housing aren't available on campus

5 College Freshman

Athletics: the student body is very involved in the sports life. TSU have really good school spirit whether the team is doing good or bad tsu tigers have the best school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: my experience at TSU has been awesome! the campus leaders are always getting the student body involved, and it's always something positive going on. I wouldn't choose any other school because at TSU I feel as I'm at home, we're a big family!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses I've already taken were not complicated, but I had problems with a few professors. Some of the professors could be rude at times, or didn't elaborate on the criteria they gave us. The class sizes weren't that big and most of my professors knew me by name.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There have been many different job prospects that have came on campus to offer jobs and internships. As far as the alumni network, I don't think it's that strong. The alumni in my opinion doesn't give back to TSU like other alumni at other institutions.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have had a few incidents happen on campus when it comes to crime. After those incidents occurred the police and security rate increased. Now that our police and security rate has increased, we haven't had any incidents occur. I feel safe on campus. I do walk in groups just to make sure nothing happens, but I don't have any fear while walking on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've only lived in one residence hall on TSU campus. The living conditions were poor in my opinion. The workers that are hired to clean the bathrooms didn't do a good job. They slacked in many areas. The cost wasn't that high, but for the money I had to pay I didn't feel the living conditions were acceptable.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus in a positive way. The Greeks are always out speaking to people on campus and to me, they are very friendly. Greeks are looked up to by many students on campus. A lot of people want to join Greek, so they connect with people that are already Greek. We currently don't have any on campus Greek housing that I'm aware of.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I enjoy the sports at Tennessee State University. The fan support and school spirit is very high. Everyone enjoys watching the different athletic teams compete.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In my eyes Tennessee State University is a school I would recommend to anyone. I love how the people make me feel. TSU is my home away from home. From day one, all I felt was love and everyone makes you feel so comfortable.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus administration provides opportunity for the students, but there tends to be alot of unorganized communication involved with almost everything on campus.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think the administration does their best to supply a safe environment for the students. It isn't the students or anyone else ON CAMPUS that serves as a threat, it is the neighborhood surrounding the campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't usually hear much about greek life on campus.

1 College Junior

Athletics: The athletes are spoiled. Constantly cheat. And nothing is said to them. The fact that they attend school and don't even apply themselves is more than frustrating to the average student, and the fact that the teachers know it is going on and don't bother to do anything about it screams injustice for us non college athlete students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a diverse University for sure. Some teachers genuinely care about the students, most could not care less and it is obvious this institution was not their first career choice.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: security has increased since cameron's death in october.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: professors need to care more.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: wilson hall is where most freshman live unless you come in as an honor student but wilson is terrible with many incidnets from rats, to raoches, to stinky females .

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: greek life at TSU is somewhat engaging .

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.
