5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are plenty of courses to choose from, that is if you have time outside your major. The professors are always willing to help, and they are the best feature about Tennessee Tech. I believe one could not find better hands-on or more intelligent teachers anywhere else in this state. The class styles are generally a form of lecture, but they are engaging. Professors make an effort to entertain and motivate their students. The majority of music professors are great examples of how teachers should be as role models. I have, so far, loved my experience as a student inside their classrooms!

Health & Safety: We actually have several patrol cars on campus at all times. The university has installed emergency call stations posted throughout campus in order to protect students. I have always felt safe on campus whether I was alone in broad daylight or walking home at midnight from Bryan Fine Arts Auditorium. There is not much campus crime, but there have been a couple cases of students being arrested or pulled over. The campus really is a safe environment.

Campus Housing: Besides New Hall North and New Hall South, the dorms are in gross condition. My dorm, Crawford Hall, has roaches in the unisex bathroom. The plusses are free WiFi! Each student gets their own login and password. The social atmosphere is actually kind of friendly. The RAs make an effort to put on housing events, but sometimes they seem corny. The actual housing process is stressful because of how costly it is. If you are a freshman, I suggest really working hard to save money to afford the ridiculously over-priced housing and meal plan.

Athletics: School spirit is definitely not an issue here, but the athletic facilities are a problem. The Memorial Gym building is pretty run-down, and the restrooms are rusty and unkept. We have a very unsuccessful football team, but our other athletic teams seem to be doing average. I would say that sports are a huge focus on campus while other extracurricular activities are overlooked like the arts.

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been stressful. Tennessee Technological University's individual colleges are great, but the administration is terrible. They have not given enough attention to what the student body demands. They have ignored our cries for a better parking system and to make administration pay their fair share of parking fees. The financial aid department gives students barely enough to survive the semester, and they do not seem to care that each student is drowning in debt. I would only recommend coming here for an individual college. The professors are amazing and very hands-on! They are the only ones doing this money hungry school justice!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The small classes are nice because the teachers show that they care more in those.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think a UT degree might be valued more than us.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's less crime than most places.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wish new hall north had a kitchen.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not a fan of those kind of people.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: My high school football team was better than Tech's team.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't think I would choose this school again because everyone goes home on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've only had one issue with a professor, but other than that everyone here is fantastic! The love what they do and they make the classes interesting so you won't be bored during general education. Of course this is all dependent on who you exactly take, just like other schools.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: On some occasions we have a job fair on campus, where recruiters from all over come by to talk to students. I had a friend who received an internship this summer and he definitely enjoyed his time there. They work with you and answer all questions if you have any.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Being a college town in a rural area, everyone generally knows one another. If a crime were to happen, it would be resolved in a matter of minutes due to the connection that everyone has.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Depending on the housing option you get, you could either be in one of the best looking dorms ( New hall North/South) or one of the worst looking dorms( most dorms in the so called "Ghetto Quad"). They are renovating a few of them but the cost will increase.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The Greek life groups do help out with events, whenever we have them, so that's a good thing. I'm not one to get involved with the Greek life though.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Usually when we have big games, some students attend, but because this is a college town most people go home on those days.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The individuals and the activities around the entire campus make it a great place to get a degree!

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have not seen a single piece of alcohol or drugs on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are numerous courses that are offered to you as a student. The professors are all very friendly and are willing to help at any time with course assignments and any questions that anyone might have.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have numerous connections around Cookeville and several other parts of Tennessee.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a 24/7 campus security and emergency polls in order to respond faster if a person feels like they are being followed or stocked. Our campus police have a very fast response time and do not delay.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are really amazing some of the best I have seen. If you live on campus there should be no reason for you not to interact with others in your dorm or other dorms close to you.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek students are viewed as very talented leaders on campus and normally have high standings with any faculty and/or current student on campus.
