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!

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!

It really DEPENDS where you choose. All bernhardt rentals are excellent excellent! They are more expensive, my apt is around 400 a month per person with electricity/cable/water/etc, but well worth it. Many of their places are practically on campus. There are other rental places as well, soard is a popular one. I'd say its more mid-grade, but still nice enough. Then there are other smaller random ones varying in "niceness" You can definitely find something for everyone, from rental houses, duplexes, apartments, condos, town homes, far away, near campus, expensive, not expensive, you just have to look!
