It is a beautiful college that is small enough to have a personal relation with your professors. They are also always updating renovating some building.

Tennessee Tech is a great school because the environment is designed to drive you towards success but you need to be motivated because classes get a lot harder than an ordinary community college

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!
