3 College Freshman

Academics: Depending on the professor you get, you'll either learn or struggle to learn on your own.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: students may complain the workload is hard but it really isn't they're just lazy and unmotivated...which I can understand when they tell me what high school they've graduated in or their previous life endeavors in high school ;)

3 College Sophomore

Academics: teachers are old we need newer professors...dr. Wilkerson sucks butt. Hillar is 100 y.o. Some people you can't even understand and have no unique teaching style other than reading off a PowerPoint that's why 99% of the students don't go to class. Study really hard for mid term and finals most of the exams are comprehensive.

Academics: TSU has several different schools. The school of communication, which I am in is great and most of my professor really work with hands to make sure you succeed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: We are a more hands on school so we use all of the equipment they even let you come on your own time to get extra practice. The have opportunities outside of school to help you get a better feel of what it will be like in the working world.
