5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Memphis Tigers have amazing sports teams from their basketball team to their football team. Athletics is a big part of the school.

Off-Campus Housing: The only con with the off campus housing is the location which is right in front of the railroad tracks.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is great! There are plenty of options to choose from, all of which are reasonably priced.

Administration: I feel that the strictness is reasonable. I feel that with the exception of dorm visitation, everything is reasonably placed.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am not much into the party scene but there aren't many on campus options for parties. Any party will be done at someone's house or people just end up going to a club far from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I enjoy the meals but the main issue is that they do not have much of a variety. I end up eating the same thing every day.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It would not apply to me because I do not live in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Everyone with a Greek affiliation sticks their nose up.

Scholarships: Apply early, and you might get lucky. If you live in state well you're in luck. If you live out of state, try and get into the honors program so you can apply for the instate tuition scholarship.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Non-existent for the most part. I mean, there are frat parties, sure, but in general you wont find a party where everyone raves about.

Campus Quality: Weekends on campus are a ghost town making it depressing over the weekend. There aren't many activities going on during the weekends either, but overall during the week I'm sure somebody could find something. The library is amazing!

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think the visitation policy is outdated, but the administration is pretty strict on somethings- parking being one of them. Also, considering we are a dry campus, alcohol is also frowned upon.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If there is one thing that would keep me in Memphis alone, its my dorm. I absolutely LOVE my dorm- I live in Mynders Hall. It is the most spacious area to live in and right in the middle of campus which is a huge plus for just about anyone. You're truly in the middle of it all. My one complaint is that the UofM does not do any similar interest questions to try and room people together in their best interest. Thus creating numerous problems throughout housing and in general. Plus, the wifi is horrific here.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: if you aren't in a sorority or frat, good luck. If you have your own sense of style and are just kind in general, you will meet tons of people.. just don't come with pre-determined notions and you'll be fine. It's not hard to make friends, but they may not be just like you.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone loves the Tigers! There is so much pride that hangs around the Liberty Bowl (our stadium) and the FedEx Forum that the U of M campus bleeds blue, and bleeds tiger.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I love Memphis, there's a slice of Memphis for everyone. I pride myself on going to school in Memphis, and there are so many opportunities for every person.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Although Memphis has a reputation, the University prides itself on being one of the safest campuses in Tennessee. I feel safe to walk around on campus, but there have been incidents close off of it. Don't let the reputation of Memphis bring you down.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not having a car is a problem, so I am rating off of the few places that actually deliver to the University of Memphis campus.

4 College Junior

Administration: I believe the school has extremely fair policies. The campus is non-smoking but there are a few designated smoking areas to accommodate those who partake. There have been a few peaceful protests near campus that have not caused any disturbances, and attendance is strictly enforced in class.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options outside campus, from Mexican to Italian to Middle Eastern. There are some great Asian restaurants in town, too. You can find something for every budget and every taste. I recommend Cafe Ole and Seasons 52.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Tiger football has made a huge comeback this year and it's helping to unite students across campus. All students support the athletics programs.

College Junior

Greek Life: I have no affiliation with the Greek life, but those I have met who partake seem to enjoy themselves. Non-Greek students are not treated any differently.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: No one parties on campus, and I do not party with sororities or fraternities. I enjoy being old enough to drink and if I go out I will go to a bar or to a friend's house. I have not heard of any school-affiliated parties being incredibly awesome.
