My overall opinion is that Austin Peay is an awesome school! The teachers are amazing and always available. There is always free tutoring for anyone who's needing help. The campus is very diverse. I have become friends with some extraordinary people from many different backgrounds and cultures. I am extremely proud to be a Lady Gov!
My overall opinion of Austin Peay State University is that it is an excellent university. In my time at Austin Peay, I have learned much more than I would've thought. These things range from learning more about housekeeping to learning to do things independently of others. It has excellent resources in place in order to make sure you feel comfortable at the university and is fast to respond to issues or complaints.
The school needs to do better at making sure that students are treated like a priority. As a student here, barely any of the faculty has shown any compassion. My adviser literally abandoned me because I decided to start taking online classes after my first year. I took online classes because I didn't feel comfortable on campus either. The housing department doesn't fully accommodate students to make them feel comfortable. They don't help with disputes between roommates. Most of the faculty don't care about you succeeding, they just care about getting paid.
I love my school, but of course there's flaw about the school. The professors are great but you have some that will answer your emails and help you right away whereas, some of the professors will not be able to help you due to the fact that the professor may not be on campus. I lived on campus my first year of college and was placed on the waiting for the upcoming semester and was forced to look into off campus housing. The student life is great there are a variety of clubs and organization groups you can get involved in no matter your race, religion, and or ethnicity. I would definitely recommend my college to incoming students.

Honestly, I have made some bad decisions regarding college and I would go back and warn myself not to do these things. My two biggest mistakes were: making my job at a fast food restaraunt a career instead of just a part time job, and trying to have a family before graduating from college. I would tell myself to not get into my job so much and just keep it as a part-time job to help pay for school. I would also tell myself that it is not a good idea to move out and start a serious relationship when i should be concentrating on school. I believe those are my two biggest mistakes.
Austin Peay State University is located in a military town, therefor there are many different types of people from many different types of backgrounds. The atmospehere is friendly and open. Because of the diversity on this campus, it creates for a better learning enviornment. I have expereinced good class discussions due to diverse community. There are also a lot of nontraditional students. No one ever feels out of place!
that i had to claim my parents on my financial aid application until i'm 24. this disqualifies me for everything when i have to pay by myself.
A traditional student who has a lot of time to devote to school.
My university is amazing. The classes are small so students receive tons of one on one time. Tutoring and academic support is available for everyone. The Professors give out their numbers, emails, and office hours so students can get in touch with them. In other words they always make themselves available. The dorms are nice. Finally, we receive tons of free stuff: shirts, dinners, school supplies, etc.
Austin Peay's school spirit I feel like could have sometimes been better. While I was surrounded by people that loved going to athletic events more students could have supported our football team. In the time of my undergraduate career our football team had only won one game and while this is disappointing supporting our team is imporant in maintaining a positive outlook on the football season.
If a person is not hard working, cannot make good grades, or be involved they should not attend. If you are farther south than Clarksville, and do not like the cold, you might not like it at the end of the fall. It gets cold quickly and snows. If a person is undecided about what field to go into, I would suggest a smaller school or two year school until they find out. A lazy person really should not go here.
It seems to me that my classmates are not dedicated, attending college only to say they di so.
My school is my small preferable campus with many opportunities!
It was a small school, but not too small.
The library needs to be updated. Most of their books are outdated. The school also requires unnecessary courses such as P.E. and some others not related to you major.
The classes are challenging, and I learn a lot from each one.
Sororities and fraternities.
I am not aware of any stereotypes for APSU students as a whole.
