IT'S A GOOD CAMPUS, WITH A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES
Overall, I have a positive opinion of MTSU. For the past 2 years, I stayed on campus. The campus living situation wasn't to die for but compared to other institutions it wasn't too bad. I met a lot of great people at MTSU. The community and environment are refreshing, bright, and friendly.
MTSU is a fantastic place for any new student to start. I am a non-traditional student, and have absolutely no issue accessing the resources I needed to succeed and transition outside of the army. The students here really care about learning, and are very inclusive to all kinds of different views and opinions on just about every topic imaginable.
It is generally a good school! I have had many amazing teachers and friends there, and I would encourage others to apply there if they are a Tennessee high school student with dreams of becoming something great without spending a billion dollars to receive a decent education with plenty of future opportunities. This is the kind of school where the education is everything, but having fun is just as important. The many activities and events the school has every week is INSANE, and I wish I had gone to more things my first year there. Overall, it's a great school and I wouldn't mind turning back the clock to do it all over again.

I have learned a lot through my college experience in the realm of intelligence, but also in terms of wisdom as well. I feel that I have grown enormously in maturity since leaving high school in Chattanooga, TN. After my first year at MTSU, every last one of the friends that had travelled with me to MTSU had decided to return to Chattanooga for miscellaneous reasons. I enjoyed the university and had made plenty of friends already, so I did not follow them to Chattanooga. However, this made my sophomore year feel like a second freshman year as I made a point to make new friends. However, it was very easy at this school. People seemed to want to meet new people as badly as I did. The majority of the students were extremely friendly.
I am a pre-medical student. I believe I have grown in intelligence greatly. I can always notice a difference between my understanding of particular concepts at the beginning and at the end of each semester. Also, the advising staff has really helped me put my best foot forward in terms of medical schools. Hopefully, I will soon be attending one.
My classmates are wonderful, they are very open and accepting of the people around them and everyone seems eager to make new friends and get to know as many people as possible.
My school is great experience.
The professors are the best part because they are very understanding and helpful. They always try to help the students with problems even if the probelm is not educational. The profeesors are also very easy to talk to and get along with.
People that are not fully dedicated to their education. Young students need to understand how expensive it is to attend college and the ones that are planning on going to party and to just get away from their parents should not attend.
The campus is large and spacious without feeling so big it's overwhelming. There is very much a feel of attending a private university at MTSU, thanks to small classes and personal attention from professors. Also, there isn't hardly any discrimination amongst students for who they are, where they came from or what they affiliate themselves with. Granted, not everyone gets along all the time, but there isn't a particular group of students who is targeted and harrassed either. There is also a STRONG theatrical and music presence at MTSU, which is why I chose it.
Help from the finacial aide office is the thing i hate most at this school. If you call they are rarely friendly and they do not really help you out. If I need to take care of something that has anything to do with finacial aide i start take care of it months in advance. it takes weeks for them to call you back if ever do and when you visit the office they just give you links from the schools website that are suppose to help you.
The kind of person that should attend MTSU is someone who is willing to do the research and be confident to ask. That person needs to be able to try new things and willing to be involved with the faculty, staff, and organizations on campus.
Even though my school wasn't my #1 choice, I did choose it for specific reasons. I attended a major university to start with, then a community college, then when I finally figured out what I wanted to major in, I chose MTSU because it had the best program in the state for my major and offered the most financial aid.
We have strong programs in Aerospace, Education, and Nursing. Our football team just won a bowl game; go Blue Raiders!
All the buildings location.
Classes were to large.
MTSU is an amazing campus for student/faculty interaction. We, as in one entity and not an individual, swim in school pride. There are often controversial protests and statements of all kinds, but the point of the matter is not holding up a sign and pumping one's fist; it is the fact that we are allowed to pump our fists and hold that sign while voicing our opinion. The faculty gives the students absolute respect, and in turn our student body reacts positively and a symbiotic relationship is formed.
There are need of improvements, after all: no campus is perfect. The major issue is parking, or better yet, the lack thereof. Students usually have to arrive about half an hour before their class begins so they will not be late. Yeah, it's that bad.
Most of the professors, despite some having a massive number of people in their class, will remember your face. Some will even go the extra mile and remember your name. What I find unique and appealing about MTSU is the diverse classes that are available for one to take. Everything from military science to yoga, the options rest at your finger tips.
I cannot even begin to touch up or even describe the amount of activities MTSU offers. You want to go scuba diving? No Problem! How about Tai Chi? You like oriental martial arts? You can find it right here. You like climbing rocks? Whadda ya know! There are clubs and classes for that too! You will have to try not to fit in.
The only stereotypes that I have heard about MTSU's students is that we are dumb/our classes are easy. I've also heard that we do not have a football team.
In certain scenarios, but every student you see is not stumbling drunk. Maybe slightly hung over, but not completely inebriated... yet.
Well the stereotypes of this school vary by where you are coming from. In Williamson county (Tennessee) the kids who didn't make the best grades went to MTSU. Everywhere else it is known as a great school for Recording Industry. I'm glad the stereotypes are good everywhere else because this school is great and deserves a great reputation.
Muslim students at MTSU discuss raising awarness on Islam.
I have never taken a bad class. There is always something to like in every course at MTSU! While there are sometimes professors that don't teach in a way one might like to learn, the common use of D2L, our online course system for online and hybrid learning, is fantastic for helping different learning types to get the most out of courses!
