I love my school, we have great school spirit. Everyone seems so happy to be here. The instructors are always willing to help even after office hours.
At first, I never considered going to an HBCU. I didn't have a backup plan for school until the last minute except for Community College or Tennessee State. I heard a lot about giving full rides, a good nursing program, and having scholarship money so I applied. I am starting to like the school a lot more now that I'm getting used to college life, but it was hard getting through to administration due to how big our class is and how much we had to put together. It was unorganized until they had gotten everyone accommodated.
This school is honestly a great school. It has a decent sized campus and the people and professors here are nice. The partying isn’t too much of a deal. Everyone here looks after each other even if you may not know them at all. It’s a great environment here at Tennessee State University.
"I love my HBCU." I have previously attended a PWI, and I must say the biggest difference is the atmosphere. The curriculum is just as challenging and there has been no loss of the availability of educational and career opportunities. I have only gained more appreciation for my culture and gained a family within my department since transferring to TSU. It has certainly been the BEST choice for me.

If I could go back to highschool to work harder in getting good grades and not playing around in the classroom along with friends. but it was hard on me being at school once my little sister got sick. I was never at home and moving around to stay with a family members at times. I really wasn't thinking about college or how my grades affected me at the time until my junior year of highschool. And that year was hard that same year my sister died at the age of one years old. but I still came to school every day gave it my all during my highschool year. I always did my work and work hard to earn good grades in all my classes. The advice I would give myself is to never give up on your dreams and have faith towards the journey or what ever you are tryin to achieve. And don't let nobody tell you that you can't do it because you can. My goals was to become better than my parents and to prove to myself that I can do it . I can do it and to prove others that wrong.
A person that is looking to expand their education along with new opportunities that Tennessee state university .
The teachers, I think the teachers are the best because they really care about the students success.
Financial aid is horrible! It took 1 months before i received any refund money to buy my books! I had to pay out of pocket so I would not get behind in my classes. The financial aid at the school was audited and we were on the news because of all the students for 1 month did not have money!
my school is very unorganized
that it costed more than what i thougth.
My school is becoming a more diverse historically black college.
My classmates at college are friendly, nice, and very helpful.
My school is known for their sports.
The school has great unity. People (students) really care about one another.
The most frustrating part of most universities is parking for students who commute. That is the most frustrating part of TSU as well; however, I have never been late to a class because of parking. There are places off campus that are still close enough to park if a spot isn't available.
Someone who likes going to brick and morter schools
They challenge you, but it's nothing an average college student can't handle.
As an alumnus I think the Board of Regents has done and is yet doing it's best to cripple the university.
Party animals, the students don't take school seriously. Yes.
In my opinion the stereotypes are not accurate.
They are perpetuated by those not in attendance or dropped out.
Not very academically oriented.
Could not get into another university.
