Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is a school based on that is willing to work hard and make suer that every student gets the best education that they can get.

My advice that I would give to parents and/or students is choose your college carefully. Don't choose a college based on what your friends and family say. Choose the collge that you know that you can see yourself attending and evoloving into a better person. Make yourself feel proud of the college choice that made. Now go out there and make something of yourself at the college of YOUR choice!!!!

Research, research, and research. Ask students and faculty who attend the school of your interest about it. Also make sure that the school offers everything you want and need from it, i.e: major, minor, activities. Once you're at the college of your choice study and do your school work first to get it out the way, be nice and considerate to others, and do whatever else you want or need to do afterwards.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Our financial aid staff is very unorganized and can be unprofessional most of the time. They get impatient and mean at the students alot. It also seems that our money being spent on unnecessary things around and on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To try to be focused on what you want to accomplish with your education, but to remember it's alright if you change your major once you've been exposed to the various fields that a college has to offer.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take your time and look at all options. Don't just look at who gives the most money- sometimes it is worth it to pay a little more for a better experience- academically, socially, emotionally and mentally. While college IS about education, it is also supposed to be 'the best 4(or 2 or 6 or whatever) years of your life'. Its a learning experience and its alot harder to learn if you wake up daily with a negative attitude because you hate the college you go to. At the same time don't try to take on too much debt either. this includes credit cards, school loans etc. Be VERY careful with credit cards and debit cards as well, its very easy to overspend with both especially the bank cards w/Mastercard/ Visa logos. And above all-WORK HARD- study, study, study but don't totally forget what rest and fun mean.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Not enough grants and scholarships unless you are a TN resident

Singing GLory Hallejuah WHEW IM so glad I go to TSU!!! "that's a part of our schools theme song". But i would say think, work serve.

TSU is all about school spirit. Everyone loves the school. You feel like home on campus and out of all the schools when i walked on campus i knew that i was suppose to be there. My spirit was intuned and i enjoyed the fact i naturally felt comforatble. TSU offers a lot to their students once they get there,but it is definately a challenge to try find what you want. I like the challenge that TSU offers.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

SAVE MONEY... apply for scholarships and never take no for a answer. I have always wanted to go to TSU ever since i was 11 years old. I knew thats where i wanted to be but you have to know that you have to make the decision for your self. Your parents cant make it for you , counselors or your peers. Your future is what you make it and it reflect's how many opportunities that you have actually taken adavantage of. As you can see I used the word "you" a numerous amount of times. This is because this the time in your life to be so selfish about yourself and it's perfectly ok!!! I love my college experience so far and I can't wait to continue on with my collegiate career.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I would give to parents and/or students would be to start your process early! Most students tend to wait to the last minute and end up missing out on scholarships or financial assistance. Also keep in mind of all the expenses that are involved because, college is not cheap. If you know that your child is not a strong believer in education, start off small (community college, online classes) so that you will not waste so much money. Last but not least, APPLY FOR EVERYTHING!!!!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about TSU is the financial assistance!! They tend not to help you at all when it comes to recieving money for tuition. There tends to not be any friendly help with this situation!

What kind of person should attend this school?

I would say a person who is a residence of Tennessee because the out of state tuition are extremely expensive.
