Texas Southern University is an HBCU where being comfortable in your own skin isn't a problem. There's tons of different activities to do on campus almost every week for everyone. If you need a place to relax, people to talk to, or just wanna go somewhere to simply hang with friends, there's plenty of places on campus to visit. I am a 3rd year at this university, and it has been nothing but good since my first year here. I always had help when I needed it, always had things to do when I had time, and plenty of people to have fun with.
Texas Southern University is a great school and has definitely caught my eyes for my top 3 school to go to. This school is a great school as far a student relationship with teachers and student to student relationship. Id love to go here and not only further my education but have fun as well.
I feel is this the best hbcu ever made for the simply fact it offer so much to the community and is really a very productive school .
I am entering my 4th year at Texas Southern University. I have enjoyed my time here. I have learned, grown and matured a lot. I spent all my years here as a Tiger athlete on the Track team. I learned how to be competitive and my team spirit is high for not only Track but for all athletic organizations at Texas Southern University. I personally feel that the education that I have received has prepared me to continue with my educational goals to pursue my Master degree in Physical Therapy. The culture has prepared me to be a strong and productive black male in today's world. Thank you Texas Southern for all that you have done. I am forever grateful.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Texas Southern University is 51%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to continue to do what I was doing. However if any changes were to be made I would say study. I never studied inhigh school yet I kept good grades. These grades could have been better in any case so studying would help me if nothing else.
The best thing about Texas Southern University is the teachers. Once they know who you are, you can network to more professional people.
The true essence of an HBCU at its finest.
Some of my classmates are very interested in their education they study and are engaged, others just dont care they would rather just socialize and leave class or not come at all.
People who attend this school should be personable. They should be ready to take on a big city such As Houston. The school is under five minutes away from the busiest part of Houston which is downtown. This school is great and has a welcoming feel to it.
The most unique thing about my school compared to other schools I considered is the close knit relationships between students and faculty members. I have numerous valuable relationships with many of my professers and academic advisors; this has given me a major advantage over my school's competitors.
The most frusting thing about TSU is that there are a lot of students on campus who aren't truly interested in getting an education. Too frequently do I overhear students talking about almost getting grades lower than C's for all their classes in a semester. There are also quite a few students who choose to enroll, but never show up to classes. My thing is, if you don't want to learn, don't enroll in college.
I wish I had known that there were several scolarships and grants I could tap into in order for the program to have notbeen as stressful asit was.
The professionalism with the registration people must improve!
I believe those not prepared to work hard shouldn"t attend this school. TSU has something for everyone, from every walk of life, to feel at home. My time at TSU was not only challanging, it was fun, southern in every way. Those who attended TSU from other schol were glad to enbrace the "southern" way, it was so inviting, how can one describe it. Well, southern hospitality sums it up. TSU produced a proud, and productive person, and I am glad to say I am a TSU alum.
I really do not brag about my school but if I was to brag I would brag about our baseball team because they're good and they seem like the only team to win games and I would brag about the wonderful sorority I joined in Spring 09, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. I do have to say that the alumi at my school have a lot of school spirit when it comes to Homecoming. I would also brag about being independent by having my own car and apartment living away from home.
The stereotype of students at Texas Southern University is that they are lazy and will not leave this university equipped with the tools we need to succeed. No! This stereotype is NOT accurate.
I would say the most popular groups would be the fraternities and sororities. The PHPC is one of the great organizations at campus for all pre health professions. I'm more involved with the Honors College and PHPC. I met my closest friends when I most of my classes with them. If I'm awake at 2 am on a Tuesday, I would definitely be studying. I really don't get myself involved in any kind of parties, but I've seen that people do part at TSU. Last weekend, I was studying for my upcoming midterms.
As a psychology major, I believe that the academics are rigorous. The psychology department is continuously trying to bring in better teachers and expand the curriculum.
