What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is a great school! at first I was nervous to be in the city, but really as long as you are safe and someone knows where you are at all times, you'll be okay. It's hot there in the summers, but the majority of the school year isn't all that bad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is an excellent college for anyone to continue their education at. It has a variety of different options for majors, their food choices are excellent, the advisers and staff are consistent, and the students are helpful as well. Moreover, this is the only school close to home that offers both majors I am interested in, which further enhances my acceptance of the school. I am more than excited to attend this college in the fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being a student not from Tennessee, it was hard for me at the University of Memphis. A lot of the students who attend the college are from the Memphis area, so on the weekends, the campus is completely dry and isolated. If you do not have a way to get around, you may spend a lot of your college experience in your dorm room. There is not a lot outside/around the campus to do, unless you again have a car and can drive places. Depending on what you're involved in, a lot of the extracurriculars are not very inclusive, unless you are an Orientation guide, frosh camp counselor, or in Student Activities Committee. The food on campus is not good and has made a lot of people sick. The library is very welcoming and quiet, and is a great place for studying. The rec center is nice, but it is across the train tracks which are also very annoying because the train runs through campus all day and is very loud. When it comes to safety, gun shots have gone off by or on campus multiple times throughout the year. Campus police responds but students talk about it happening like it is a normal thing and are not genuinely concerned for their safety. Be careful at parties as well, there have been people who have gotten held at gunpoint and robbed, and there have been people who have charged into parties shooting. When it comes to my specific major and the sociology classes, the professors are very nice and super informative, and the classes are not difficult. A lot of people who aren't from Memphis or Tennessee end up transferring from this school, so if a lot of this is alarming or you feel like you would be in this position, this is not the school for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I recommend this school because if you're for diversity; you will find it here. If you love music and theater they have great programs to join. The have also over 100 organizations you can joined and also you can make your organizations with just a couple of members. However, the University of Memphis in general is great place of study because the professors want to help and will do anything to help you succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is a slightly above average school. You feel safe during the day, but at night I wouldn't go out alone or out much. It's a dry campus, so there aren't any parties on campus, but there are block-parties that you have to be careful at around campus. We have frats and sororities, but they aren't a big thing. Our football team is celebrated and there are many opportunities for extracurriculars. Two programs I would HIGHLY recommend would be the First Generation Living Learning Community and the Student Success Program, TRIO General. I have participated in both and they have been a huge help, providing me support and resources for my success in school, especially TRIO!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis has definitely become my home away from home. Ever since I first stepped foot on campus I have loved every second. There are many places to eat on the campus, and a lot of healthy options. The dorms and facilities are very nice and make me feel safe. Everyone has to check in at a desk in order to enter the rooms. There are so many things to do on campus and so many different people to meet. Unlike a lot of schools Greek life is not the main organization. Students are able to find a club or group that fits their liking. University of Memphis also has fantastic teachers that are there for their students. If you are needing help there are many places that you can go to receive the help you need. Everything you need is available to you, just like you are at home. Tigers are family and Memphis is home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is a great school with very encouraging people. The school is good with informing students with current campus activities, issues, and successes. Memphis has been ranked as one of the most economically segregated cities in the US. On one end of the street there is an up to date mansion, on the other side is an old tiny bungalow. The University of Memphis is a microcosm of the city. Some of the buildings are very up to date and the others are quite old and need to be renovated. There is a variety of food options on campus and there are some good restaurants walking distance from the perimeter of the campus. It is also a 10-15 minute drive to the zoo and the Brooks Art Museum.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am slowly getting attached to the U of M! The academics are awesome and professors are awesome. I haven't experienced much social life, but there are plenty of things to do on campus! Nice, fun, and warming environment to be in. I can't wait to call myself an alumni of the University of Memphis!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classes have been fairly engaging. The options for eating are good and plenty, although the lines still can be long. I have met some outstanding administration support like Steven Mizell. He has gone out of his way to help me feel at home and get me plugged in during my first year, as I just moved from Las Vegas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Memphis. It's a great school that gets a bad rap by people who don't go to it. The business college is really great with lots of extra opportunities for students to participate in such as the Complete Professional Program, all of the business clubs, and the MILE program.
