What is your overall opinion of this school?

Staff are always friendly and professors are willing to do whatever they can to help you do well if you put in the work. Lots of free services including a doctor's office and their own buses and lots to do both on and off campus. The campus and all the buildings are always clean, the food's great wherever you go, and I've always felt safe here, even at night. There's a service where you can have someone walk you to your car at night, and the nearest police station is literally in the parking lot with buttons across campus to call them if you need help. The only thing that's a problem is parking, which will make you late to earlier classes at least once, and the train which is so notorious for making people late that most professors won't even knock you for it. The short version: Great university with caring staff. A few flaws that are more than made up for by everything else they do for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is a highly diversified school that is filled with numerous opportunities. The teachers are wonderful. The security on and off campus are great. Its a safe environment and there's a sense of security. There are many student activities and campus activities. It's a friendly environment and I would definitely tell everyone to take the school in consideration to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Originally, I didn’t plan on attending the University of Memphis. I was a transplant from West Texas, and all I wanted to do was finish up my senior year and move back home. Things don’t always work out like you plan though, and Memphis very quickly grew on me. I fell in love with the city, and made the decision to stay here for school, made all the more exciting the more I learned about the school. I visited the campus for the first time after I had already been accepted, and I remember thinking that it was absolutely beautiful. My hometown is dry and empty, so the trees and architecture around the campus were impressive to me. Everything looked new and well-designed, and the tour guide showing me around listed off impressive fact after impressive fact. He told my group all about the history of the school; for example, did you know that the University of Memphis was given its colors (blue and grey) after the Civil War to promote unity between the North and South? Or that Elvis Presley himself regularly gave money to the school because of his love for the city? The guide also bragged about the school’s impressive safety record, and how highly ranked the law school is (which is important to me as a future law student). Previously, I was doubtful of my decision to stay in Memphis over returning to Texas, but each time I went to the school my decision was reaffirmed. Now that I’m an actual student, I love my teachers and classes, I’ve made lifelong friends, and I’m still learning more about the city and school. No school is perfect, but the University of Memphis has gotten closer than I ever thought a college could.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I moved to Memphis in 2005 to go to the University of Memphis. It was an amazing experience for me. I am originally from a small rural town and the University of Memphis opened my eyes to a variety or people, cultures, food and so much more. I had the opportunity to study abroad during my third year. It was the first time I had ever been on a plane. I'm not sure I would have had that experience and grown as a person if I hadn't moved here and attended the University of Memphis.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the students are nice, but the teachers can be pretty rough. Especially in the chemistry building, only a handful of them care about your education. The facilities are nice, but the area around the school is not safe. There is a lot of crime. I started out hating the school and now I am just putting up with it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Coming from someone who hated high school-- I love The University of Memphis. Being able to surround myself with wonderful people on a daily basis on campus is truly a blessing. We really do have the kindest people in the whole world, from the teachers, to the students, to the campus officers, and even the crossing guards-- they are just marvelous. or academics are also very good, not on a Vanderbilt level or anything, but they are quite good. I believe that a student who puts 100% effort in to the UofM will greatly benefit from the education that is provided. Ultimately, if I could choose again, I'd still choose to be a Memphis Tiger!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I overall feel like the UofM is a good school, there aren’t perfect teachers, but some professors are really dedicated to teaching and making sure you’re perfect. The professors that I have go step by step in their lessons and will walk around to ask any problems that you may have while doing you’re work. The on-campus living is decent, there are the good and bads, and I moreover prefer a single room and not a double space. I would suggest a double space only if you know who you’d be dealing with. Whereas I would recommend this university to anyone because the teachings are great, it’s easy to get to know your professors, and you get to meet new people. Besides education, there are plenty of opportunities to do off-campus things such as joining groups that you’re interested in. I’ve joined the Chi Alpha Christian religious group, and they are supportive and honest. This group is diverse, likes to have fun, and make sure you get tutored about the Bible. There are other groups if you aren’t really a religious fan, such as fraternities and sororities. The fraternities and sororities usually put out events that they are creating and it’s a way to experience what the somewhat party life is about. If you are an independent student and you must pay your way through college, there are many deals to help you out. The university has work study positions and even other jobs if you aren’t an independent student. I would say the food area, the university center, is a bit lazy. The foods on the first couple of weeks of school are always hot and prepared, but it seems after weeks later the food is not cooked and ready and they give you food that’s maybe sat there for hours, which is annoying. Other than that, I recommend the University of Memphis, just make sure you budget your money wisely because if you don’t, you’ll go broke quickly if you don’t have a job!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is one of the friendliest campus' there is. There is help in any region or area of campus and even classes. There are communities that welcome any incoming freshmen or transfer students. In addition, the environment feels just like home away from home; go Tigers!

Big campus with small town feel, centered in the middle of good neighborhoods, close to a lot of things to do. Your education here is what you make of it. Opportunities abound if your willing to do the work. Teachers are always available and willing to help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis is a very diverse campus, which encourages and challenges students to think outside the box. It fosters to academic excellence and growth opportunities, it also has a wide range of disciplines in which students can study and most importantly it is very affordable. Its centrally located to a vast number of restaurants and parks, its close to downtown yet far enough from hustle and bustle of a big city.
