What is your overall opinion of this school?

I prefer the rural life- plain and simple. The University of Memphis, however, has opened my mind up to a ton of different opportunities that the city offers to people. On one hand the amenities and resources of the city and university are abundant, and on the other hand the country lifestyle has not fled from the vernacular, for example, or the cuisine. It really is the best of both worlds. The teachers express this merge as well. My classes, politically, all have not swayed entirely left or entirely right- the teachers are diverse and offer viewpoints (that must be heard!) from both sides. While I may disagree with many decisions made by the governing body of the University of Memphis in terms of financials, I understand the need for the college to grow into areas of Memphis that suffer from blight in efforts to expand education. To any incoming freshman or prospective student, I personally have enjoyed my time so far at the University of Memphis and recommend this college to city and country folk alike!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it's a very nice and diverse place to be, whether you're in the UC or in class or just kicking it, its always somewhere for students to chill and enjoy free time, there is wifi everywhere on campus including across the street in the on campus living. Overall University of Memphis is a great school. Even at night the campus is lit up making it safer, but I still don't recommend walking alone just for your own safety

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's such a big clean campus, everybody is nice and always smiling. The classes are great to take there and clean. and the activities are so fun. There are always handsome athletic boys running around the campus so that's a lovely view to see. Campus security is always around and so is police polls if there is trouble happening.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Memphis does not discriminate against students, employees, or applicants for admission or employment on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, disability, age, status as a protected veteran, genetic information, or any other legally protected class with respect to all employment. The UofM is just like any other school, we provide lots of oppentunatis for our students.

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!
