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.

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.
