I like the U of Memphis. I fell in love with the campus, the cleanliness and the safety most importantly. Its super convenient to my family and for students alike. I felt they tried hard to ensure your aware of your safety and they were aware of your safety and that you were a human being not just a number on campus. I felt the U of Memphis has put great effort into a majority of their programs and and their success rates speak for themselves. Their programs prepare you to work that profession with the utmost capability.
I really like the University of Memphis because it is close to home. They offer a variety of classes and majors. The campus is very nice and the advising staff is excellent. The class sizes aren't too large and the professors are usually available by email.
Overall, the University of Memphis is a nice campus. You have ample opportunities to learn, meet new people, and stay connected with your health.
The University of Memphis is a wonderful school to attend. From my first day up until now, I have really learned a lot and enjoyed the "campus life" even with a pandemic happening. There are so many great opportunities and organizations that you will fit right in and have a great time.

If I could go back to my senior year I would become more involved in my school. I would join as many organizations as possible, go on as many trips as I could, go to every sports event, and I would live it up as much as I could while I still had the free time. Now that I'm a full time college student I'm always busy. The grown up stage has taken full effect. I work, go to class, do homework, sleep and repeat. Sometimes I can even go all day without remembering to eat because I'm so busy. I miss the free time I once had. While I was in high school, everyone was worried about the latest drama and who's talking about who. If I could go back I would tell myself that these people and the drama that I'm worried about now won't matter a year from now, so have fun while you still can. Too soon you'll be looking back on your high school years and realize they were some of the best and most important years of your life.
The campus offices (Financial Aid, Registrar, Admissions, etc.) are far too bureaucratic and do not seem to communicate with each other. The student is expected to find out how things work and solve his own problems with little or no help from any of the offices.
My classmates are very outgoing and open minded people.
My school is the most diverse, social, and business-minded school that I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
The worst thing about Memphis is parking. Its a fairly big campus but parking is horrible. There are so many students on campus this year but we have nowhere to park. We get parking tickets all the times. And if we don't pay them we get HOLDS, which prevent us from registering and receiving our transcripts. They just need to invest in more parking space.
One who is very focused on getting an education. Even though many students are non traditonal i dont recommend it.
get involved in as much as you can handle and how bad the traffic is.
People that are lazy and do not like to do any work they should not attend this university.
Our school is best known for its sports teams and athletic departments-- basketball, football, intramurals, the list goes on. Our students are very supportive of all of our sports teams. We have student sections that travel across the nation along with our sports teams to cheer them on.
most students who go to this school love their sports teams and try to support all of the teams.
The university of memphis is better, because their nursing program has a higher percentage of passing the NCLEX the first time than UT Martin. Also I had a brother graduate from here, it made my mother feel a lot better about me attaining an education here. This way I could have some insight on what to expect.
The professors in the social sciences. They are very knowledgeable and are always willing to share the knowledge with the students. There are actually many professors who do not seek to fail students. They are always willing to help inside and outside of class.
There does not seem to be a stereotype at this school. There are incoming high schoolers and adult students alike.
The best thing about this school, that I feel gets over looked a lot is the fact that we are a top institution. We have one of the top Law schools in the Nation, along with a top 100 Business Program. If your looking for a easy ride, its not here at the University of Memphis. This school will challenge yourself to become better. That is why I love this University. Our school has around 22,000 so if you feel like you want a big time atmosphere then you get that here, along with the small school feel, because people commute to school as well. The school pride here is incredible; I mean turn on a Memphis basketball game and that should answer your question. One main thing about the University is that the historic Beale Street is a matter of ten minutes away, some people travel just to see Beale and you will be so close to it every single night.
The most popular student groups would definitley be the Fraternities and Sororities. We have 11 IFC (interfraternal council) chapters here along with 6 PAN(panhellenic) chapters and the Divine 9 NPHC chapters. Greeks aren't as big here at the University like some SEC schools, but we also are no where near as expensive either. Since being Greek I have become involved with so many other organizations, because the fact I am Greek and more people know my face on this campus. I encourage all students to go Greek, because it gives you that sense of family when you are not with your actual family. An OG is an Orientation Guide, the people you will be with the most when you make your official visit to the University of Memphis. These could become your best friends because they are students just like you and they will tell you everything you need to know about this University. It is especially hard to become an OG as well; they only pick the best of the best student leaders on this campus to become OG's. Another great organization we have here is Frosh Camp. Frosh Camp is a camp during the summer that is put on by the university where only a selected counselors are chosen for this, because these student leader counselors are going to make bonds with incoming freshmen that will last them their entire college career. For more detail about Frosh Camp just ask. The last organization that is huge on Campus, would have to be Up Til' Dawn. The University of Memphis is just miles away from the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We work with St. Jude personally and raise money for the kids each year. It is a rewarding experience because you get to actually see the help you are doing for those kids battling cancer. I think that is one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life.
Now the athletic events are insane, people love the Memphis Tigers here. We have one of the most storied athletic programs in the country. We have a top 20 basketball team. The number 3 womens soccer team. etc. the list goes on.
What is there to do off campus? Well a lot of students like going down to Beale street to grab a bite to eat and look at the beautiful Mississippi river along the river front. (great place to take a date). Or just head over to the FedEx forum and catch a Grizzlies game. The things you can do off campus is incredible. I love this University.
People love the athletics here at the University. Sports is something we pride ourselves on at Memphis. We love to win, which we do in a lot of sports, also the atmosphere is incredible here.
Well to be honest my classes are quite simple to me, some are challenging but if you attend class in college there is no reason you shouldn't receive anything lower than a C.
They're stupid hicks
