Austin Peay State University Reviews
Austin Peay State University has given me the best experience in college. The campus is beautiful and provides so many opportunities for every student. My first semester at Austin Peay, I was so involved on campus that I was there every day of every week. I got involved at the Foy Fitness Center in an aerial silks class. I really appreciated that the two instructors were involved with each student and pushed each of us to the best of our abilities. I also got accepted into Sigma Kappa, the new sorority on campus. Being in Sigma Kappa was the one of the best things that had ever happened to me. It formed me into a social butterfly and allowed me to really help out in the community. The women of Sigma Kappa came together to host events with other sororities to bring people together for charity. Being at APSU has transformed my life in the most amazing ways. I will always cherish the memories I have and the memories I will continue to make while attending at Austin Peay. Go Govs!
I love Austin Peay! The community atmosphere is great! There is plenty of clubs and activities on campus. The one thing I would change is to offer diverse food options. As more and more people choose to live a healthier lifestyle, such as vegan or vegetarian, Austin Peay needs to be aware and offer food options to all.
I loved going to school at Austin Peay! But, I left to go elsewhere, because I decided that I wanted to do something different with my life. When I was attending, though, my professors were wonderful and very helpful. One of the heads of the Department of Education, Dr. Bruster, is a wonderful woman, and if you're going into education, she's the woman to talk to! The campus, though quite small, has a larger feel to it. The dorms in Sevier Hall were alright, but I had terrible suitemates, so I'm pretty sure that if you work out some sort of agreement at the beginning of the year, you'll be fine. The cafeteria food is great, with a wide variety of food to choose from, but if you don't want to eat in the caf, you can always go to one of the "restaurants" next to it. As far as safety goes, I always felt safe on campus. Everywhere I went, there were those little police poles as far as the eye could see, and I always saw at least 5 police officers walking around campus on my way to class.
