This is my second year at APSU, and I love It! It's big enough for the "college experience" yet small enough to where you can walk anywhere you need to be in less than 10 minutes. The professors are amazing, especially through the Education Department. I would definitely recommend anyone to apsu who is wanting a good college experience without the hassle of a huge tuition amount.
The dorms and apartments are great! Until a student who is paying his/her own way through college sees the cost of the cheapest dorm is as much as their tuition! This is a big reason a large percentage of students commute. Also, people who have lived or are living on campus have said "good luck..." after mentioning living on campus next semester. The distance from class is not too bad unless you live in an apartment, which are on the edge of the campus. Overall, if the prices dropped to even two-thirds of my tuition, then I would definitely consider living on campus. Until then, just like me, many others will continue to commute everyday.
Austin Peay State University is a great school. They offer many different programs to meet the needs of many of their students. They have a vast amount of activities to do around the campus. Their athletic teams are very good when they compete and train hard to win. The campus is full of places to feel like you are home like Starbucks, and a bookstore. You can even sit down and have a coffee break at a near cafe. Their education programs are outstanding and they offer many great majors and minors for all students. People come from everywhere around the country to go to school at Austin Peay.
