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.

Austin Peay is a great college to get your associates or bachelors degree at. Most of the professors are willing you help you out, and free tutoring is always offered. There are always things going around on campus, so if you have to stay in a dorm you won't be bored! Next to the university there are little places to get eat and have fun. All in all it's a great place for a 4 year degree.
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.
