Austin Peay State University Reviews
Review Austin Peay State University
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.
Overall, the school is a very good school. Tuition isn't through the roof. I will say my best choice before registering for classes would be to go to "rate my professor." I learned the hard way by just choosing a class and completely wishing i hadnt taken the class. Its always good to hear what other people's advice is, so your able to take heed what is being told to you or your able to use that new knowledge to your advantage. Just enjoy college, its an experience in life you can't forget. Always have your grades and school work come first and you will succeed!
