Went for a semester before deciding on a career path change and dropping out, may return if it seems cost effective.
My experience at Austin Peay has been very good so far. I am only a freshman and this first semster has been challenging I find it easy to get help on campus. It is also super easy to get involved to help make the college experience more fun and enjoyable.
I have had so much fun at Austin Peay! I was so nervous about going far away from home for college but Austin Peay has been so welcoming. I have made so many new friends and there are so many clubs that you can join. I joined a sorority and it has been the best decision ever. The teachers at Austin Peay really want to see you succeed and I just love the school so much!
Austin Peay State University is a great university with countless opportunities for its students. With a diverse student body and interactive professors, there is no shortage of experiences to gain and pathways to discover.
Small town feel with a big community! Class options are great. Small class sizes and professors care about your future!
I had a wonderful experience as an undergraduate at APSU. The staff, professors, and my counselor were always helpful in any way they could be. I enjoyed the beauty of the campus and the ease of access to the library. I love to learn and my professors helped that love for knowledge grow even more. I was able to make friends fairly easily and really appreciated the campus security. I would highly recommend Austin Peay State University to anyone looking to become a part of a university family.
Apsu is a very supportive school with a very supportive community. The professors are knowledgeablw and willing to help whenever it is needed.
I enjoy the courses, and my professors. My advisor is loving and extremely helpful. My only critique is the apsu 1000 course, it is great for students who live on campus and those who are searching for a “traditional college experience;” however, I feel that this course is a waste of my time. It is a class required for all incoming freshman, but I have been told most colleges/universities have a similar course.
I enjoy my experience. I am half online and half in person . I love that I can do this because some classes I don’t feel comfortable taking online but I get so much more done in an efficient manner when I have online classes.
I really like it here however our degree programs are lacking in versatility and, to be honest, there isn’t much room for growth in the town.
The staff at austin peay is committed to creating a academically challenging and encouraging environment. There were many events held by the school that allows for students to connect to one another and to have a good time.
Campus is easy to get around. People are very friendly and student life is fun. Offers good classes; there is a broad amount if choices for study. Different clubs And communities are cool.
Overall my time at APSU has been productive. I found parking to be a consistent issue, but the classes offered were well developed and comprehensive. The professors have been wonderful and helpful in times of need.
So far it has been good. It's a change from high school but not in a bad way. College has to be taken a lot more serious than high school and that could be a very rough awakening but stay on top of your work and you're solid. There is always something going on at campus and always something for students to get involved with and so many people to meet.
What I like about the campus is that it has a lush number of trees on site with the added bonus of a cat colony that lives there. It's a decent sized campus, but still small enough where you can commute in a mere five minutes if your classes are on opposite sides of campus. The location is also near the downtown area that allows for a wide array of choices if students decide to eat off campus or have a scenic walk in the area. However, there is very limited parking for commuters that was recently cut even smaller. The only way to secure a decent space is to either have late evening courses or arrive there very early in the morning. So hopefully in the coming years Austin Peay State University will expand parking to hold more commuters or give back spaces to commuters from the small number of staff at the establishment. A pungent smell can also be smelled from campus that comes from the sewers on random days, so if anyone has a sensitive sense of smell that is something to be wary of.
Austin Peay is very diverse and has increíble professors. The fact that it’s such a small school gives you the opportunity to stand out and seek help when needed
Despite the challenges, online college has been an incredible experience. The flexibility it offers is truly a game-changer. Being able to study from the comfort of my own home has made it so convenient and has allowed me to create a schedule that works best for me. The interactive virtual classes have been a pleasant surprise. I've had the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions with classmates and professors, and the online platform has fostered a sense of collaboration and connection. It has been a unique and enriching journey that has not only expanded my knowledge in my chosen field but also equipped me with valuable digital skills that are highly relevant in today's world. I am truly grateful for the opportunities and growth that online college has provided me. It has opened doors and allowed me to pursue my education in a way that fits my lifestyle. My only con is the communication sometimes lacks on both sides (student and faculty).
