East Tennessee State University Reviews
Review East Tennessee State University
East Tennessee State University has become my second home. I am from a small town in Virginia so Johnson City Tennessee was quiet the change for me. I am entering my fourth semester of classes at ETSU and to this day every student, faculty, and staff member has been nothing but helpful and friendly. I have learned so many things under amazingly talented professors. The academics of this campus are top notch. This is a wonderful four year university, with many highly rated graduate programs as well. East Tennessee State University could make anyone feel at home. Go Bucs!
The location and environment around campus was great! Always something to get into. Some classes are okay, others the professors seem to care less and don't teach you as well as you need. I would love to see better professors and more ways to transition students into high school. For the most part I really enjoy East Tennessee State University. Also professors should be people we can understand and not ones with thick accents from other countries, makes it very hard to understand things!
I am a 41 year old Freshman and I am starting my second term at ETSU. As a not-traditional student, going to school was nerve-racking at first, but it quickly goes away. From what I have witnessed so-far, most of the professors/instructors have been caring and willing to work with you. If you need help, then ask before it is too late. If you wait until the the last week of the term and then ask for help, then forget it. It won't happen. They will tell you this in the beginning. Buddy up with someone in class! If you know you are going to be absent, then see about copying notes and return the favor. Be responsible and show up to class, and in most cases, you will do fine. Classes that use GA's can be a little frustrating, but communication is the key.
