East Tennessee State University Reviews
Overall, I have been impressed with the type of experiences I have been able to receive at East Tennessee State University. As I am studying to be a future teacher, I have had many opportunities to work with young students at the University School on campus. This has allowed me to gain experience with students by actually doing my lesson plans with real students. Almost all of my professors have been enthusiastic and passionate about the content they have been teaching, which creates a more engaging classroom. The campus has many different options for food and entertainment, with weekly emails about upcoming events. With over 200 student clubs and organizations, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved on campus, make friends, and develop new skills!
East Tennessee State University is my new home away from home. I have intelligent professors who care about my success. There is always something to do on campus from movie nights to painting classes. ETSU is adamant about safety. I love the Safe Voyage program which offers free walks to and from class, dorms, or anywhere else on campus. While ETSU is still working on our football team, we do have a brand new stadium and an award-winning basketball team. I am very pleased with my stay at ETSU so far and cannot wait for the years to come. Go Bucs!
We had a very positive visit and the staff was very helpful. We also experienced a very friendly student body. The professors were willing to work with me on what classes best fit my needs. There were many opportunities for clubs and sports on several levels. The campus was clean and the dorms very accommodating. I feel that the ETSU experience is a very positive one that anyone can benefit from due to so many fields of study. The new sports complex will provide tons of fun for school spirit and school pride. In close, I feel that students looking for a smaller school that offers big things should take time to look at ETSU as an option. Go Bucks!
