Fisk University Reviews
Fisk University is a wonderful school. It is small and confined that everyone knows each other and has some type of relationship with one another. Everyone at Fisk seems to work as a family. Every family has a combination of personalities and attitudes and majority of the campus knows how to mix in well. There were never any bad stories being told to me before I arrived as a freshman and I still have not heard nor witnessed anything bad about Fisk. The education department here is fantastic and it keeps someone challenged and focused.
The school itself is illustrious and its name gives you a lot of motivation, however the atmosphere with the students and some professors isn't the greatest. The administration is never on the right page with one another causing many problems for majority of the university.
Fisk has been amazing to me. Ever since I was younger Fisk was all I knew, being that my mother attended and graduated from the university back in 2000. When i first got to Fisk I didn't really like it being that it was really traditional and wasn't really modern. However it grows on you. You grow to appreciate the connections you gain from the teachers and students, and how everyone wants whats best for you no matter if they know you or not. Fisk is my family away from home and I love and appreciate all they've done for me thus far.
