I haven't even started my first day here at MTSU but I'm already impressed with this school as a whole. The people are very nice and everybody in the Murfreesboro area has MTSU school spirit. As I walk around the campus and tour the school, I always get amazed at how far ahead MTSU's Media & Entertainment building is compared to my old school, University of Memphis. The Student Union building is placed perfectly on campus and has a lot of upscale qualities like the game room, book store, and the restaurants. This campus makes me feel like I'm at home while I'm away from my real home in Memphis, TN. I will cherish everyday I spend at this university!
Review Middle Tennessee State University
This university provides incredible resources to its students. The library alone has had every single book that I have ever needed. Yes, even the ones needed for certain classes! Despite its large campus, it is the simplest school to maneuver-- I have never gotten lost, even when I was new! Please consider MTSU if you want a beautiful campus to call home, wonderful professors, and great learning opportunities.
Everyone is friendly and has a chance to be heard. Clubs and organizations are being added, so long as it: 1) Is not offensive; 2) Has a leader; 3) Has at least 6 members. Police are patrolling around. I had an asthma attack at the KUC a few weeks back. A campus officer was on the scene within minutes. Our football, soccer and baseball teams are forces not to be reckoned with. The fun times over the weekend are exceptional. I am proud to be true blue. Go Blue Raiders!
