Middle Tennessee State University Reviews
I'm a freshman at MTSU and so far I've been loving it! Both students and professors on campus are so nice and helpful so I've had no problems adjusting to college life here. Overall, I'd say this is a great college to go to and would definitely recommend it to everyone! Professors always have the students best interests in mind and will do all they can to help you pass.
Ever since i transferred to MTSU two years ago, I have loved it! I have had very positive relationships and interactions with most of my professors. If you get the right professors, don't be afraid to go and ask them questions on things that you are unsure about. My adviser, and many other advisers are wonderful and really take the time to help you move forward throughout the years you are there The only thing that I have had trouble with are the financial aid and scholarship requirements, however most have to do with the government and no the school it self.
Middle Tennessee State University offers 300 or more undergraduate and graduate degrees of study in diverse disciplines that prepare students for high demand jobs or careers. MTSU has one of the best aerospace programs in the country. MTSU offers six areas of concentration in the program. There is Aviation Management, Aerospace Technology, Flight Dispatch, Maintenance Management, Professional pilot and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operations. The MTSU Aerospace faculty represents a wide range of experience and education. MTSU is like a close-knit community. The buildings are all within the same vicinity. MTSU is located near downtown Murfreesboro enclosed in its own area. It is also close to Nashville. Also because all the buildings and dormitories are located close to each other, you see people you know everyday while walking to and from class. I have met so many people from all over and have made life long friends. I love attending MTSU and would highly recommend it.
