Middle Tennessee State University Reviews
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.
I will be attending for the first time in January 2020. I have a family friends who have already graduated and who are attending and have completely fell in love with the campus and the college environment it brings to each student. I have been to the campus countless number of times, and had my official tour a few months ago, and fell in love with it even more. The staff is super friendly and there are many ways to get involved. I am so excited to start this next journey of mine in January!
Middle Tennessee State university, what a phenomenal college you are! I am an international student coming all the way from The Bahamas and with this being said i thought that it was going to be a difficult change for me. But it wasn’t! This university made me feel like i was home when i was hundreds of miles away! I had the most amazing roommate, the food was delicious and the professors i had was the best! I managed to achieve a 3.53 which is the deans list and this is an achievement to me because not many people can do that! Although i have a downfall of $10,000 a semester, MTSU offers many scholarships and hopefully one of them will be for an international student like me! Thank you MTSU!
