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.
Being a current freshman at MTSU, I can say that I am developing well into the school. The college experience for me is coming to life as I meet new people, expand my knowledge and learn the next phases of the world and their meanings. As I work to pursue my dreams, I plan to take the full advantage of every opportunity given to me at hand. My education is key to my future, so it is key that success is not only for me but those under who look to me as a positive and great role model. It feels great being looked up to from others than yourself. I have come to far to give up now and have no intentions to. I Am True Blue!
Love MTSU most days! People are for the most part so nice, and so are the professors. My biggest concern however is how the administration handles things. At times they can be very disorganized. Also there is little to no on campus life. Tailgating is kinda lame and no one every goes to the football games. So a lot of people don't find a connection with the school in that way. But for the most part, the students are great and well rounded people.
