Tennessee State University Reviews
Review Tennessee State University
I give Tennessee State three stars because my years there were up and down. My first two years, I had teachers that did not speak fluent English. It was very hard to understand them and for them to understand me. There were teachers who didn't care about helping the students. Once I got in my degree required classes, I was excited to go to school. I loved the teachers because they would teach exactly what were on the test. They taught what you needed to know versus teaching anything just to say they taught something! I learned so much in my last two years that I can use in my career!
Living in Wilson Hall is frustrating because the girls in this building do not know how to clean up after themselves. They leave trash everywhere, they never flush the toilet, and they are loud at crazy hours of the night. They especially never follow the rules. For example our quiet hours are from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. you don't have to be extremely quiet but quiet enough where the other girls can't hear you, but here they do not care what time it is they scream down the hallway and slam doors, play music real loud. They don't have respect for anyone else that lives here and it is very irritating especially for people that go to sleep or are studying. Another rule we have is to make sure when you take your trash out put it in the dumpster outside the basement. The girls can't even do that! They put it by there basement door, knowing that could bring bugs and rodents into the building. They would also put their personal trash in the bathroom trash can, when on the door it clearly says not to put it in there because the cleaning people won't take it out. It makes sense because the cleaning people are not responsible for throwing our trash away we are! The last rule is not to smoke in the building. First marijuana is illegal in Tennessee so they shouldn't be smoking it anyway, but of course they do. I'm not sure why because the smell of it is strong so it's easy to smell. All the rules that these girls break are affecting our visitation and the girls that deserve visitation don't get it because of the girls that break all the rules everyday.
I love the support systems for instruction and opportunities for career internships! Meal plans are overpriced, but I like the Dining Dollars.
