Tennessee State University Reviews
With Complete Honesty, I originally didn’t choose this HBCU due to rumors I heard. But once I got to the campus it was like rumors never existed because culturally speaking it’s truly like a family connection with whomever you come in contact with. Staff and administration included and I love that about TSU. I had a plan before for when I went in but after my freshman year I definitely knew I was going to stay at TSU all 4 years of my college career and I’m happy with my decision and no one will ever change that! #GOBIGBLUE
I love that my school is and HBCU and we are still diverse! Everybody is treated with fairness and you can find a friend anywhere on campus! We have events that go on through out the school year so it's never a dull moment. Campus police ride around all day to ensure we have safety. Our student section during games are the livest! The best part is we have a community service class that is mandatory which gives you the opportunity to get community service hours. Our mission statement is think, work, serve, so come and be great with us!
Tennessee State University is a well known hbcu. My first year was a roller coaster, the school can be very unorganized at times and the staff pick and choose when they want to help. If you are getting financial aid I would STRONGLY recommend making sure everything is taken care of before you get there or you could lose housing and or get “purged” or removed from your classes. Resulting in you having to wait a entire semester to start class. The dorms are small and you have visitation but that depends on if your RA decides you deserve it or not. More than likely you won’t have it. If you want to have a successful college career at Tennessee State University, you have to be very self disciplined and very focused or one wrong turn and everything is going all bad.
