Tennessee State University Reviews
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!
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!
Tennessee State University is a very unique historically black university. The alumni and fan base is incomparable. Although the school is predominately black, I would never discourage someone of a different race from attending the university. The learning experience is true to all cultures, including every race in every subject studied. The curriculum is fair and extremely beneficial. I wouldn't recommend someone who is accustom to living in a wealthy setting to live on campus.
