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!
My tenure here at TenState has definitely been nothing but life experiences and lessons. There honestly isn't anything special about the University itself, the students is what makes TSU's experience. Tennessee State Univ. could stand to update their traditional policy of discrimination upon appearance (including professionally), be more diverse of professors who can relate regarding cultural classes, and be more tentative to it's students overall needs. I wouldn't necessarily recommend TSU unless on scholarship or if someone is already a TN resident.
