Tennessee Technological University Reviews
The campus is smaller than UTK so you can walk to class with ease. There are also shuttle buses that run routes around campus so if the weather is bad, you won’t be caught out in it if you ride them. The library has 2 floors open to students: the ground floor which consists of a café, IT, printers, computers, and group or solitary study areas, and the “quiet floor” which consists of bookshelves, the i cube (a really cool technology center with 3D printers and VR tech), and tables to study at. The fitness center is really nice, and they’re building a new one. There is some construction as of right now, and the projects are in varying degrees of completion. For the most part, the professors make an effort to be friendly and learn your name, and they actually care about you. All in all, a great public university!
I am loving being at Tenneessee Techanological University! The students are very accepting to new people and the professors are always willing to go the extra mile to help when I have a problem. I feel like by being a part of such a great educational community I am going to be able to make the transition into the working world with ease. I will always remember my time at university with fondess and respect and will encourage the youth after me to look at Tennessee Technological University when they are ready to continue their education.
I love the campus, professors, and overall atmosphere. So happy that I chose Tech to my home! So fr, all of my professors are willing to work with me on any issues that I have. The dooms I live in are great! The food has its good and bad days but overall it is pretty good. I really didn't want to go to a big party school and tech is just that. It is more academic based and that's what I love about it.
