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.
My overall experience has been stressful. Tennessee Technological University's individual colleges are great, but the administration is terrible. They have not given enough attention to what the student body demands. They have ignored our cries for a better parking system and to make administration pay their fair share of parking fees. The financial aid department gives students barely enough to survive the semester, and they do not seem to care that each student is drowning in debt. I would only recommend coming here for an individual college. The professors are amazing and very hands-on! They are the only ones doing this money hungry school justice!
