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!
Review Tennessee Technological University
There are plenty of courses to choose from, that is if you have time outside your major. The professors are always willing to help, and they are the best feature about Tennessee Tech. I believe one could not find better hands-on or more intelligent teachers anywhere else in this state. The class styles are generally a form of lecture, but they are engaging. Professors make an effort to entertain and motivate their students. The majority of music professors are great examples of how teachers should be as role models. I have, so far, loved my experience as a student inside their classrooms!
Besides New Hall North and New Hall South, the dorms are in gross condition. My dorm, Crawford Hall, has roaches in the unisex bathroom. The plusses are free WiFi! Each student gets their own login and password. The social atmosphere is actually kind of friendly. The RAs make an effort to put on housing events, but sometimes they seem corny. The actual housing process is stressful because of how costly it is. If you are a freshman, I suggest really working hard to save money to afford the ridiculously over-priced housing and meal plan.
