Texas Southern University Reviews

My experience at TSU has been extravagant and it was made possible by the associates/faculty and staff that complete their tasks to ensure that students get the assistance they need. To continue such efforts, improvements in areas such as protection and security, much can be done. One solution could be to put officer offices in all department building for a more rapid response in case a hazardous situation were to occur. Another improvement I would like to see is more cameras in our parking garages on every floor. My reason for that is my personal incident, involving a hit-in- run on the 3rd floor. I was in class when the incident occurred so it seemed like finding the suspect will be no help. My bumper and grill of the car was dented and with no cameras around to see who hit me, only a compliant was filed and calls to my insurance provider was my option. Those are some of the improvements I would like to see for such an established institution!

My experience with Texas Southern University has been more than expected. I love my professors for being more than just teachers. They want you to succeed in life and understand the importance of an education and having pride in being a part of a HBCU. I am proud to be a student of TSU.
The campus and neighborhood is improving daily but there is still much to be accomplished in the area as far as living. But in the end, I would not choose any other school for my education, Tiger Pride!
I am currently a junior in college and graduated from Lone Star College with an associates degree. I transferred to Texas Southern University and I would like to share my personal experience about the HBCU (Historical Black Colleges & Universities). This is the perfect school for incoming freshman's as well as transfer students. Texas Southern provide many social events such as hump day (every Wednesday): dress to impress, music, meeting new people, and sororities and fraternities strolling throughout the campus yard. The cafeteria food is very unique for example, Mondays the dinning hall serves their fried chicken specialty and Fridays fried catfish with seafood. Also, Texas Southern have many options the students can choose from Chick-Fil-A to Pizza Hut, depending on what you are craving. I think the food is outside the box even though I am aware of other colleges providing the same or more, but lets remember I am speaking about the college I attend.
