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 absolutely love attending Texas Southern University and recommend it to anyone. When i first got here i was a little worried i would be out of my comfort zone but everyone here makes you feel welcomed no matter where you are from, race or ethnicity. The atmosphere is so fun everyone is all about enjoying themselves but the same people you see out there having a blast are the people who are doing big and great things for the University. Everyone is focused on their education and furthering their knowledge to become successful. As an HBCU we all come together to support black excellence. I highly recommend anyone to come here because im so glad i did and i hope i still have the opportunity to come back because financially wise i might not be able to but i know everything will work out the way its supposed to!
I love attending Texas Southern University! This will be my third year going to school here as well as my third year Cheerleading for TSU. My school has an amazing amount of culture and spirit that it's shown throughout all of campus. I love to wake up everyday and walk on our famous tiger walk. Along the way you can find everything you need and let's not forget students stand out and set trends by being themselves because whoever you are you will be accepted at this school. The professors here really want to see their students learn and grow! If there is one this I would change it's the food options we currently have on campus. But I know TSU will soon be making changes. My school grows and gets better everyday and I would not take back one second of my college experience because without it I wouldn't be the person I am today so I would just like to thank TSU for pushing me and watching me succeed because the only way is up! LETS GO TIGERS
