Tusculum University Reviews
This is not really a liberal arts college. The sports, clubs, and other extracurriculars are sad. Professors are hit and miss. All of them are very nice, but a lot of them have unnecessary added responsibilities and/or teach classes on subjects that aren't quite in their wheelhouse. Campus security is also horribly unorganized and doesn't do much outside of giving you high parking tickets for reasons that are not always correct and taking forever to get to you to unlock your dorm room if you look yourself out. Their restrictions are very strange. The dorms are sub par. Many students are confused on what they need and the offices aren't much help. Plan on needing a car, there are no sidewalks going to many places, the school is separate from the rest of the town, there is a shuttle service but no one on campus really knows how it works or when it is running.
The scenery is gorgeous. Class sizes are small and allow for better engagement with the professors. The professors, most of them at least, do care that their students obtain their education. There have been frequent staffing changes at the college in the last few years however which can make things more difficult in regards to knowing who it is that one needs to speak with for advice.
This school is under poor administration, campus culture is overall negative and appears to be getting worse. But the professors, especially in the history department are great.
