I love the environment at TSU. Everyone is super helpful and friendly. Since I'm an international student a lot of people helped during this 3 years. But I would like to see and increased safety and security on campus. Almost every semester something terrible is happening on campus. I understand that some things can't be prevented, but to see the university trying their best to protect their students would be nice.
I love my school did graduate and undergraduate here! This is the only public university in Nashville so prices are really inexpensive compared to elsewhere! Super diverse and wonderful well knit community!
