The campus was pretty easily accessible to find your way around with the plus being the many amenities (bookstore, Starbucks, tigerstore, etc.). I truly enjoyed being a UofM sudent!

The academics were challenging enough and at a graduate level to well prepare a future health professional student to be competent in their field of study. I enjoyed the professors enthusiasm for teaching and their willingness to help us achieve great things!
Fall 2019 was my first semester attending the university. I really came to the university not knowing really what to expect because only time I visited was for orientation so I really did not get to fully explore the campus. When the semester finally started I was really thinking that I never wanted It to end. Choosing Memphis State as my school was in fact the best choice that I have made. I love the classes, professors, and all the different things available to us on campus.
