Middle Tennessee State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
It was a big suit case school so most people went home on the weekend. As far as academics I think I would have chosen another school as it just reminded me of high school. I did not really learn how to get a job in my field.
MTSU was a great school. I loved the professors, student activities and the local area.
MTSU is a decent school. The science program however was mediocre at best. Facility was outdated and professors all seemed burned out. However, I have heard that the new science building is "amazing."
Middle Tennessee State University is a very diverse school and the College of Education does prepare future teachers for jobs in the school system. Candidates see a wide range of schools environments and are able to observe many teachers that are professional and proficient in their field of expertise.
MTSU has grown in the 7 years I was there for both undergraduate and graduate school. Most of the administrative staff is helpful. Faculty is touch and go depending on the department. Student excitement and involvement is lacking compared to other big public universities in the state.
I went here because it was local and I had a full scholarship. The college experience is really what you make it, though. The one problem was that the administration didn't care enough about students and spent a lot more money on fundraising and campus aesthetics than the actual programs.
The I/O Program at MTSU was great. The professors were very helpful and the campus is great. Parking is a hassle, but I imagine it's like that at most big schools. There is a bus system that works pretty well though that I used for a lot of my time there.
I had an overall good experience at MTSU. I believe that the psychology department is a well liked machine and I appreciate doing most of those classes online. I was rather disappointed in my minor and the dance department. There were a lot of politics that weren't needed and it was simply a mediocre dance program that was not given the room to grow into something better. I did appreciate my time with certain dance instructors but overall feel that the department needs a complete overhaul and more support by the school.
MTSU is a great university. They have one of the top mass communications programs and that's what my degree was in. I felt like all my teachers held real life experience in my field and always gave real world scenarios in class, which helped me a lot upon my graduation.
I would've been better suited for a smaller, private school in a more culturally diverse area.
If I could start over and HAD to choose a different degree, I'd probably do something in neuroscience, so what would that be? Biology, I suppose.
Take a year off before going to college.
