Middle Tennessee State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (22)
Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) is a good school to attend full-time and in person. The local area is great for college students with plenty of nightlife, affordable living, and a major city (Nashville) not far away. The teachers at MTSU are more than willing to help their students and I was able to experience a number of quality mentors in my time there.
Middle Tennessee State University is a great environment to pursue secondary education. As I progressed through my college career, the classes got smaller allowing for student-teacher relationship, as well as closer bonds between students. Parking was challenging, however, buses were provided to aid quick transition across campus. My favorite thing about MTSU was the James E. Walker library; long hours, computer/printer access, comfortable environment, and tutoring made it an excellent place to get work done while on campus. Financial aid is generally accessible, apply for all opportunities! One thing I was not particularly satisfied with was the advisors. Many of my friends and I ended up having to take extra classes to complete our degrees, so always review tentative plans yourselves. Overall, Middle Tennessee State University provides a great education along with countless networking opportunities.
Great School. Classes are sometimes hard to come by depending on your major. Professors for the most part are kind and always willing to help and wanting to see their students succeed in life. The campus has many resources available for students to take advantage of. Overall you get out what you put in.
MTSU was a great education experience. As a nontraditional adult student, I found the courses challenging, and the opportunities for engaging stimulating. I would not have found the career I enjoy with the State of Ohio were it not for my B.S. from Middle Tennessee State University. I am forever proud to be True Blue.
The Aerospace Administration program at MTSU is one of the best in the country. The professors were super knowledgeable, and always available for advisement and general help. I wish I would have chosen the pro pilot concentration, because that is my true passsion, but the Aerospace Admin program has proven to be a good boost to my career.
I am currently an undergraduate at Middle Tennessee State University. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed the courses that I have taken and the professors. It is a beautiful campus with numerous opportunities available. The classroom sizes vary between 30 - 100+ students; my largest class that I have had so far was about 105+, which was for A&P I. The smaller class sizes allows for you to ask questions and to form a relationship with your professor, which will benefit you later on when needing recommendation letters, etc. There are a lot of events that you can go to, such as sporting events, Crash the Commons, etc; all events are fun and free with MTSU I.D.
I have attended Middle Tennessee State University twice, decades apart, and received two different degrees. I enjoyed attending each time. The instructors that I had were friendly. The curriculum prepared me for the Professional School that I am now enrolled in. The Financial Aid Department helped me in a very timely manner. I would recommend MTSU to anyone.
MTSU is a great university! It blends the best of both worlds by having the opportunities of a large university, but the close attention of a smaller school in the specific degree programs. The location is wonderful with many things to do that would appeal to a variety of students. I loved it!
I was incredibly grateful for my time at Middle Tennessee State University. It taught me a lot about life outside of school as well as how to work hard towards my degree. It definitely prepared me to now further my education in a new Master's program.
Overall MTSU was OK. Someone else mentioned it being a suitcase school-most people going home on the weekends. This is absolutely the case. So weekends are hit or miss. I even knew several people from neighboring states who commuted daily from those states. One great thing about this school is the academic common market program. If you come from out of state you can get in-state tuition if your selected major isn't available at any of the school from your home state. Saved me a ton of money. I was a student in the school of mass communications. MTSU touts it's Mass Comm program as one of the best in the nation. It especially pushes the importance of it's Recording Industry program. The staff and faculty make it seem as though a Rec Ind degree from MTSU will cement a fast track job in the music industry for the lucky ones who graduate. My friends and I all referred to this as "the great lie." If you're considering working in the recording industry, try to talk with some people working in the industry...A&R types, promoters, agents, etc. They will all tell you that a degree is not going to open any doors for you. My circle of recording industry friends at graduation was around 20-25 people. Of that group, not one person has ever worked in the recording industry except for one friend who opened his own recording studio. However, that's a part time nights and weekends thing as he has a day job that has nothing to do with this industry. I did two internships in Nashville. Most everyone I knew did at least two internships. We were all told the same thing "You want a job? Get experience." These days, I work in the same field I worked in while in the military (I joined after graduating from MTSU.) Luckily my company sees a degree as a checklist item as in it's just something that shows you can see something through to the end. Overall, it's not a bad school. My issue is more with the school of mass communications and the great lie they tell about the importance of their school. If you want to pursue a career in the recording industry; just get out there and do it. If you insist on taking college classes, study business, marketing, etc. This will help you a great deal more than MTSU's recording industry program.
