Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Going to Austin Peay's Nursing program was a big step! The program is difficult to get in, but so worth it. The education and requirements of the students are rigorous, but they ultimately prepare you for a challenging job field. Nursing is not an easy profession, and the instructors prepare students with just enough "tough love." I (and all of my classmates) had no trouble finding a job, the market for nurses is wide open and employers are eager to hire students from the APSU program! I do not regret choosing this school or this program. Completely worth it.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

First, I was attempting to achieve my degree online due to being in the military and moving around a lot. The computer science program is well designed for the road map of critical courses to prepare a student for a post collegiate career. After 4.5 years and five classes from graduation I withdrew to enroll in a different university knowing that a minimum of 10 more classes would be required. What drove me to that decision? Austin Peay has some of the worst compute science professors that do not acknowledge the existence of on-line students. The senior level courses were nothing more than repositories for the syllabus, assignments and course materials. Absolutely no instruction or engagement with the professor. My academic advisor was my professor and wouldn't respond to emails. Why should I pay thousands of dollars for an education that Google and various IT websites are the teachers. There are a few professors that are 'adjunct' faculty whom I hold the deepest amount of respect for. They always went the extra mile to ensure I understood the material, concepts and how the answer was achieved. Kudos to those who are the truest of educators. I have a strong sense of loyalty most notably due to my military career but I could no longer accept the status quo for the online program at Austin Peay. A difficult decision to say the least. Do yourself a favor and find another school for Computer Science. There are a bevy of choices where the university has a robust system in place that supports the 'brick and mortar' students as well as on line students.
