Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2010
"Human development and learning department (counseling major) attempts to be diversified but in fact, is very close minded in it opinions. If you're looking for mutual respect for various perspectives, this is not your school."

V. K. Sumner - 9/29/2015
Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"As an online-only student, I did not visit the campus often, but I feel like I received an excellent education. The online classes were just as challenging and informative as on-campus classes (sometimes much more challenging...in a good way) and, as a shy person, I felt able to communicate and interact in ways that wouldn't have been possible in a face-to-face setting."

Graduation Year: 2009
"I thought the History faculty at ETSU gave me all the tools I needed to succeed while there. They took the time to assist me in all my endeavors like internships, research, and many other things."

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2013
"Work hard, play hard! Most importantly, DON'T forget about going to class! It's okay to skip here and there, but take it from someone who's $75K in debt only for a bachelor's at a state school: GO TO CLASS. Also, you'll go into debt (unless you're fortunate enough not to!), but try to pick a profession that qualifies for PSLF, or Public Service Loan Forgiveness. It's a federal loan forgiveness program that is real...just go to the Dept. of Education's website and search PSLF. Best of luck! :)"

Atlas - 6/30/2015
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2008
"Once I found my way into the business department the professors I had were great. I had a CFA, retired investment banker, corporate lawyer, former Federal Reserve banker, statistician, and several business owners as my teachers. However, the advisement was lacking and I was not encouraged to take an internship, which is my biggest regret."

M.L.D. - 12/18/2014
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016
"Because I am a single mother, I needed online classes but could not afford most online colleges. Because I live so close to ETSU I was awarded in-state tuition so that saved me a lot on tuition. I chose online classes even though it costs an average of $225 more per semester because I would pay more than that in gas driving to and from campus twice a week."

Carla Flanary - 8/10/2014
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2006
"I received my BS in Engineering Technology in 2002 from East Tenn. State University before enrolling in the MBA graduate program. This decision required 36 credit hours of Essential courses in Business to be completed before I could begin the Graduate program. The foundation needed to be successful was laid by this requirement. The MBA program broadened my understanding and gave me the skills necessary to contribute more informatively while making decisions based on departmental and organizational needs for reaching short and long term goals."

Tammy K - 8/6/2014
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"ETSU is a wonderful school that has truly prepared me to further my education. I have chosen to continue at ETSU and get a Masters. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the views are amazing. East TN is a gorgeous area to live in. The campus is set up well, better now that there is a parking garage. The library is great, full of study places. The Culp center is also a fun place to be, also with great study places. The Criminal Justice department has an awesome secretary that is so passionate about the students. The professors are good, easy to get along with, and are interesting."

"ETSU's College of Business is excellent. I received my BBA in Marketing at ETSU and enjoyed every minute of it. The courses were great and the professors were even better. I highly recommend East Tennessee State University."
