University of Memphis Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (13)
The University of Memphis is my home. It was my foundation for 4 years by building character, independence, and integrity. My professors and advisers are the reason I have been so successful in my life. I came from a household where none of my 3 siblings graduated high school or went to college. I was able to escape the negative actions they chose to take, by relying on the positive support group I had from my education and network. I worked two jobs and went to school full time while obtaining a a Bachelors in Arts and Sciences within 4 years (no summer courses). I graduated magna cum laude and have been able to represent the University through my undergrad research through the REU-NSF program. Though the courses were challenging, the skills learned have allowed me to pursue my MS in Bioinformatics at Johns Hopkins, working full-time at a career that I love, while raising my beautiful 2-year old. The opportunities are endless. They assisted me with my internship which I now work full-time for and have been at for 4 years. I will forever be thankful for the people who encouraged me to take chances and challenge myself in ways I never knew were possible. Thank you.
It was an amazing program. It was very helpful for preparing me for my career.
Communication is terrible. Courses are not always relevant or necessary. Tuition is expensive. You have to constantly stay on the faculty and staff to get them to do anything they are supposed to like answer questions or return phone calls.
