Although, admittedly, Tennessee State University was not particularly attractive to me at the onset of my matriculation, I have grown to love my HBCU...endearingly. Despite the relatively large amount of extremely unfocused students, I sincerely believe TSU has the potential to provide as good an education as almost any 4-year public university. As with any college, however, it depends greatly on one's effort. What initially captivated me was the university's great sense of pride. In addition, it is quite rare to see professors take such great stock in the success of their students...I see it everyday at TSU. Overall, I am pleased with my decision to attend Tennessee State University.

This has been a great experience for me. This is my first time away from home and attending orientation made me and my mother feel more comfortable because of the resources that were provided for any of your needs while you are on this campus. The food was great. And I am looking forward to being a student at Tennessee State University. I just wish that there was more finanica aid out there to help my mom because she is a single parent. But overall I am happy that I chose to come to this college.
