College Life Rating

If there is one thing that Tennessee State University excels at, it's college life. Having been placed in a large and diverse city, TSU is somewhat of a hub of entertainment; there is always something to do at TSU. However, the atmosphere can take some getting used to depending on where the student is from. There is a club/organization for almost everything at TSU, despite what many believe. The student just has to make the effort to find the club/organization. As far as safety is concerned, I take the stance that as long as the students isn't "up to no good", there's a relatively low chance of him/her being endangered. The sports are always extremely entertaining and the game-day atmosphere for most sports is unparalleled.
