It Gets EXTREMELY Cold And Ice Covers The Ground But Classes Rarely Get Cancelled.

We live in Tennessee where the weather is constantly switching from short and t shirts weather to heavy coats and scarves weather. After a while of going back and forth students tend to get colds or sick. It's not that the University can really help and change the weather, but this is a factor that future students should be aware of.

The library computers are great for (mostly) whatever you need as long as it's just typing a paper or doing online assignments. In contrast, the computers in the science departments are phenomenal. There are large Macs with enough power to do large computations and run long programs. The computer science department's computers are just Dells, but they're newer and a brand new computer science department is being erected at the moment (with what I assume will be new computers).

Honor code is enforced very heavily. Law enforcement on campus is fairly laid back as long as you're not doing anything obviously illegal or being a hassle. If anything does go on law enforcement is there right away and deals with it in a quick manner.

There's only really fast food places on campus. With the exception of maybe Einstein's Bagels and Blondie's, you're only going to be eating fast food or typical cafeteria foods.

I received only the Hope Scholarship (given out by the state to everyone for a 21+ACT). Apparently my family makes just enough money to receive nothing else, even though I'm struggling.

Mainly only bars. Parties are held frequently but only if you know people. The Coup is a great place to go for music and arts if you're into that. Other than that, there's not much if you're under 21.

The main place everyone eats is called the grill. There they offer burger and fry options, mexican food options, and chick-fil-a. There are also a Einsteins Bagels and Starbucks on campus which are very clean and good. Then there is the cafeteria which serves supposedly "homecooked" meals. It isnt very good. Oh, and there is also a subway which is not very clean and is not good. Everytime I have eaten there I have been sick.

Austin Peay has an amazing science department. The professors are extremely helpful, nice, and easy to talk to. If you are dedicated to your field of study, the curriculum isn't hard at all. Plus, you get to choose how many hours you are taking so if you think you're classes are to hard you have the option to let one go. Also, if you do this by a certain date, it will not count against you. The registration process is fairly simple and there are people willing to help you if you do not understand. In fact, they have incoming students meet with the advisors before they come to school and each semester after that. In addition to the great teachers and managable workload, the university offers multiple study abroad opportunities for many areas of study.

My major is chemistry. My classes are lots of fun. I have a lecture where my teachers have included activities and demonstartions about particular things we are studying. My homework is online and isn't hard at all, but there is alot. We don't usually have in class homework. The tests are difficult, but easy to comprehend if you pay attention in class. The teachers are very helpful and encourage you to come see them during office hours. The science building is huge. It is very clean and accomidating to those with dissablities. If you go to a teacher and explain your interest in a certain field or work opportunity they'll help you to the best of their abilities figure out how to get you there.

Parking is atrocious and the number one complaint from students at Austin Peay. Many students carpool simply to avoid the trouble. If you have a parking pass, you can still only park in certain areas and they're always full. If you have to park, get to the school really early or about 30 minutes before your class.

The teachers and staff have really set Austin Peay apart from other colleges to me because of the professors. They are incredibly nice and helpful and go above and beyond to take care of their students. The growth of the school has really allowed the school to make some amazing renovations and keep the school updated and 'green'. Then the variety of degrees and classes help students get a well rounded and interesting education.

Clarksville is a growing city with quite a bit to offer. It has a decent amount of shops and restaurants, varying from large corporations to family owned. The military base nearby provides a very mixed population and a wide variety of housing and apartment options. The convenience of Nashville only being 45 minutes away really attracts people to the area and provides a wider set of options for the weekend. However, outside of a few clubs, there seems to be not much to do outside of campus events in Clarksville itself.
College Junior 2013-02-01T23:25:24Z
The Austin Peay campus is beautiful and welcoming. Several educational buildings are newly build such as the Sundquist center, with its amazing skylight ceiling and spiral staircase. The campus offers the professional but friendly enviroment that people expect. The Foy Center is loved by the students and the library is perfect for studying. The variety of places to eat has improved really well recently and the new dorms look really nice. The only downfall is the campus events don't really appeal to a wide variety of students.

Upper-class residents have the best deal when it comes to parking as we have not only our dorm's lots but a large separate lot across the street. Freshmen have to fight for parking in smaller lots (Blount and Sevier share a lot). Commuters have horrible odds of getting a spot unless you show up about 7am and don't leave your spot until you leave for the day. Getting a spot after 7 becomes a game of chance.
College Freshman 2013-01-30T05:28:56Z
The freshman housing is excellent, other than Castle Heights they are located smack dab in the middle of campus. The upper class class dorms on the other hand are at the very edge of campus. The over all plus side is that it's a small campus, so you can always get to class in 10 minutes from anywhere.

school policies are pretty average across the board
College Freshman 2013-01-23T01:01:15Z
It is going well...the EOC person who is helping me is very good, it is hard finding scholarships, nothing really is clear on what to do or fill out.
College Sophomore 2013-01-21T15:43:48Z
There are many options around campus to eat at. You can get tired of eating at the same places everyday. The cafeteria does a good job of variety everyday. Also if you do get tired some of the dorms have kitchens so you can make your own food.

This can be a blast if you find the right friends, and if not Nashville is just close enough to drive and have a great time without being so close that is effects your studies. The outdoor trails and night life are growing along with the city.

While they are growing and finding new classes to offer they have still not reached a top ten schools offerings. They have just over 11,000 students so they are working on getting more fields of study. I can say that the programs offered are top notch and the skills you learn here are just as good if not better then anywhere else.

To be a biology major at APSU is currently great. While the teachers might be a a little over the top in some not all cases. They truly care about each student and want you to grow and learn. We are limited to class size because of the lab rooms but this also enhances our learning. For the most part we actually get meaningful assignments. The Facilities are new and the are building more and upgrading everything in each classroom, this is going to be on par with other top universities in just a year or two.

It is ok. I don't know much about it. I live off campus.
College Junior 2013-01-01T15:20:13Z
The University has an enforced policy geared towards each student achieving to the best of his or her abilities but has consequences for those that don't, including probation, which can lead up to expulsion. Campus police are strict on parking, which is limited as it is, and are quick to write tickets and hand out fines to those unfortunate enough to be stuck in a no parking zone with five minutes before class starts.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
