Most computer labs aren't busy since every building has wifi. And you can always go to a computer lab to print out needed material.

Health & Safety:
Saftey is a big issue with Austin Peay not because things are dangerous but because the University cares. There is a free message alert system the campus has that is free for all students. It sends out saftey alerts for crime and weather. Campus police are active as well at all events and patrol regularly.

The Criminal Justice Program is very flexible in at Austin Peay. Classes can be taken online or in the classroom. There are a wide selection of minors for this course too. I enjoyed it a lot because what I was learning fit right into my job in the military as Military Police. Austin Peay has one main campus and two satalite campuses. The work load for these couses is acceptable but no two clases are alike. The classes vary more due to professors that teach the courses. Oppurtunitys for the field of criminal justice are wide and it is a great degree to have to use as a foundation.

Austin Peay does have chances for students to take inership positions that vary from library aids to jobs workin in the campus book store. I did not have an intrest in finding an internship. As a father and a member of the Army Reserves I had my time filled.

There is a good amount of parking but most of it requires the parking permint. If I recall correctly it is like 15 dollars a semester. Ticketing is strictly enforced too. There is parking on the streets that does not requir a permit but that fills up fast. If you want a spot you on the street you will have to circle the streets if it is close to mid day.

I have enjoyed my time in college. Although I did not do any partying or attend very many events on campus there is not a lot I would change. If there was anything I could do over again it would be to try and go to more on camus events. My career goals is to further my military career with this degree by becoming a commissioned officer. I am a little worried about my transition from the Army Reserves back to active duty but I am not overly worried. I also intend on applying for a position within the local law enforcement as a secondary option.

Enrollment was a little more of a problem than I thought it would be. I had to fill out the admissions request and show shot records and take a placement exam. The whole process took some time but there were good people to help me along the way. Highschool GPA and SAT or ACT score were sort of a factor but did not stop me from being accepted. I did well in Highschool but but not on my ACT. I thought the application process for APSU was easy and choose to attend the FT. Campbell Campus.

As an non traditional student I can't comment really on this block because I live off campus. I have not gone on any kind of a tour of the campus to see dorms either.

Athletic events are attended but not really a big part of this school. AP supports those involved in sports though. Supplies and up-to-date equiptment.

The campus is secure and officiers are always walking around but students have freedom to have fun. There is absolutely no drinking or smoking on campus. This policy is strictly inforced. Academically, AP is the best. It has great professors that genuinely care about their students. Free tutoring classes are offered and one on one tutoring is available as well.
College Senior 2013-06-15T13:05:37Z
They have stuff going on. I'm not impressed but others like it.

The dorms at APSU are taken care of very well. The older dorms don't have elevators, but the walk up the stairs isn't bad at all. The newer dorms are fantastic. Old dorms, like Sevier and Blount, have the traditional style of living with a suite mate. The new dorms, like Castle Heights, North, and South buildings, only share a bathroom with your roommate. Most of the problems that come in the dorms are because of the students inability to clean up after themselves. The kitchen and study rooms can sometimes get pretty disgusting, but the cleaning crew comes in every week and fixes things up pretty quickly. The cost of the dorm is worth it for everywhere except Hand Village. Hand does not offer wifi and is very far away from the rest of campus. Castle Heights is also very far from the rest of campus and can sometimes be a taunting walk. Sevier, Blount, and Harvill are right in the middle of campus, but are older buildings. The North, South, and West buildings are opening in the fall and promise to make the best of both worlds, proximity to campus with the amenities of being a brand new dorm. Dealing with the housing department can sometimes be pretty awful. Dr. Obi is probably one of the worst faculty members I have ever met. She has no concern for the well-being of the students and appears to only care about her pay check. She doesn't have time for anything and doesn't put any effort into her work. She loves to play favorites with students. You can also barely understand a word she says. Avoid dealing with her as much as possible and you're good to go.

Parking at APSU is honestly pretty terrible right now. Living on campus is a lot easier, as there are colored areas designated for each dorm. Commuting is awful at the moment. If you want to get to class on time while commuting, you are going to have to learn to walk. The large parking lots that offer space are all on the outskirts of campus. Most people complain a lot more than necessary, as it is not that hard to walk a few minutes, but it can be a little inconvenient if you schedule your classes too close together. The school has plans to expand some of the parking lots and add new parking, so the problem should not be as bad in the upcoming year.

The athletics at APSU are superb. The varsity sports are very well supported and there are hundreds of intramural sports in which to participate. The basketball teams are absolutely fantastic, male and female. Everyone attends games and cheers on the team for their effort. Despite the football team being mediocre at best, the school is still just as supportive of them as they are the basketball teams. Tennis and soccer games receive just as much support as other sports, which is rare in most schools. Joining an intramural sport is very recommended and respected. There are advertisements and programs everywhere for any intramural sport you could possibly be interested in. From intramural tennis to hackysack, there is something for everyone. Participating in the intramural versions of the varsity sports also gives you a lot of training, so that you might try out for the competitive version in the next season. The Foy Fitness center sponsors everything. They do all the can do get students involved and active. Regularly, the Foy offers beginner programs and incentives to participate. Overall, APSU athletics are absolutely wonderful!

Our Nursing Program is talked about quite favorably in the community as one of the best. It is quite competitive as well. This fall we will have roughly 300 applicants to the program with only 50 slots to fill. A students GPA is the first thing that the committee will look at when choosing who is to be admitted. The curriculum thus far has been very challenging too. When classes first began, Anatomy & Physiology was my most challenging subject, as classes progressed, Microbiology became the most challenging. I look forward to meeting the challenges of future classes.

The community that surrounds the main campus has a healthy relationship with the local community.

Austin Peay is beautiful. They are always making improvements to the whole campus.

I don't eat a whole lot on campus but if I do I mostly eat in the morning or lunch. I like my choices I have on campus but sometimes I feel like its the same kind of stuff. Also if you don't have a meal plan the prices are a little high
College Junior 2013-05-22T21:43:15Z
Because I am almost finish with my major I have had most professors already. I really enjoy my classes. There are also excellent advisors

I believe students should be staying on Campus for more safety and spend less money on rent.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
