What Students Are Saying

3.52 Average Rating
Fisk is a small liberal arts school. If you are interested in music and performance arts this is the place to be. Also pre med students are located right across the street from Meharry Medical College, and only miles away from Vanderbilt University. The science department is awesome!
Darica from Blytheville, AR
1- Tour the campus
2- Research the school
3- Find out if you have a local Fisk Club in your area

Make sure that you have great grades because Fisk invests in it's students
Fisk is all about giving back to the community, keep that in mind!
Never take 18 credit hours per semester (if you plan to be involved in all the random activities at Fisk)
Shantel from Covington, GA
Come to Fisk it is truly the best college to attend in America no matter what you've heard. We all really care about one another at Fisk.
Jazmine from Chicago, IL
Come here with the mindset of working as hard as you can. Expect to have friends and professors who want you to make it
Victor from Nigeria
Upon coming to Fisk do not expect to find several thousands of students.
Focus on your academics, as a first-year student aim for a 4.0 so you have cushion to work with in the latter years.
James from Maple Heights, OH
Complete your scholarship applications, fill out the FAFSA early to ensure that you will get the most money you can, stay focus during your senior year and keep your GPA up so that you can get a great scholarship!
