What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Always know what you want to do before making a commmitment to any school, whether it is to go to school to learn, to interact with other peers or to just get away from home, but know for sure what you want beforehand.
Vicki from Nashville, TN
To make the best of your experience, apply early, keep a copy of all paper work, network with administration and join clubs and organizations.
Mikayla Austin from Cincinnati, OH
Get your financial aid done ahead of time, those lines are ridiculous! Join lots of clubs, and become familiar with the campus and peers. Student government knows everything, so go to the meetings they're open.
Kiara from Ellenwood, GA
College is what you make it. College can be fun if you go out and make it that way. It can be boring if you don't do anything or communicate with others.
Briana
You will be pride to be at Tennessee State a H B C.
Brooklyn from Nashville, TN
My tip for future students is to do everything in a timely fashion. Don't wait til the last minute like I did.

The tips I would give to future students is to stay focused on your studies & you'll be fine. TSU offers tutoring sessions & some teachers even meet up with you in the mornings before class or even after class to help. Take advantage of every opportunity!
Ma'Khya from Southfield, MI
For future students, I have three bits of advice for you. First and foremost is to relax; being away from home for months at a time is definitely an eye opener but you'll be fine. Second, never stress; be it about homework, friends, parties or any activities because it will all happen naturally. Lastly, time management is key. Not having time to do something is no excuse; using a few seconds, minutes or an hour or two out of your day won't stop the world.
Paris from Las Vegas, NV
Be sure to take the ACT or SAT seriously because it the better your score, the better you'll be. Make sure you save money because college is expensive all the way around. No matter where you go! You still need some extra money in your pocket for hard times!
