What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
the university of memphis has a surprisingly diverse faculty and student body for a southern school. there are loads of student help and services available here as well. it's best feature by far is frosh camp, a camp for incoming freshmen to learn about the u of m, make friends, and ask the questions those outside of the university may not have answers to.
Rachel from Memphis, TN
From the college application to gaining enrollment, the recruiters for this university are extremely helpful and always willing to give guidance. The campus itself is phenomenal with many classes are within a 15 minute walking distance. Most importantly, the overall atmosphere of both the college and the people who go there is warm and inviting-I always feel welcome when I am on campus.
