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.
