There are a few good professors there.Other
There are a few good professors there. Basically they are trying to be a rich university but they are a diploma mill. I was a transfer student from Tennessee State University. I had studied abroad 2 years and was an honors student. Within 6 months of starting at MTSU I was falsely accused of terrorism and thrown out. Then I spent three years trying to fix it with the US Dept. of Ed. MTSU was found in violation of my civil rights. I don't have money to sue them and they have to do nothing to repair the damage. Worst than a waste of time. This was a trauma. I'll be spending years trying to undo the damage.

MTSU is more of a blue collar schoolQuite BrightEducation
MTSU is more of a blue collar school with a trailer park mentality. Let's face it....we are not talking about getting an Ivy League education here. The university accepts students who barely graduate from high school with very low ACT and/or SAT scores. I only chose this school because it was close to home. I realized I had made a significant mistake after my first semester because of the poor quality of the professors and the apathetic attitudes of many students. Fortunately, I have a resonable degree of intelligence and a strong work ethic. I was accepted into a good graduate program because I completed extra research projects and I obtained a very high score on the GRE. Avoid MTSU if you desire a quality education that will prepare you for the future.

MTSU is more of a private, money makingQuite BrightEconomics
MTSU is more of a private, money making business than a state college. Campus Police give out citations, on a constant basis. But speed thru the campus and surrounding area. Some teachers are nice, but the majority spend their time making sure students know, that the professors are smarter than them. Be very aware of school fee guidelines, try not to have to drop classes or Chang after the first week, or even day of class starts, it could be day one and drop a class, 25% few based on each class tuition and fees charged,.... Can get very costly... Example, something as simple as two changes can cost in excess of $500... Just for the administrative changes... Even more after the first week.... Good quality is fair to not good, compared to price... Books are expensive, even used... So you may pay $100 for a used book, and get $15 when you sell it back, the book is then resold to the next person, at a used price, $100. Part of tuition is a standard activities and technology fee, whether used or not, so don't forget to look into everything available to you. You paid for it. Parking is getting better, with construction... Overall, if you want a true college experience and surroundings, but receive a degree from a reputable college, a person would want to look at MTSU as a last resort. Not worth the tuition and fees charged...
