The head of academic advising, Jill Oberfeitinger, will actively accuse and harass students of cheating on arts and lectures event credits without presenting her evidence or the witnesses who presented the claim to her. Rather than handling these matters behind closed doors, she will go out of her way to use her power as one of the handlers for the ID readers at arts and lectures events to harass you, expecting you to immediately see an email right after she sent it demanding a meeting in her office and degrading you as an individual for not immediately reporting to her like a good little automaton; additionally, she and those organizing the arts and lectures events do not themselves understand that their language implies a certain vagueness for event end times (phrases such as "12-ish" and "around noon"), and she does not have any interest in accepting requests to leave early during Q&A end portions of events when a student may have a class immediately afterwards.Do not attend this university unless you're ready to play a game of avoiding an academic advising head who has gone mad with power. She has no interest in you as a student besides someone that she can speak down to and demean due to having power over you; avoid like the plague if you don't want your time better spent writing papers for wonderful professors wasted by her bitterness.

Tusculum College was a bad decision, that I cannot redo! I will graduate with a GPA above 3.25, which should be much higher. 3 of the 'program' professors have a God Complex, and should be fired. However they keep their noses buried to far in Brian Pope's rear end for that to happen. Dr. Moody will know what is going on in the PSYC department, when I have my degree in hand! I have no clue if she cares, but she will know!

The psychology program is amazing.Quite BrightPsychology
The psychology program is amazing. I couldnt imagine being in a different program at tc. The faculty treats me like an individual and are very caring. Dr. Pope, Dr. Harlow, and Dr. Garris are three of the best professors i have ever met.

However, maintenance in the residence halls are terrible. The cafeteria is terrible. The pizza tastes like plastic. Sometimes the only thing to eat is a sandwhich. And the cafe workers are very rude to the students. For what I pay to attend this school, I expected a nicer room and edible food.

I would advise people to attend for education purposes but be aware that it is not going to be a great college experience and you can do better at a less expensive school.

They are also trying to get rid of the block system which I find not helpful becAuse the block system is what kept me here for so long. It would also be advisable to keep up with your credits yourself. They will try to prevent you from graduating as much as they can. "Youre lacking 1 credit" so many students hear this when it comes a week before graduation. You would think they would let you know but no..they want to keep everyone there.
