| Also, another thing to add that I forgot in my other review. I have Asperger syndrome, which is a mild form of autism, and it sometimes affects my ability to study and prioritize (I have deficits in what is called executive functioning, which is the part of your brain that is responsible for planning, organization, self-reflection, motivation, etc). That being said, I don't trust the Disability Services department to even understand what it is, much less provide adequate treatment or accommodations. If you don't literally sound retarded they will refuse to believe that you need help or are disabled at all.If you have a disability that will seriously interfere with your ability to study on your own, to the point where you need help from the university of you will fail, DO NOT COME HERE. In my case I am a milder case I'm able to do well academically with a little help from my parents and planning notebooks. Socially, I still struggle a lot, but it's not anything new to me. I've met a couple good, understanding friends here. |

| Yes, Memphis has a high population of African American students, but the numbers state that we whites still outnumber them a little; the school is about half and half. If you don't want to be around diversity, and will feel uncomfortable being around minorities than go attend UT Martin with the rednecks. Anyway,|
There are nice and mean students of all races. Period.
The school is okay. Tuition isn't that high compared to some places, and the food is pretty decent. The professors in my department can be pretty arrogant, though.
This school is what you make of it. If you focus so much on not having a school that's predominantly white, then no you won't like it.The school isn't THAT dangerous; typical campus crime goes on, and its mostly committed by other students and not random people off the street. Just be smart and you'll be okay.
