review is for all of the parents out there in
cyberspace who might be doing google searches on different Universities
for their children.
I make this review out of
peace and common decency.
For the love of all
that is sacred and holy on the planet do not
send a child to this University.
This is one o the lowest ranked Universities going. It
is a fourth tier school.
This University costs more
to attend than any other University within the Tennessee Board
The lady who is the president of
his University is much more so for sports than she
is academics. She basically speaks of that in the local
paper and everything. The local paper is called the Commercial
Appeal and it has an online version.
taken classes at this University which were nothing more than
slide shows shown on a power point and nothing more.
I have taken classes at this University which have
been taught by folks who can barely speak English. I
have googled these folks and found that they did all
of their coursework in their native tongue and not English.
Had I more life experience or travel under my belt
I maybe could understand them, I guess. I feel bad
stating this part, but it is really hard to understand
a total ESL worthy University instructor and all. Sorry.
This University is just far too close for comfort to
one of the more dangerous neighborhoods of the city of
Memphis. And, please keep in mind that the city of
Memphis is one of the more dangerous cities in the
nation for most everything.
For some reason the athletes
of this school are catered to at all costs. One
of the more recent ones (and this was in the
local paper) did not academically qualify to even enroll here
but someone pulled something with the NAACP and he was
let in for free to play sports! Holy cow.
If you have a learning disability or ADD or even
ADHD or Aspergers, then good luck. The lady who runs
the Student Disability Services has a BA in Drama and
a MS in Children's Counseling but if you look her
up you will see that the University she claims to
have graduated from does not offer a MS in Children's
Counseling. So good luck there. I have dyslexia and am
not really proud of it. But one meeting with Susan
C Tepaske made me just up and decide to have
nothing to do with her and her offices at all
and so I now do a mix of on line
and campus based courses. Weirdest experience I have ever had
was dealing with this lady and she was also under
the influence when I spoke with her which made it
all the more scary. I also just loved being told
that in her opinion, I hadn't dyslexia at all and
that she was not sure if that even existed. That
was funny to me what with most everyone knowing what
dyslexia is for goodness sakes. So, if you are a
parent with a LD child or what have you, then
leave this school be.
Please parents of the mid
south, send your children to any other one of the
Tennessee Board of Regents Schools. You will be better for
it and your children will be too. Just because you
live here does not mean that you have to send
your child here. My parents said I can transfer and
I am working even extra hard to make that happen
because this school is just crap. Take it from me.
I have a 3.5 gpa from nothing to speak of
at all, I just have really learned next to nothing
on the state's dime because I did well on the
ACT and all of that crap. Whay should I bother
going here if I have and can honestly say that
I have learned next to nothing? MTSU here I come
