The best thing about MTSU is probably the beauty and accessibility of our campus. We have probably one of the fasting growing student populations in the South and with that comes new facilities and expanding resources for students. The Master Plan for our campus is amazing and I'm excited to see the ways that the campus will change within the next few years. Murfreesboro is a very flat town, which means that MTSU is a very flat campus. There are no huge hills that students have to trek up as with campuses like WKU or UTK. This provides a very handicap accessible campus and an easy walk between classes. One thing I would change about MTSU would be, going back to the stereotypes, changing the whole "suitcase" college aspect. As mentioned before, this adversely affects the attendance at our football games and other sports, for which we have great facililties. Our athletics program is growing at exponential rates and it would be great if there were more student support for it. Maybe if there were more student oriented events/entertainment/venues in the surrounding communinity students ould be more inclined to stay. Our school is growing by leaps and bounds and is now the largest undergraduate intstitution in Tennessee. This may be a turn-off to many prospective students, but any current student will tell you that MTSU still has a small-campus atmosphere with small classes, a low teacher-student ratio, and enough faculty and staff to serve students with any and all of their needs
From my experience, MTSU professors seem to be very personable. They are usually available and anxious to meet with students outside of class and once they get into their upper division studies, many students develop open personal relationships with many professors. As for academic requirements, they vary. I have been challenged throughout my education at MTSU, but there are classes that carry the reputation of being an "easy A". The majority of my classes have been challenging, especially in my upper-division studies, but I have also had classes that most students viewed as "a joke".
MTSU has a very diverse array of student organizations with I believe over 200 organizations. If you are into it there is an organization for it. Outside of organizations, students usually mostly interact with other students within their colleges.
The Best Things
The best thing about MTSU is the growth of campus along with student accessibliity and expanding student resources.
The Worst Things
It's definitely a "suitcase" college. There isn't much school spirit.
