Do freshman get to choose their dorms?
Middle Tennessee State University
So, in theory, yes. Freshman can use our self-assigning service that all students use to find a dorm. Something beneficial about being a freshman living on campus is that freshman can live anywhere on campus, but ONLY freshman can live in the dorms Corlew and Cummings, which are designated as our freshman living dorms. (Housing is based on grade-year so the order for availability to sign-up for housing is seniors, athletes, juniors, sophomores, then freshman.)

MTSU has many great opportunities for all different kinds of students. The professors want to lead you to success! The campus is beautiful and there are always events to attend.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dorm rooms are lacking, as well as the dining hall.

I really enjoyed my time at MTSU, the Recording Industry program is really amazing. You learn under the guidance of successful music industry professionals who genuinely want to see you succeed. Most of the buildings and facilities are nice and quite new, especially the library.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like the difficulty of parking, I believe it to be especially bad, but there are shuttles on campus. The dorms weren't great, but livable. When I started there I had been a vegan for two years and became so malnourished from the lack of options at the dining hall (salad, overcooked rice, and greens every day) that I had to go back to being vegetarian so I could eat the pizza.

The last five years of life have been an amazing journey.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

College is not cheap and requires more studying than high school.

Kelsey Ladd



I have found everything I needed to succeed in my college life academically and socially here at mtsu.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Housing is slightly flawed, with parking, water quality, and cleanliness.

I chose Middle Tennessee State University because when I toured the campus I fell in love. The buildings are older, but they are beautiful. Everyone I have met on campus whether it be peers or professors has been extremely helpful and sweet to me. I went to high school in middle Tennessee, but the amount of new faces you see is crazy! I have had a great experience transferring from the University of Tennessee Knoxville back home to MTSU.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I have not lived on campus, the buildings look old but up to date. I have heard that maintenance is a bit of a hassle when you ask them to come to fix something or help in the dorms.

When looking at reviews of Anthropology programs from prestigious institutions, I am always blindsided by the claims of lack of diversity or acknowledgment of the field's flaws. At MTSU there's a collection of absolutely astounding Anthropology professors who have all done amazing work. They are welcoming and are conscious of things like class, race, and gender and the effects anthropology has had on the view of those things. I have never had a professor shy away from the ugly parts of research, anthropology, and culture in general. I don't know about other majors, but I am beyond happy with the education and opportunities MTSU's Anthropology department has offered.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Lots of conservatives because it's middle Tennessee.
