STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

WHY AUSTIN PEAY STATE UNIVERSITY IAN A GREAT UNIVERSITY

I chose APSU because there was no application fee, no essay, and it wasn’t the cheapest four-year university. I also had heard they had a high acceptance rate. I only applied to APSU because I was accepted quickly. I had a 4.0 my senior year of high school and a 26 on the ACT so I think that’s lead to my acceptance. I chose the political science program because I believed it would prepare me for law school.


Course Curriculum - 

I enjoy the courses offered in my program. I wish there were less gen Ed’s as I have not found them as helpful as other courses.
