Working load is too heavy, so it leaves little time to do research
Professor of Mathematics (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 9, 2017
Tennessee State University asks every faulty member to work 15 credit hours within which 3 hours are deductible, so everyone must teach 12 hours per week. Very little time is left for research. The Mathematical Sciences has very limited budget for teaching,and almost no budget for research. Besides, the Department is managed terribly poor.
The weather in Nashville, Tn, is so-so, not comparable with Florida, though.
Web Editor/Web Administrator (Former Employee) – Nashville-Davidson, TN – June 8, 2017
TSU has a small enough campus to feel "close knit." And large enough to feel progressive and growing. It continually strives to be innovative in its research and its academic programs.
I've learned so much at the university, from both a personal & professional perspective. The additional gains in web editing/administrator knowledge has given me a valuable skill set for today's high-technology centered marketplace.
TSU offers anyone who's willing to come in with an open mind and a giving spirit, to receive back ten-fold a most rewarding employment experience!
Great people, Great academic programs.
Great people. Some areas need better performance/funding administration.
Internship (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 8, 2017
Typical days at the internship while using time management on the hardest and easy days gave me sense of life balance.The job work was not hard nor complicated yet finding a career with benefits and advancement that fit my abilities.
Accessibility of different fields of government or government contractors
Normal hours as intern 8-4 part time not employed full time or shift changes for 24/7 of the day
A typical day is mostly responding to emails. Unfortunately the upper management of this company is not concerned about the lower level employees or their concerns. I would recommend it for entry level administrative assistants who want a college degree while you work.
Working for TSU I learned a lot about the ins and outs of administration. I worked in a building where there were always students coming In and out for questions or needing assistance with something, and I was always there to assist.
The position that I was given working at Tennessee State University was a front desk receptionist in the College of Business. Great experience. All of the Professors and Deans of the College of Business are excellent people.
Teaching courses to undergraduate students Teaching proper laboratory techniques Most enjoyable is helping Undergraduates excel in their academic career and giving advice and tips that most undergraduates do not receive.

TV Host and Producer (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – February 14, 2017
Our instructor was very thorough in pre production, post production, and our coordinating shows. Each person was properly trained on cameras, sound board, producing and script writing. Each person also trained as Tech Director, Television Host, Screenwriting and Floor directing
Loved it, Great People. Great place to work, and give great raises. My boss is very understanding, he cooks for the whole office sometimes, or take us all out lunch. Love to interact with the students, and answer phone calls to help others.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – February 5, 2017
Good environment to learn and grow, supportive faculty who take interest in students growth beyond the academic scene. Paper work and administration needs a little work, grossly under staffed and inefficient in that department.
