In three sentences
Martin is a very small school, only about 1,200 students, but that is the best part about it. It feels like home, the tight-nit community make the transition from high school to college a lot less stressful. All in all, Martin is a great school and a fun place to receive a good education.
Tips for prospective students
The classes are small so it is easy to build good relationships with your professors. Don't be afraid to ask for help, they are more than willing to help you!
Academic Rigor
The professors here will challenge you, but they are also here to help. Don't be afraid to ask for help, and Martin also has a free Student Resource Center where you can receive tutoring.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is something every college student should experience. It is a great way to make friends and there is always something going on. Just remember to always wear your shower shoes!
Food and Dining
The school cafeteria is newly renovated and looks amazing! The people who work there are so sweet and always hoping for suggestions about what to and what not to cook. Jazzman's is the schools own little coffee shop and a great hangout spot (very similar to Starbucks!)
What to do for fun
There are so many different clubs and activities to do on campus it is a wonder how anyone ever gets bored, but on the off chance that you do, Pulaski is a small town and has the cutest little shops. It is always fun to just go on a walk through town, or even get a group of friends together and drive to Nashville for the night (only 1 and a half hours away!)
Bang for the buck
Martin is a great school to get your education, and the financial aid department is VERY helpful about making your college experience affordable so that you don't have to worry so much about how to pay for college as just getting through college.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs and other activities at Martin! It is safe to say there is something for everyone, from the school Newspaper, to Martin Serves! the clubs are amazing!
Campus Safety
Martin is in a very small town and the neighborhood is extremely friendly, you do not need to worry about safety at this school! and if worse comes to worse, that the criminal justice majors are always around to help out!
