What's it like at Austin Peay? Like this.
Our campus community was created with success in mind. In and outside of the classroom, we want your experience to be filled with opportunities to pursue your passions while connecting with the diverse population around you. There are a thousand ways our campus community is working to provide you the best possible college experience. Here are a few.
Engage in college life.
There is always something happening on the APSU campus. And, as a student, just about all of those things will be free for you. Why? Because we want you to have a fun, inspiring, well-rounded college experience. Art shows, concerts, readings, bonfires, pep rallies – all of these experiences will connect you with new people, introduce you to new ideas and provide you with new opportunities.
From Greek life to academic clubs to recreational sports, APSU has over 100 organizations
helping you connect with new friends, establish a professional network (and reputation)
and build your résumé.
Whether you're planning a fundraiser, volunteering in the community, conducting research or competing on the intramural fields, you'll gain skills and connections that open the door to greater opportunities.
You don't have to wait until you graduate to put your newfound knowledge to use. Through
our service-learning classes, you'll have the chance to engage in meaningful community
service that can improve your academic success. An example? APSU Spanish students
helping Spanish-speaking adults study English.
Living on campus means you're constantly connected to the friends, faculty and events that will shape your college experience. Also with parking near your hall, quick access to class and numerous dining options, it's easy to see why so many students choose to live where they learn.
Because the constant support of friends and family improves your odds of college success, we require freshman to live on campus or with a parent/guardian within 50 miles of campus. If you're single and coming to APSU with fewer than 12 college credit hours, plan to apply for housing or submit a residency waiver.
From personal training to competitive sports teams to adventures in the great outdoors,
University Recreation offers free and low-cost opportunities that will get your feet
moving and your heart pumping.
We even offer fitness and nutrition workshops to help you maintain your healthy lifestyle.
On game day, Clarksville turns into #Stacheville where students, university employees
and community members alike show off their best red attire and root for our very own
As an APSU student, you'll have free access to every minute of sports action, and you'll be able to shout "Let's Go Peay!" alongside fans filling up our stadiums and arenas.
Make no mistake, you'll learn a great deal about the world during your years at APSU.
But if you crave the excitement of first-hand international experience, our study
abroad and exchange programs offer the chance to globe-trot while you earn college
Ranging in length from three weeks to a full academic year, our list of programs include options for every academic interest, time frame and budget.
Clarksville is one of Tennessee's fastest growing cities and also one of its youngest
with a median age of just 30. From art walks in the picturesque downtown to concerts
along the Cumberland River, there’s never a shortage of great things to see and do.
Clarksville is also only a 45-minute drive soak in the sounds of Nashville, Music
