East Tennessee State University is "a decent mid-sized state university" that "attempts to give a solid education to students who might otherwise not be able to attend college." It has the "best nursing program around" and "is all about science and medicine," although it also focuses on unique subjects like "Appalachian studies and bluegrass." "Consisting mainly of students from the three closest counties," ESTU feels like "home away from home" for many students in the area. "The community here is amazing!" one happy student says.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
