About Tennessee State University

Tennessee State University is a public university in the city of Nashville, Tennessee. It was founded as the largest, and only state funded university for African-Americans in Tennessee. Located 6 kilometres from Downtown Nashville, it is close to city attractions, picturesque parks and vibrant nightlife.

Tennessee State University has a fascinating history to explore. Visitors can browse the campus, take in a theatrical play, listen to a topical lecture, or even join in with the annual African Street Festival. The main campus has more than 65 buildings, set in over 200 hectares of land. It is located on the edge of Nashville city. The second campus, Avon Williams campus, is conveniently located in the downtown business and government district. The university comprises several programmes and colleges which include the Colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts, Education, Health Sciences, Agriculture and Public Service. In addition to its historical achievements, the university is also home to notable alumni. These include Oprah Winfrey, Jesse Russell, members of the U.S. Congress, singers and sports stars. Tennessee State University has over 100 student clubs and organisations to help newcomers integrate into student life.
