Small Enrollment, Personalized Setting:
Although our enrollment exceeds 10,800, more than half of our classes have fewer than 25 students. That means students are more than just a numbe...r here and that strong faculty/staff relationships are typical of an education at TTU. Students are immersed in experiential learning. They learn to write and direct plays, build robots, help cardiac patients with nutrition, improve nanotechnology, and more.
A Beautiful Place to Call Home:
Located in Cookeville, Tennessee, a town of about 25,000 residents, TTU offers the best of both rural and urban living. We're situated near scenic state parks like Burgess Falls and Fall Creek Falls, yet around an hour from three of the state's biggest metro areas - Nashville, Knoxville, and Chattanooga.
Consistent Top Rankings:
Tennessee Tech University is one of the nation's 50 "Best Value" public colleges and universities according to The Princeton Review. TTU was one of only three public universities in Tennessee and the only TBR institution on the 2010 list. TTU has been named one of America's 100 Best College Buys, earning designation several years in a row as one of the nation's best college educations for the cost. USNews & World Report has chosen TTU as one of the Top Public Schools in the South on multiple occasions, and the University has been chosen as a "Best Southeastern College" by The Princeton Review for several years.
