Austin Peay State University (APSU) is located in my home town of Clarksville, TN. It is a fairly small university which, for me, is the basis of its appeal. Although there are some classes with 100+ students, most of the classes are small which makes it possible to develop relationships with your professors.
I am a rising senior at APSU. I am majoring in physics, and completing minors in both mathematics and astronomy. The entire university is an amazing place to further your education, but for me, the physics department is the best place to be! (No, I'm not bias! Ok, maybe just a little!)
