    where students apply for housing (room & meals) if they desire to live on campus or where students apply for Residence Life job opportunities (Resident Assistant or Night Desk Attendant).  The Office of Residence Life advertises these application periods through various mediums, such as student email, posting of signs around campus, via the Residence Life webpage http://www.tnstate.edu/housing, MyTSU, Facebook, etc.
  • Assignments-Room and Meal assignments for the academic year are made based on the completed housing applications on a first come-first served basis.  The Residence Life Assignments Office launches the housing applications for the upcoming academic year, usually in the spring semester at the beginning of March.  The Residence Life Assignments Office launches the housing applications for the spring semester only, during the fall semester, usually mid-October. Students are also assigned rooms and meal plans based on the facilities and meal plans in which they qualify.  For instance, students should have earned 60 or more credit hours at the time in which room assignments are made, in order to qualify for the University apartments and freshmen (students who’ve earned less than 30 credit hours) are required to participate in the Freshmen Meal plan which is the maximum meal plan.

Many state and federal laws address bullying-like behaviors in this age group under very serious terms, such as hazing, harassment, and stalking. Additionally, most young adults are uncomfortable with the term bullying—they associate it with school-aged children.”  Students at Tennessee State University who feel they may be victims of bullying or know of someone they feel may be a victim of bullying should report it to University official in which the feel comfortable (Campus Police, Counseling Center, Title IX Coordinator, Residence Director, Academic Dean, etc.).
  • Bystander Intervention-The bystander effect or bystander intervention (also known as bystander apathy) is a psychological phenomenon in which someone is less likely to intervene in an emergency situation when others are present than when they are alone.  The bystander role includes interrupting situations that could lead to assault before it happens or during an incident; speaking out against social norms that support sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking; and having skills to be an effective and supportive ally to survivors
