A Second Home
Experiences extend past the classroom with Free Peer Tutoring, Ranked-Up Esports and our ACM Chapter. Every semester brings many events and speakers that show how technology is used in the real world. Plus, the Maynard Math & Science Building and the Technology Building provide ample social space, study nooks, and all the power outlets students could ever need to ensure that they can keep connected with Austin Peay.

Great programmers have a passion for their work, and one of the best times to learn that passion is during grade school. We spread the technology we have through our APSU Junior Coders classes and our APSU Coding Camps, getting kids invested in the computing world.

I’ve always had a love of computers, and after I began to research the degree offerings at Austin Peay, it just made me sure that this was the place I needed to be. I’ve always wanted to know how computers work and be one of the guys behind making them work, and the degree I’ll receive at Austin Peay will definitely help me in the future.
Austin Peay gave me a new beginning, an opportunity. I had no direction, no clue what I wanted to do. Now I’m so excited and ready to rule the world with code. I’m stoked.
One of the most important opportunities Austin Peay has provided me was the introduction to Computer Science. Before coming here I had no idea what I wanted to study, but I've found this field to be one I would enjoy and be happy with a career in.
I did my research and I chose Austin Peay because it combined the opportunities of a large university with the one-on-one education of a private school and now I feel like I have two homes: one in Kentucky and my other home here in Clarksville, Tennessee.
