When we lead, we lead together. All Governors are a family at Austin Peay.
If you ask APSU students and alumni the best part of Austin Peay, many will say it’s the strong sense of community Governors share. From the Latino Student Retreat and Graduate Recognition Ceremony to visiting in the Hispanic Cultural Center, there are a multitude of ways for Latino-identifying students to connect with resources and meet other students. Combined with the quality education available at Austin Peay, your success in higher education is a given.
The primary purpose of the Hispanic Cultural Center includes aiding in the retention of Latino students. The center serves as a place where Latino students can connect meaningfully with and take great pride in their heritage in a nurturing environment. The center is also dedicated to providing knowledge and programming about the historic and contemporary contributions, achievements, and social perspectives of Latino and Hispanic Americans. All are welcome at the HCC!
The Hispanic Cultural Center's Graduate Recognition Ceremony started as a small celebration organized by the Austin Peay Hispanic Alumni Chapter. Today, the program has expanded to recognize students and their loved ones who have contributed to the student's success during their time at APSU.
Get energized for the semester ahead! Joins us for the opportunity to connect with other students, learn about important resources on campus, and engage in meaningful dialogue through different breakout sessions.

I wanted to go to college but I didn’t know where to start or what my capabilities necessarily were, but APSU helped me see all of that little by little. Not only is APSU close to home and affordable but I felt APSU gave off a sense of welcome and acceptance that I didn’t feel I had gotten from any other university.
Austin Peay gave me the feeling of wanting to always be there due to its comfortability, the way it makes students feel welcomed and how it involves every student to have an amazing college experience. It has a place for those who are looking where to fit in. I personally love the fact that I can always find a place where I can be myself. Austin Peay has given me an experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything else.
Looking for a college was very hard for me. I applied to two colleges and I got accepted to both, but Austin Peay had my heart since the beginning. What attracted me to APSU is how close it is to home and the many academic programs offered. Orientation Day was the most exciting day of my life! That day I fell in love with the university and knew I wanted to be a GOV. I’m in my Junior year and I don’t regret attending this amazing university. Choosing APSU was the best decision I’ve ever made.
