The recommendation of a friend brought senior psychology major Derrick Tims to Austin Peay State University, but it has been the experiences and personal connections the former soldier has made during his time here that make Tims proud to be a Gov. 

“I knew I needed to advance myself after leaving the military, and my best friend received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Austin Peay and spoke very highly of the institution and its psychology department,” Tims said. “Since I’ve been here, I’ve found I like the friendly and accepting environment the most; the faculty and staff that I have worked with have been very approachable and caring.”
