Once you’ve watched the sun set over the mighty Mississippi from the fourth floor
Gordon Ball Scenic Reading Room, it’s time to get out and discover what brings people
to Memphis from all over the world. If you have to say it in one word, it’s Elvis. But Memphis has a pretty expansive vocabulary and lots to offer our resident students.
First, Memphis is affordable
If you are on a tight budget, it’s not going to hamper your social life. Five dollars
will get you a seat in AutoZone Park to watch the Memphis Redbirds and you can root for the Memphis Tigers basketball teamat the FedEx Forum for free with a student ID (one guest ticket for $10).
It’s not just sports that fit a student budget. Most of the city’s arts organizations and museums offer inexpensive or free admission to students. And we are a city of exceptional
ethnic restaurants and BBQ joints that tailor their prices to a student’s budget.
Memphis housing costs are considered affordable. Within a four-mile radius of Memphis
Law, the housing prices and quality vary widely. It’s a good idea to spend some time
looking and talking with current students before making a decision. The law school has collected some housing suggestions for you.
And Memphis offers variety
Memphis is a city of incredible diversity, both in population and interests. We have
a thriving music industry, collegiate and professional sports, theater and dance, an active artcommunity, and a nationally acclaimed zoo.
