College Sophomore

Greek Life: I know no Greek members, or have much care to be involved with them.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've heard, its great. I still live on campus so I have no personal experience.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Great small, yet growing town. There are constantly new stores/restaurants popping up across town, along with having a good vibe everywhere. The town used to be quite dirty and run down because it used to be a mining town, bu it had had a complete makeover and is quite beautiful. The town is also on the river which runs through part of it, along with it being situated in the middle of the Tennessee River Valley, which brings more beauty to it overall.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I always heard about college dorms being old, musty, and small along with ALWAYS having a roommate to partake in this undelightful experience. So at UTC it is quite the opposite experience. I have my own room in which is attached to a kitchen, living room and bathroom, all of which are fairly new and nice. I have no complaints about them at all.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't encountered any of these things. As a sophomore, I have yet to even think about applying for an internship. On top of that, I am an art student in which few internships can apply to my degree.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The classes are wonderful. They are geared well to shaping us and molding us in our own ways as artists. They constantly push us to make the best art that we can make, while at the same time we are learning important tools that can apply to almost any class down the road, whether it be art or non-art.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Ive met a woman I could see marrying some point down the road, so i'd say the girls here on campus are great.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Chattanooga is the location of the internet/cable company EPB, which is known worldwide for their fiber optics usage in their trade. This usage brings high quality and fast internet almost all around the city, with the campus included.The campus is doing well with staying on top of keeping technology up to date.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Out of all of the places i've been in the world, I can say with a firm belief that Chattanooga has some of the best food I've ever tasted. The food is ALWAYS great quality and the service is normally to the same standard as well. Chattanooga overall cares deeply about making everything they make and do at the highest of quality. They are also passionate enough to share that with customers as well, which is always wonderful too.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Im an art student at UTC and don't think we could have a better staff than we do. The professors and heads of the departments simply care immensely about the students and the work that they are making. Being an artist in college is a very difficult time, but the teachers encourage us well, lead us to the right thoughts/ideas, and help us become better artists overall.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Ive heard its okay. The facility is off of campus and normally its very expensive, along with students running it or taking care of things, which is a bit unnerving.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't party at all and haven't really desired to be involved.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There really are many types of people across campus. Chattanooga is a town that is growing all the time and becoming unique in so many ways as well. Hardly any challenges, from what i've experienced, have arisen because of a diverse population.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of people get involved with our intramurals on campus. We don't really have very good varsity teams besides our basketball teams (both men and women). A lot of people attend those because our arena is a small size which brings more intimacy to each other and the players which in turn, gives a better atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Ive never really seen many drugs on campus or even people talk about them. From what I've heard, most people just drink.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses take you all around Chattanooga. Walmart and the mall is only a bus ride away. The greyhound station and airport is also a bus ride away. The taxi services run all day for those long nights out. You don't need a car to get around.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: When anyone is caught with illegal drugs, they just get a little slap on the wrist. No serious consequences that I've experienced

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We're in the middle of downtown so you can pretty much find whatever you want on the main road in the city.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I work at a sports bar in downtown Chattanooga so I see everything throughout the week. We are right next to the aquarium and the art district. There are also some cool shops near Coolidge Park.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: You constantly see the Greeks having bake sales in the UC and around campus doing things, but as a non-Greek, I rarely pay attention to what they are doing as far as helping out the community.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I usually use the computers in the library between classes so I can pass the time and get some work done. There are always computers available when I need it. The wireless connection is terrible on campus. My phone and laptop always dropped to the unsecured connection when I had it previously on the secured option.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I love the city of chattanooga. it isn't too big nor too small. Shopping here is great. There's different great local restaurants as well.

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather is sometimey here.

4 College Junior

Computers: Computer labs on campus is convenient for just about everyone. Printing cost isn't to bad. 7 cents for one sheet. The network and wifi is great. I do believe everyone should bring their own laptop to college with them or invest in one. Computer's are different needed in college.

4 College Junior

Diversity: UTC campus is very diverse. We've all kinds of students and just about everyone is accepted. I've never seen a time when someone was viewed as different because of their beliefs. We all get along no matter what color you are, your sexual orientation, or your religion.

Most students agree that UTC is a diverse school that has introduced them to a great college experience. The city of Chattanooga has a great impact on students with the many outdoors activities available and the breathtaking scenery. Chattanooga is a like a large southern city and smaller suburbs rolled into one place.The only negatives from students are the city can get boring and you have to try to meet new people to have a great experience. UTC is a great change for students who are used to bustling city life and no outdoor activities.

The campus is small enough to see the same people throughout the day but large enough to always find something to do. The wide selection of organizations to join influenced many students to stay. Greek life is popular among students and is a great way to get to know more people. The key to loving UTC is to be involved. Try everything you can do. If you don't like it, try something new. Come with an open mind and you will love the school.
