3 College Freshman

Athletics: Great athletics for a small shcool, very communal

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Most people seem to love the sports on campus, but if you don't then it is fine.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports is still something utc hasn't gained much popularity on.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Lots of school spirit. Everytime you pass by UTC i almost positive that someone will yell "GO MOCS". It's pretty wonderful and our teams are all worth cheering for.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The football team is not very good, games are boring to attend... REC center is very nice. I don't know much about intramurals or clubs...

Sports do not define UTC. Varsity sports do not get much attention on campus. Football is not a strong sport that whips up a lot of school spirit at UTC. The men's and women's basketball programs are more popular among students and the community. Both teams often end up in tournaments. The men's team recently won a spot in the Sweet 16, and the women are notorious for winning the Southern Conference Tournament every year. Wrestling, club baseball, softball, and the tennis teams are lesser known but very good. 

Intramural sports are very popular with the student body and Greeks. There are many different intramural sports, and students often watch the teams play. The only complaints among students are that the games are not very organized and are often rescheduled without prior notice.

School Spirit
Students are spirited about their academic departments, but athletic school spirit is not strong because none of the sports teams is large or in the same category as neighboring schools. School paraphernalia, however, is very popular for T-shirts, hoodies, and hats.
Getting Tickets
Since athletics are not huge, it is easy to get tickets to any sporting events as a student, and they are always free. You simply show up to the event and present your student ID. At a game against a big university, however, sometimes tickets will have a high demand, so they will pass out tickets a couple days early with proof of a student ID.
