Academics: Competitive. If you are an average student you get the short end of the stick.

Greek Life: Lots of Greek life. Though in the past few years they have given the school a very bad name worldwide.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I do not partake in drinking or doing drugs, but from what I know, they are easy to get ahold of.

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is college food. To receive luxury dining is not why I am at school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I started college at a very small private school. The Univ. of Tenn. is much better at deciding which parts need stricter laws for the social and academic lives of their students. I am so happy at UT, and I am happy I transferred.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places but going anywhere and getting back on camps to park is a nightmare.

Campus Strictness: Sad what they seem most worried about is parking.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are tiny, super thin walls. They are okay, but parking is horrible if you have to leave campus often for work, etc.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I was in a professional sorority but avoided Panhellenic. If you want to go that route though, they just got a bunch of fancy houses.

UT draws students from all over, and it is little wonder why. UT has a personality all its own. The level of pride and tradition here is among the strongest in the country, and the amount of support Knoxville has for UT is amazing, especially with sports. You will love the laid-back Southern style UT has to offer, and you will enjoy spending time with the people you meet here. Ask any UT alumni about their most positive life experiences, and I guarantee you that most of those experiences will have occurred at UT.

It is understandable to see how UT can appear intimidating on paper, especially to those coming from a small town. There are many different activities to become involved in, and they are yours for the taking if you are willing to make the effort and work hard. The key to success at UT, as well as any college, is to learn to manage your time properly. As long as you remember that education is the main reason for coming to UT and prioritize accordingly, you will be very happy during your college days.
