3 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is currently Child and Family Studies with a minor in Psychology. I would love our campus to develop a Child Life Specialist program. We do not offer this major so I have to pull certain classes from different majors which I am completely fine with, beause it will give me more options when I am entering the work field. My only concern is that the Child Life Specialist field is very competative.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The only concern is that UTK does not offer Child Life Specialist, so I may be lacking some courses that are specifically designed for Child Life Specialist majors.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We are located near Markey Square which allows for a lively atmosphere at night. We are about 10 minutes away from the West Town Mall and 20 minutes away from Turkey Creek which provides more opportunities for shopping.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our buses run constantly so their should be no reason for someone to not get to glass because of lack of transportation.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I do see campus police driving around and giving individuals tickets, but I would like for more campus police to be in parking garages. Most of out robberies take place in our parking garages.

4 College Freshman

Computers: It meets my needs most of the time.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have not received any financial aid even though I pay for most of my schooling so I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to attend UT.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of places to eat.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: the T is my best friend.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Some days it will start of hot and end cold and rainy, but that's TN weather for you.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus so I don't quite know that much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Strict sometimes, other times they don't notice. It completely depends on who the officer/enforcer is.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a ton of diversity.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Vols have the best fan support, hands down.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I do not understand this question.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's not as crazy as I thought it would be but there are still parties and events to go to every weekend.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There isn't much to say about the strictness here on campus. You are in college. You are finally an ADULT. RA's and Hall Directors are just here to make sure nothing too crazy or wild goes on. You have to be responsible enough to make the decisions that you think will be the best for your fUTure.

4 College Freshman

Computers: BRING YOUR OWN PERSONAL COMPUTER AND PRINTER. I cannot stress that enough. The availability of computer labs are fine here on campus, but it is general knowledge that you will need that here at UT.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Personally, I absolutely relish the time that I get to spend going to eat out on the strip or downtown in Market Square. The dining options are plentiful and the price-range varies depending on whatever you are willing to pay.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you are LUCKY enough to receive a scholarship and have the ability to maintain that scholarship then you should be set here at UT. Being such a large university, they struggle with availability for financial aid, but I suppose all schools deal with that problem. It does seem to me that Tennessee could have more scholarship offers out there.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Although I do not live off campus this year, I will be next year. As far as I can tell, the off-campus housing is an excellent choice for second year and up students. I say that because I believe all students should experience their first year living in the close-quarters of the dorm life.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall, the police presence is not overbearing, but I feel safe at all times when walking around campus during the night or day. The only crime that goes on is across the strip, away from the main campus. Other than those few incidents, most people here in presidential court feel very safe day-in and day-out.

4 College Junior

Academics: Depending on which section and class it is, most are great with very respectable teachers

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: You do not see people using and abusing, but it is present on campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: On rainy days it is horrible. The buses aren't on time and is bad...but the other days it is good

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.
