4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It is definitely known that UT is a big drinking school, so the university is definitely aware of it. The provide the late night bus, so that students will not drink in drive. Instead of trying to stop it they just want to make sure the students are safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is not too strict. They get whatever needs to be done, but are not overbearing.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It is never too cold, which I love. There is nothing like east Tennessee weather. It's the absolute best!

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The university provides a bus that goes all day long and takes students to classes. Then on the weekends there is a late night bus that will drive you to different social events so you do not have to walk at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They aren't the best, but you can definitely make the best of it! You get to be very close with everyone on your floor and all the dorms are super close to your classes.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am an in the school of business and it is wonderful! All the professors are super helpful and you really get to know the other students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: All internships are pretty time consuming, but well worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in off campus housing and I absolutely love it. There are definitely some crappy off campus apartments and houses, but if you look hard you'll find what you're looking for.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I walk a mile to a from classes everyday ALONE. As a girl everyone is always telling you that is unsafe, but really I see tons of college students doing the same thing every day and I have never had any issues.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid will be a hassle anywhere you go. UT is no different.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is a wonderful to meet new people and to network. I highly recommend it if you are coming to The University of Tennessee without knowing a lot of people.

3 College Junior

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.

Nightlife: Hard with 100,000+ people walking around but the "flow" of things would help with signs of direction or vacany

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.
