Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing varies greatly depending on your proximity to UTC. Places far away are desperate so they're cheaper and probably a better value. Places super close to UTC overcharge because they can, and are generally poor quality. Certain neighborhoods like Highland Park are very sketchy and have a lot of theft.

Off-Campus Dining: Restaurants in Chattanooga are the best. Seriously. Everything is delicious!

2 College Senior

Administration: They say they care about students but mostly make poor decisions when it comes to things students actually care about.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I got an academic provost scholarship as well as HOPE and as long as you don't screw up and fail classes you're okay. Oh, and be careful of how many hours you take with HOPE.

College Senior

Party Scene: I don't really party. Partying is for those in greek life and people who love drinking and bad rap music. The best parties are with your immediate friends who respect you and your decisions. Don't be tempted by peer pressure to go to parties or do things at parties you don't want to do. Seriously, most of the parties are overrated anyway.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: There's very few actually healthy options, and the best tasting food places are the most crowded. The campus dining employees range from kind of rude to extremely rude.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus (in South Campus dorms) for three years, and it is definitely the most convenient option for walking to class. Signing up for housing is the absolute worst, and I would recommend knowing your roommates rather than having random roommates, but overall I'd say it was a good experience. If you're living in South Campus, it can get pretty noisy though. Bring headphones!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live off-campus and I love it. Having the freedom to live in your own place and not have an RA coming to check on you is great. On the flip side, I wish I lived closer to campus and that I didn't have to pay month to month.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am a Greek student on campus and I believe that we are able to bring spirit to the school! I am sure that some people may not understand the Greek community or why anyone would want to be a Greek but we all have respect for one another and we don't look down upon anyone that is not Greek. It is a choice to become more involved in your school and community because by joining a fraternity or sorority you are able to make positive changes by giving back through volunteering and contributing to philanthropic events.

Local Area: I believe that Chattanooga has a variety of attractions for people. We are able to cater to a large amount of people whether you are going to the hang out downtown for the nightlife scene, or it's a date night, and even many things to bring your kids to. Chattanooga is a wonderful city with lots of options!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never had a safety problem on campus and I know that our school has a great security team watching out for the students and faculty.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally enjoyed living on campus. The atmosphere, cleanliness, and parking were all fabulous. The only thing I would change would be the process of getting selected into housing. It is a bit of a mess and it feels like you are a heard of sheep all trying to squeeze into a small barn. There is just not enough on-campus housing to accommodate every student who wants to live there.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics at my school are great! I believe the general education courses that students must take before they are able to advance in their major are not a great. They are not as great because teachers sometimes speed through material and the classes are generally larger with less time for questions and less time to actual retain the information. Once you are able to take classes specifically for your major then the class size becomes smaller and the teachers are able to pay more attention to you, resulting in every student getting a valuable education in their major.

Majors: My program is Business Marketing. I have not had any struggles with getting into it. I simply have to complete my gen Ed requirements to be an official Business Marketing major. There are a few simple classes that I must get a C or better in such as Comp 1&2, a Microsoft office course, and macro and micro economics.

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are wonderful! Some of the could better be described as apartments as they include kitchens, double bath, and 4 bedrooms. UTC has done a wonderful job with their on campus housing.

Health & Safety: I have not personally had to worry about safety or security issues on campus, so I would say due to that fact it is in good shape. If I did have any security issues, I would know exactly where to go and feel confident that I would be helped by the UTC campus police.

Local Area: Chattanooga is a beautiful city where there is always something going on. From the typical tourist attractions such as the walking bridge, the aquarium, and the hunter museum, to the fun seasonal attractions such as outdoor ice skating, nightfall, and riverbend, there is always something to do in Chattanooga!

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus, there are numerous places to live within downtown Chattanooga, making the drive 5 minutes at most, or within walking distance. There are also many options within the suburbs of Chattanooga which are between 10-15 minutes away.

Party Scene: I know very little about the party scene on campus. Greek Life is said to throw the best ones, but I have not experienced it for myself.

Greek Life: Greek Life is rather popular on campus, but as I am not a part of it I do not have a strong opinion of it. The friends I have that do participate in it are always busy with activities that their chapters are doing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
