Aside from the obvious emphasis on the Volunteers Football, the state-of-the-art Neyland Stadium, and the pride that goes along with being a Volunteer, I feel that UT generates an atmosphere of general health and wellness. Any sport or activity provided on campus is strongly encouraged and supported by the facility and administration and students of all walks of life are encouraged to get involved on some level and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle while a student at UT. From the exhilaration of game day to the well equipped, clean, and maintained gymnasium and TRecs (the rec center) to the various intramural sports available, the atheltics at our school are supported, encouraged and generally well-rounded and inclusive. Additionally, our school spirit is unmatched!

University of Tennessee is a wonderful school! The campus and surrounding area are very beautiful year round, yet a little hilly. Watch out engineering or chemistry students, those buildings are up "the hill" so prepare for that daily workout! Student life is actively and responsive to changes that happen both locally and nationally, and students are not afraid to voice their opinions in this safe school environment. The teachers are very genuine and want you to succeed to the best of your ability. The University of Tennessee is definitely worth noticing. Oh yeah, and Tennessee football is the best in the SEC!

Being an entering freshman, I have not officially sat in a classroom and begun coursework with individual Professors. However, I can comment as to the support and ease of signing up for courses, as well as the overall accessibility of the courses I wish to take and the variety of courses that support my major. I was able to quickly and easily meet with Dr. Kojima and hash out which direction my studies would need to take in order to achieve my goals. She and I were able to choose the appropriate courses for my major, select times for classes that worked well within my schedule, and agree upon which courses I should take and why. This is just another instance where I have had very positive experiences with UT and the Professors, Advisors and Faculty. Even down to the fact that a majority of my classes, despite having thousands of students enrolled at UT, may only have 25-30 students in each class. These are high school numbers which will only serve to further support me and the other students. Hats off!
