3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is some underage drinking, but nothing out of the ordinary for a large campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT is a respected University with TONS of Alumni presence and workforce support. Job fairs are always happening, and it is easy to get help finding internships and practicums that lead to jobs.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a double major in a large program and a small program, I get to experience both sides of UT. Some classes are very large and competitive, and others are small, personal, and insightful. I have had great professors who are willing to help and want students to grow as adults and professionals. Other students are very supportive and approachable as well. Resources available to students are abundant.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is certainly a strong support for victims of assault and a strong initiative to make sure environments are safe. However, some areas of campus can be dangerous after dark.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings themselves are nice, but the housing process is an absolute nightmare at times, and dorms are not finished when they are supposed to open. Construction crews are almost always late. Big Orange Screw in this area.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life by a pro-Greek standard is a dream. If you are non-Greek, you can certainly make many friends (in or out of sororities and fraternities), but they are cliquey and somewhat rude. Separated for sure.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is no atmosphere that compares to Neyland Stadium on a Saturday in the fall. 102,455 people singing "Rocky Top" in harmony to cheer on the Vols. 8-time National Championship Women's Basketball. Rocky Top is like no other.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Faculty is knowledgable and willing to help. Athletics are GREAT, as well as the arts. Great place to live and work (and play).

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are average. The professors love what they do and you can tell that they do. Their passion can be seen in the way they teach and through their vast office hours.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The university of Tennessee has many connections in the professional world. To achieve an internship, you have to be applied to your cause. When professors and administrators see that, they will do everything they can to get you into an internship in your respective field.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never feel unsafe at this school. Now regarding female safety, I have asked multiple female friends and they said that they couldn't feel safer at this school. We have an honor code, but we still lock our equipment up because there are those few who don't believe in the honor code.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything on campus is about 15 minutes from any dorm! I love it! There is not a bad hall to stay at! Every all ha dining options nearby!

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: You don't have to be in Greek life to be cool. It is plenty easy to make friends and interact with the community without having to join Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a belief throughout the school that we have to be the best in EVERYTHING. When I say everything I mean it. We as students never settle until we are the best at whatever it is we are doing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school. Ever since I've applied and gone through orientation, the faculty and administration have been helpful to the Nth degree. I would not have done it any other way.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am in the best dorms but they are espensive

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life seems alright I'm not involved though.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: UTK has a great sports program.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love UTK I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Right on the side of campus is a little clinic that I have gone to a couple times myself, and besides the medication, the service was great. Students do not have a reason to feel unsafe because our motto is to be inVOLved and not to just let things happen. With health, even things like HIV and STDs, our library hosted events to where students could be tested for HIV. There are also many other things that go on that simply add ease to the college experience.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is an endless amount of classes that one can choose from, and each class style varies depending on the topic and the teacher. All classes are interactive, but some classes are more lecture while others are much more like discussions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are people recruiting from all over the world and they work with the counselors and host events and so much more. Often times, it is who you know that can determine what your next steps will be, but at the same time hard work is not unnoticed.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It depends on quite a few things such as the type of housing and I personally do not even stay on campus, but I've been in most of the dorms. The cost can be expensive, but it depends on the financial aid. They have very new dorms as well as older dorms and each can come with extra perks. Another things about campus housing is the gender type because they have community style as well as all male or female dorms. So basically, anyone can have any kind of housing, but it's first come first serve.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved with it, but the Greeks are a little snobby, but not extremely. I hear they throw good parties and the housing is the absolute best on campus. The atmosphere of campus with them involved is slightly mistrusting, but at the same time secure.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students bleed orange for Rocky Top and the school spirit is unbelievable. Even if people never attended the school, the football game has all of Knoxville in Orange.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
