4 College Sophomore

Academics: UT has many programs offered, all with incredibly competent and helpful faculty to better you for professional life and expand your education. No matter what major you choose, you get to experience a little bit of everything. The demands are rigorous as this is a major university, but well worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The University of Tennessee's athletics department is an important aspect to the school. My major is Kinesiology and Exercise Science which is a very popular major on campus. This major helps the athletic facilities up. The fan support is very great at the university. There is support from the student body for the football and basketball team. Student involvement is good on campus also. There is always something going on on campus. Student life is great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is great school spirit at The University of Tennessee. Professors are willing to help students who are willing to work hard. As long as a student shows up to class, completes all assignments, and attends office hours, professors are so helpful. The University of Tennessee has an awesome staff of English teachers. English is not my best subject; took English 101 and 102 at the university and made a B in both classes due to me attending office hours and receiving help. I also utilized the writing center in which they review students' papers and give feedback on them.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teaching styles of many professors makes it hard to learn, and a lot of them are horrible about posting grades, so it takes a lot of time and effort to figure out grades. However, many professors are willing to curve grades in order to help the students who may not have done so well on assignments.

Overall Experience: I don't have much experience in this part yet, so I can't really give an accurate review.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Camus itself is pretty safe. As a woman on campus, I have walked alone at night across campus and never felt unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never had any issues while living on campus. My dorm was close to classes and I never felt unsafe there. Everyone was pretty friendly and our RA was always willing to help

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't have much knowledge or will to know about Greek life. I've never been interested in sorieties and I know the people that try to be a part of them, and I'm just not interested. I've find my own group of people and don't need Greek life to make friends.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a large part of this school especially when it's football season. The whole university takes part in it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have learned a lot through this school- although most of my learning so far has been outside of the classroom. The teachers do what they can, but through the clubs and my job on campus, I have learned more and been able to expand my knowledge that way. It has really forced me to open my eyes more to how the world works.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Most teachers are willing to provide you any help you need if you're willing to seek it. Most classes are challenging enough but not impossible, and there are still some classes offered if you need an easy A for gen ed or credit requirements. There are plenty of majors to explore.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are plenty of clubs and organizations to join that will either promote diversity or provide a place for it. It's not perfect, but it is on its way

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They say "drug free" and "dry campus", but they don't really take any action to prevent in unless you are caught using it. Even then, the "zero tolerance" is lenient

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not involved in the bar club scene. Parties are held at fraternity houses and transportation is available.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It always depends on the individual. These statements can not be generalized in my opinion. Some individuals attend parties to meet others and get to know people which is why parties should be attended.

4 College Freshman

Academics: UT is a challenging academic university

4 College Freshman

Diversity: UT has a diverse enrollment.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: At any campus or any school, one can find whatever one is looking for.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are interesting and challenging. The professors are helpful and caring.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school of interior design is one of the best in the US.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There needs to be more student agreement and involvement in anti-sexual assault campaigns

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are getting better with the renovations being made, but sharing a room with one person and a bathroom with 3 others is intrusive and exhausting for the amount of money being paid for housing.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It is more difficult for females joining sororities than for the guys joining fraternity

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.
