3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining options in the UC are good. Eating on campus can be very expensive though. It would be better if there were healthier options (there is one called Field of Greens). Campus food tends to be overpriced.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good because it's convenient to classes and you can meet lots of people. The dorms are cleaned on a regular basis (usually Monday, Wednesday, Friday). The con is that they are more expensive then surrounding apartments and if you live in a dorm you a required to purchase a meal plan which is also very expensive.

Scholarships: It's hard to keep track of deadlines

College Freshman

Party Scene: I haven't been to any parties. Not my scene.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm sick of the campus dining. It is either fried or really unhealthy. I usually just get sandwiches from the POD Markets

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms are outdated and need remodeled but there are a few brand new dorms that are very nice. Fred Brown Jr. Hall is by far the nicest dorm on campus but is reserved for honors students and athetes.

Off-Campus Housing: From what I hear, most places are average quality for average price or average quality for unreasonable price. Regardless, living off campus is so worth it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It is great that the strip is so close and provides so many options. Many places stay open until only 10, but there are a few that stay open really late.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus strictness averages out. There is more strictness with certain things than others. Professors basically do as they please while parking tickets are given literally 5 minutes after the car is parked.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is super easy to gain access to your financial statements and financial awards. The university is pretty fair in providing financial aid.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Pretty much every night there is something going on. While most things happen Thursdays through Saturdays, it is always possible to find something any other night except maybe Sunday. Everybody is so fun and nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options to choose from at any place on campus. While they do not offer the best quality/nutritious food, the university is very interested in changing this to suite the needs of its students.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is such a convenient option. The university is currently working on updating all the housing, so campus housing will soon be even better. Although the housing has seen some years, renovations and upkeep on each is great. It is a very livable space.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Very dirty and the food sucked.

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and haven't looked into off-campus housing much.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat off campus often. I only rate by what I know of the restaurants there.

1 College Freshman

Administration: I don't feel like the rules and policies are adhered to like they should be. In fact, I've had issues with this exact problem (visitation) the past two semesters and it was not taken seriously.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive any help from the school even though I graduated with a 4.0 and valedictorian at my high school.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't attend any parties.

College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't use any of the on-campus dining very often. I buy food at a market and prepare it myself.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a student at UT is amazing. Sports brings the entire campus together. While Tennessee football hasn't done that well in the past, things are looking up with Butch Jones as head coach. He is amazing! The traditions that occur during football season and every Saturday in the fall bring or 100,000 people to cheer on our Vols! The Pride of the Southland Marching Band is the backbone to the bleeding orange spirit that is tangible every football Saturday. The band gets the crowd pumped for the Vol Walk and for March to the Stadium. It is a crazy time. My favorite time of year!

Off-Campus Housing: I am only just now getting off-campus housing. I will be moving in the fall. It was relatively easy to obtain a lease. I love who my landlord is. My house will be 5 minutes from campus.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat on The Strip (aka Cumberland Avenue). Everything is in walking distance. There are multiple fast food restaurants which vary in cost from a lot of food for cheep to a lot of food for $12. There are multiple restaurants and sports bars for varying costs. My favorite place to eat on the strip is Copper Cellar. They have $5 burger night on Wednesdays and non-football weekends (Saturday and after 3 on Sunday).

Administration: I haven't had any problems with anything really, so I don't know how strict the administration is anyway.

Scholarships: Apply for aid early and keep applying! There isn't much else you can do. If you don't apply, you won't get any aid.

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.
