4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have experience both really good and really bad professors.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe around campus. I do not like walking around by myself though late at night especially on cumberland because of the homeless constantly bugging you and getting mad.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love being on campus. It makes me not have to wake up forever early to get to my classes.

Overall Experience: The school is awesome and I enjoy going to the football games!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are people who use drugs and there are people who don't. Its all what you choose to do; not a lot of peer pressure.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UT has a wonderful student body atmosphere. The school mainly revolves around football and Greek life. Generally, most people are nice here with a few exceptions. The financial aid office is a bit difficult, though.

Overall Experience: There are many career and internship fairs that everyone should go to.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's relatively safe on campus. Once you get off-campus it's about as unsafe as any other public area. The Fort is a bit dangerous at night. Women should take precautions when going out alone at night and near the Fort.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school so much, there is just so much pride. I am from out of state and think anyone should come to this school. The parties are fun, the academics are good, and the people are great! Go Vols!

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The quality of the parties depends on where you go. Like it could depend on which frat house you go too. It has a positive impact if you take care of yourself well, but you need to always be cautious. Overall, its really fun! I love to party! Dressing up for them is my favorite part.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is great. It's the best Weds - Sat, but I'm sure there is one every night. I go to them friday and saturday nights, but that is because I have 8 ams. I sometimes still go anyways. The parties can be really fun or can be really lame, but party hopping is the most fun.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I think the academics of the school are great, but it really depends on what classes you take. If you want to take all easy classes than obviously it won't be challenging at all.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is peer pressure to drink, but they won't force you to drink it. There is a good amount of alcohol used even though it is a dry campus. I mean, it is a public college... Drugs and alcohol are everywhere and it's pretty easy to get. You just need to be careful and know your limits.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really do love UT so much. I've only been here for a month and I really love it. There is so much opportunity and it is a great place to meet people. The academics are great and so are the sports, and people take a lot of pride in their school. I love how everyone takes so much pride in this place and it makes us seem like a big family. I go around my original hometown and other Vols will come up to me, and it is an awesome feeling! This place is really a great place, especially if you get out there and make the best of it! It is a large school and pretty close to the city, so that gives even more opportunities to explore Knoxville. I would recommend this school if you want the full college experience!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've visited the career center. It seems like it is a great place and job and internships won't be that hard to get. I haven't really experienced it myself though, so this review isn't the most helpful.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe all the time. I am a girl, and I can be vulnerable, so I don't usually walk around alone at night. I am usually in a group. I had to one time, and it really wasn't that bad. I didn't feel threatened or scared. There are blue light phones all around campus, and police are on campus too, so it's pretty safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Hess right now. I actually don't mind the rooms. My bed is raised up so I have a desk underneath, and then my roommate took her desk out and put a futon there instead. The rooms are pretty small in Hess, but the location of Hess is great. It's near all of my classes. I really like Dippers and the POD market; it's really convenient. I don't mind community style, but I don't really like it. I just have to live with it. I am really hoping to get an apartment for sophomore year. But everyone here is really friendly and I like how I met people living near me and got to know them pretty well! It is co-ed, but the guys are on the other side of the building, so it doesn't really feel that co-ed to me. Overall, it's really not the worst housing but there are definitely better options.

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.
