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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At first the university may seem intimidating and one might get a little lost before class, but everywhere you turn your head, there is someone who can help. There is no reason why students can't get the help they need because there is an endless amount of resources and even when the semester ends, there are ways to stay out of trouble, relax and unwind.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Campus culture is like none other! Everyone has a strong sense of school pride.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes vary on the subject, but It has never affected me. The professors are nice and easy to talk to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career services on campus are phenomenal. They give you so many opportunities to find jobs and internships in your field of study.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They provide late night buses, 911/police department push buttons, and other things that help make our campus feel safer. In addition there is always campus police on duty willing to help.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are many, many different Greek clubs to join. Greek life gives a fun vibe to the campus and it really wouldn't be the same without it. The sororities and fraternities both have little villages sectioned off from the rest of campus where all the Greek houses are located.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: GO BIG ORANGE! It is incredible to attend a UT sporting event and be surrounded by all your fellow Vols.

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.
