3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life, to me, is an unnecessary entity at my school. They plague the social atmosphere, reeking of beer and pizza in the meantime. While I have a negative view towards Greeks, non-Greek students in general, seem to be quite indifferent to them. There are several types of Greek housing available, such as houses, apartments, and dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at my school are incredible. The whole of the student body is always rooting for the vols, and looking forward to the next game day. The football team is highly ranked among all of the schools in the country, and several other sports teams are successful. School spirit is excellent, and nearly every student supports it. The athletic facilities are state of the art, offering new technologies that have been integrated into it. These facilities are used by varsity athletes, and intramural athletes. While varsity sports are the most recognized, intramural sports are a popular way to spend free time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, this school has been a very worthwhile investment of time and money. The education offered is second to none, and I feel surrounded by helpful and professional professors, as well as a lively and motivated student body. The school meets my educational needs and they are on the same page as me as far as career planning.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is a lot of sexual assault on campus. We get soooo many UT alerts. Most of them happen in the dorms ironically. Unfortunately, I have been a victim of rape in the dorms. I think more programs should be put in place for men to know when no means no instead of insisting ladies are the problem when most of the time they aren't the rapist.

Overall Experience: All professors are different. Some believe in quizzes and some don't. Check rate my professor always because that's the clear indicator.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: A lot of the services at UT help especially if you use them. They will help you figure out what you're passionate about and even help you get practice in the field. It's filled with great people always willing to help.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've lived in the dorms all my time at UT. I definitely recommend living on campus because it promotes you to be envolved on campus and always attend class. As for community style dorms, they are great except sometimes people can be dirty. This sucks for someone who isn't use to being around people with different living styles. Other than that you meet a lot of life long friends.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am actually apart of ?F? Sorority Inc. and it was one of the best things I decided. As a non-Greek I've always watched Greeks on campus do so many great things that it inspired me to join myself. There are many councils that Greek life is divided into. We always strive to build up our campus by combing our events and councils to promote diversity on campus. It's also very fun to outreach to students on campus as always. Unfortunately the Panhellenic council are the only Greeks that have housing. Whereas NPHC and MGC are smaller and don't have any housing.

5 College Junior

Athletics: UT sports is such a high commodity on campus. The Trecs is a great and friendly place to do all sorts of activities. It doesn't matter is you're there for a friendly intramural, a work out class, yoga, or just working out with friends. It's a great place to relax and distress from studying.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school has great professors but it also has professors that don't help when you ask. Which rarely happens. There is always something going on around campus, which is great. There are a lot of interesting people you will meet. Many clubs to join, and programs to help you adjust as long as you know where to look.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is super expensive to live on campus. I am saving myself nearly $10,000 by moving off campus. Freshman are required to by an expensive meal plan for a cafeteria that lacks variety (few fresh vegetables, almost no fresh fruits, etc). I literally lived off of salad and pizza. They do give students the option of meal equivalency, where they can use their cafeteria swipe at a restaurant, but it only covers $4.85 of the meal which isn't even the full value of the cafeteria swipe. This also has inconvenient hours.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Some of our teams aren't that great, but it is always fun to go to the events anyways because the student body is so spirited. It is a great atmosphere and almost always a fun way to spend time. It also has a great student rewards program that allows student to earn prizes for simply showing up to certain games and swiping their student ID upon entry.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It has its own police force, but the security could still use some work. Parking lots definitely need more security, but there are plenty of ways to access the police when necessary.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being there, but as an out of state student, it's a huge financial struggle. I need to be there foe my major, but I cannot receive instate tuition until grad school which I find unreasonable. I've enjoyed most of my courses and haven't really had an awful professor experiences.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: For my degree, a degree from this school is great because it is one of the best places to go for it. It also has very unique internship opportunities at the school's Forensic Anthropology Center which is the largest of the 3 in the nation.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not know much about UTK sports.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Clement Hall is the best!

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Sometimes students get over exuberant, but there is a lot of fun to be had.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: There's constant parties going on in Fort Sanders and the Frat houses.

4 College Senior

Academics: Caring professors, lots of undergrad research available, and a good amount of help given.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There's a student center for support of minority individuals, and a standing community.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: No serious drug abuse is common place. Mostly recreational.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've struggled with the course load of the Architecture program. There is a predetermined schedule of classes to take each semester, usually around 17 hours. Lots of professors seem to think that if a student is not able to handle that work load they are not fit for the program. I disagree and think it should be more accepted for students to take more time to complete the program. Some students need more time to work on studio or other classes, or perhaps have jobs or responsibilities outside of school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The architecture program seems pretty good at pushing students to build a portfolio and building connections with students through future employers through career day.

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.
