3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: From stories I hear from my friends and classmates, I was lucky with my apartment that I found. It is right off of campus, so close that I can still use the wifi and walk to class on most days. Parking is fairly easy on my road, Lake Avenue, and my landlord is pretty helpful and nice. The cost is a bit pricey but worth the extra amnetites like laundry, own room, kitchen, and AC.

Party Scene: The party scene is pretty swell, if you can find a party. If you walk down the streets in the fort, it is easy to come across a handful of parties here and there. Unfortunately UTPD and KPD use all of their might to eliminate these parties which is bolluxs.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are ideal for those that live off campus but they are still a tad on the pricey side. There are also very few of them, which is unfortunate, and barely give out student discounts.

3 College Junior

Administration: Campus strictness varies across the board in school policies that affect us as students. The dry campus aspect of UT is quite ridiculous because it is in effect except on days with football games. If you are going to be lenient and supportive of drinking on certain days, that takes away the legality in general of the policy.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: While the dining halls are located throughout campus, the variety and health of the food is very limited and scarce, despite the amount of money we as students place into the area. The best place, by far, on campus is Field of Greens. The downside of it are the hours of operation and not open on the weekends. If field of greens ever closes, they will have hundreds of UT students to deal with.

Scholarships: I was unable to receive financial aid for any of the years I have attended college. Even though my parents work and support me, money is not always easy to come by and my sister needs their support as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing here was a valuable experience as it really transitioned me into the life of a college student but the facilities were not up to par with my living standards. Overall the dorms were old and musty, but kept fairly clean. Fortunately UT has a plan to redo all of the dorms so that will make the living experience better. On the downside, the roommate process was not reasonable and I was stuck with a horrible roommate for the entire year that would not talk to me. Perhaps a survey for each individual would be more appropriate than total randomization.

Off-Campus Dining: Seems to be pretty diverse while still having the essentials.

Administration: There doesn't seem to be any kind of policies that have interfered on my experience but I have not heard of all the policies, nor am I planning to.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial Aid is pretty hard to get, no matter where you go. At UTK, they have all the facilities for financial aid, registrar and bursar office all in one place called OneStop. It's actually pretty convenient. Despite my problems so far, they are mostly because of the loan company and not the fault of the school.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good options on the strip, but you will find yourself going to Cookout more often than you'd think

Campus Food: Aramark is the worst. Everything is overpriced and of poor quality.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living in Morrill for my freshman year. Even though I had a terrible roommate, the room itself was nice and the people were friendly.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The residence hall I was in was ok. There was a lot of alcohol consumption on my floor even though there wasn't supposed to be . This was because of the RA. He would actually buy alcohol. This led me to not get acquainted with my floor mates. The rooms are very small.

Party Scene: There are a lot of drugs and alcohol, especially for a dry campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The strip is very close but doesn't take dining dollars. There needs to be a waffle house on the strip or close to campus.

1 College Freshman

Administration: It's the worst. They don't enforce drinking rules at all. This is supposed to be a dry campus but was exactly the opposite.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They are very hard to get.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in PCB is ok at best. The meal equivalency is way too low. The unlimited meal plan doesn't mean you can go anywhere at anytime and get something to eat. You also can only use your meal equivalency at only one place in each meal period. The PCB should be open to at least nine o'clock.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: My favorite place to eat on campus is Einstein's.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not really experienced the party scene yet, but I hear it's okay.

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.
