4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Hottest people ever go to UTK, it is a proven fact.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I've been dating my high school sweetheart for three years, so I'm not on the dating scene, but from what I understand it's mostly short-lived relationships and hookups. Some people are looking for long term relationships though. Basically everyone is really preppy and likes to party, but some people don't.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Girls are pretty attractive. Theres are a ton of people so it's kind of hard to lump them into one group.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

A walk around campus on a warm September afternoon says it all. Unless you remain confined within dorm walls, you will meet more members of the opposite sex than you could ever hope to remember. Don't worry, though, you'll remember the important ones! Your selection is extremely wide. If a particular guy or girl makes you yawn-next!

Great looks, a fancy car, and impeccable clothing do not always guarantee success with the opposite sex at UT. The common denominator among those truly successful with the opposite sex is a positive attitude and confidence. The outside appearance will only get you so far, especially if you are in it for more than mere casual encounters. In conclusion, there is a huge amount of different types of guys and girls to choose from. Whether you seek a friend, a date, a hookup, or a relationship, there are unlimited choices. You will enjoy meeting the friendly and laid-back students of UT.
