The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has so much to offer, not only academically. UTC offers many extracurricular activities, while strongly promoting the importance of getting involved with the community. They also offer help. Coming into this school knowing nothing about Chattanooga itself, the staff here at UTC has broadened my horizons and made me quite comfortable in a setting that I was completely unfamiliar with. Academically, this school is top notch. All of the professors that I have encountered thus far have been nothing but kind and willing to help. Although it is challenging, UTC offers much outside help in order to insure that you succeed. All in all, UTC has been an amazing experience. I would recommend this school to any and everyone!
Review University of Tennessee - Chattanooga
Overall, I have loved my experience at UTC. There are so many ways to get involved on this campus so you will never feel left out or out of place. The campus is beautiful. It's not too big so you feel like you're just a number, but it's not too small that you'll feel like you're still at high school. Chattanooga is packed with fun stuff to do so you'll never get bored. All The professors are very helpful and kind, based on the ones I have had. While the athletics here are not much of a big deal, we do have all of the sports you could want. The dorms are pretty nice for college housing. I had my own room freshman year, and shared a bathroom, living room and kitchen with my 3 roommates. The food in the cafeteria isn't the best, but the options in the food court (moes, Chick-fil-A, which wich, etc) were all pretty good. When it comes to parties, if you're looking for one you will find one. Overall, I love Chattanooga and all it has to offer. UTC is a great school!
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is an affordable and vibrant community. With just over 12,000 students, UTC provides a wonderful opportunity for students who don't want a small or large college experience. The faculty in most departments genuinely care for their students and go out of their way in order to ensure that they grow both in a personal and academic sense. As far as student organizations go, UTC has over 100 organizations with new ones being created everyday. Found in the heart of Chattanooga, this metropolitan university is just a short distance away from the vibrant community of Chattanooga and all its outdoor opportunities. As a senior here at UTC, I am very pleased with my experience and would encourage any person considering UTC as a choice to apply. These four years have genuinely provided me with unique opportunities both personally, academically, and professionally.
