University of Tennessee - Martin Reviews
The University of Tennessee at Martin has been voted as one of the safest college campuses in the country. Martin, TN is a charming small town with good amazingly, friendly people and this carries on into its university's staff. UTM's staff works hard to ensure a family-oriented learning environment for its students while offering any help necessary to make sure students are successful. Staff members serve as life/academic mentors all four years of your time there. Excellent university! Excellent community!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at UTM. I was a Biology major, so I did not participate in greek life for personal reasons. Now looking back I wish I had. Martin TN is a small town with not a whole lot going on, which I preferred because I got to focus and with the whole campus being only a 10 minute walk across I always felt safe and secure. My freshman year I lived on campus in an on campus apartment, then my sophomore year I moved off of campus into a student apartment complex. Even though Martin is a small town, it is full of life if you choose to venture out and participate in the cities festivities such as the annual soybean festival and other Rotory club sponsored activities. If I had to go back I would choose Martin time and time again. I met the love on my life in Martin and for that and for my amazing undergraduate experience I will be forever grateful!
I honestly love the environment the most. I knew it was the school for me once I met the university chancellor and he actually stopped and had a conversation with me. It was very surprising because usually school administration aren't as nice and aren't as close with their students. Every semester since I started my freshman year, our chancellor has always been welcoming and happy to see us. The advising administration were also very nice and it really makes the students feel confident and comfortable knowing that we have someone that's on our side and ready to see us succeed. So far, being a UTM skyhawk has been an amazing , eye-opening experience. I can truly say, I love my university.
