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!
The food court needs serious revision, the workers don't care at all about their job. The workers serve nasty food and are not very sanitary when they are working. And the food court services are way over priced. sometimes the professors have a "i dont care" attitude, and sometimes they go above and beyond to help you. the housing staff is very rude and provide crappy services. The RA/s are always very nice! Lots of campus events for free going on all the time
