University of Tennessee Reviews
In the middle of the spring semester, every class turned online. I believe that all my professors did an amazing job with the transition. I must say it was quite rocky at first but eventually, everyone stook together and got through it. I believe that zoom was incredibly helpful and convenient for teachers to communicate with their students. A suggestion that I would make is that the all teachers have a couple of hours of office hours in order for any questions to be asked. In addition, I know a lot of my peers were struggling with technology errors, so I hope next semester there are better ways to handle technological difficulties. Overall. I believe that online classes were still a huge success!
For my freshman year at college, I had several great experiences. Specifically, I made several new friends and increased my connections to professors and lecturers. In addition, I love going to TRECS where I could work out after my classes or play basketball with my friends. The best thing at the University of Tennessee has to be football games. The entire stadium is filled, screaming "Rocky Top" is definitely an amazing experience. Even though last semester got cut short due to coronavirus, I can not wait for what sophomore year holds!
I am so happy at the University of Tennessee! I am an out-of-state student, and before college, I knew nobody else going to UTK. However, the family-like atmosphere here has made made me feel very welcomed and at home! Everyone on this campus truly wants to see the university and its students succeed. There is so much to do and get involved in on campus, whether that be with academics, sports, clubs, Greek life, etc., and the academics are strong. Overall, it's a great university and I am proud to be a Volunteer!
