University of Tennessee Reviews
Love the University of Tennessee! The university is currently undergoing a lot of construction/renovations and the results are great. New student union, dorms, and parking being built now. If you like sports you can attend any sporting event for free except for football games which are just $10. Most of my professors I had the first semester were very good/helpful. I've learned to check "rate my professor" for future classes. There is also a wide variety of dining choices on campus, almost 40 to choose from. Multiple choices on dining plans as well.
I transferred here to University of Tennessee six months ago, and I've really enjoyed it! The student atmosphere here is really relaxed, and I've had some really great professors. There are always a ton of great student organizations to join- it's hard to NOT get involved. The Howard Baker Center for Public Policy always offers a ton of opportunities- I go to a ton of the academic seminars after class. I've also been able to transfer all my credit from my previous college and high school classes- UT does make it possible to graduate a semester early.
I loved the classes in my major, but I did have to take a lot of gen eds (though really everyone has to take them.) Once I got into my major my advisors were great, but the general advisors were not as good. I ended up taking a few classes that actually put me behind where I had to take summer classes. One thing to consider is that you have to do really well on AP tests for them to count as college credit! UT gives great field experience, especially for elementary education majors! Would highly recommend studying education here!
