University of Tennessee Reviews
UTK is a large school that offers smaller clubs and organizations to help students feel interconnected. The numerous programs give the campus a smaller feel and allow students to forge friendships that will last a lifetime. Coming into UTK as a freshman without knowing many students in my cohort, I quickly surprised myself with how welcoming everyone is. It's great to be a Tennessee Vol!
The University of Tennessee is a great school. This school heavily emphasizes research, so if you happen to get professors who are there for research and teach because they have to then you may have a lacking experience. However, I have had wonderful professors who really care about your education. This school offered many experiences and organizations to be involved in, and I am sure I would have enjoyed college much more if I lived on campus and got involved. Overall the campus was amazing and my education was as well. You get out of it what you put into it!
The University of Tennessee has always given me positive experiences. I truly enjoy the environment that Knoxville and the campus has to offer. UTK has an energy of its own. On football game Saturdays, Knoxville is all orange and all Vol. The admissions advisors are extremely helpful, and the student ambassadors are too! I love the University of Tennessee and cannot wait to further my education there!
