University of Tennessee Reviews
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!
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.
