I am a current student here at the University of Tennessee at Martin. I enrolled in school the year of 2015.
Ever since i moved here, I have been focused on my career more than I have ever been.
I enjoy living in this town and I also enjoy that I've met some really nice people here.
I would recommend this school to anyone interested in starting school.
I would also recommend this town to anyone the loves a natural "home" feeling when considering moving.
I live in Martin, Tennessee as a college student. I love the small town life. The people here are so friendly and happy. Everyone is welcoming no matter where you go.
