"Prior to starting college, I was very hesitant of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), because some individuals view the university as a knock off University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK). Overall, I could not be happier with my decision to attend UTC. I cannot say enough great things about this school and their faculty. Every individual who works on campus has a purpose, and every individual I met while on campus was kind. Furthermore, the campus is extremely beautiful. The campus is old, yet modern. The fall is my favorite time of year to be at UTC. Before I transferred to UTC I attended a community college where I also studied Criminal Justice. In my opinion, the Criminal Justice program at UTC is one of the best. The professors are experienced in the field, which makes for great stories, examples, and life lessons. The professors are also very well educated in the subjects that they teach, and even the subjects that they do not teach. The professors have an open-door policy, so I was able to walk in their office any time I had a question or concern. I never had a professor I did not thoroughly enjoy while attending The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The professors would go above and beyond for their students, including myself, and I honestly do not think that their hard work and dedication receives enough credit. If I had to do it all over again I would choose the same university without hesitation."

"This University was the highlight of my life. College is one of the best times of your life! Chattanooga is a wonderful place with plenty of activities to do outdoors and indoors. The city is growing more and more every year. The Criminal Justice program there was great! I loved all the professors and students. It was a wonderful atmosphere. No doubt the best college in Tennessee, in my opinion. College is the place where you'll meet your lifelong friends. You'll enjoy every bit of the college experience here at UTC."

"I love UTC! I chose to come to UTC when I was only a junior in high school and it's been one of the best decisions I have ever made. After my first semester I was not doing so well and thanks to the faculty and staff here at UTC so many professionals help me get back on right path. I now have orientation leader, tour guide, dance team and homecoming queen under my belt! This campus and Chattanooga community has helped me mold myself into the woman I've always dreamt of becoming! Go Mocs!"

"The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is an excellent school that is often overshadowed by the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. The school hosts an amazing business school and top notch honors program. The city of Chattanooga also has so much to offer with the mountains and lakes nearby. In addition it is a very affordable place to live. The professors at the school really care about teaching and the students. I could not recommend it more!"

"No school is perfect. But I was able to land a full time job weeks after graduation because of my instructors and my boss from my on-campus job. I personally never had an issue with safety and living on campus for years was a great experience all around for me."

"At UTC the field of Psychology is taken seriously. I had several industry-leading instructors during my time at UTC. Ralph Hood, whom I assume is still teaching basically created the field of "Psychology of Religion". His classes contain the most interesting, insightful, and mind-blowing lectures you'll ever hear. I would highly recommend creating a concentration for yourself in either Cognitive, or Industrial/Organizational Psychology. These are high-paying fields that can lead to some amazing career options. I'm planning on attending graduate school and studying software engineering. I'm especially interested in artificial intelligence. My concentration in Cognitive Psychology should really help."

"Choosing a college to attend is a major life decision. The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, was an excellent choice for a number of reasons. First, the campus environment is vibrant and welcoming. The services provided help students find ways to live rich and rewarding lives. For example, the campus fitness center offers a fantastic place to exercise, an aquatics center for recreation and athletic training, and indoor climbing walls for those outdoor enthusiasts looking for a place to improve their skills. As a student, it is possible to rent out equipment like bicycles, sleeping bags, and backpacking tents to take on weekend trips to one of the many beautiful mountains and rivers near the university. Secondly, the academic community there is highly supportive and dedicated. There are many opportunities available for students seeking to get the most out of their education. I applied to join the Honors Society as an associate scholar, and the career counseling and academic advisement I received in doing so prepared me greatly to master my curriculum. I also found an opportunity to work for the university as a tutor/college counselor to local high school students seeking admissions into college following graduation. The things I learned from that experience have carried over to help me with other pursuits and positions of employment throughout my life. Since I graduated in 2007, the campus has undergone several notable improvements. A brand new library has been opened at heart of the university. An all new college stadium has been built and a new football program created. Renovations to the old dormitories have revitalized the living situation, along with new dorms going up across the street. Students living on campus can easily walk or ride a bike downtown to study at the coffee shops, city parks, or on the benches of the pedestrian bridge spanning the Tennessee River. Local art museums, unbeatable aquariums, and scenic Appalachian vistas like Lookout Mountain top off my list of the many reasons why The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga is a fantastic choice for college seekers!"

"Overall, I consider The University of Tennessee to be a great school. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. Student advisers were, for the most part, very helpful. Going to instructors' office hours really helped me get to know my instructors and get one on one help. I wish I would have attended more office hours than I did from the start. The professors I had in the Kinesiology program were extremely helpful and very available as a great resource."

"My major was entrepreneurship. I thought they provided me with excellent skills in all fields of business which is truly what entrepreneurship is. My only criticism would be career services and having direct links to companies who possibly recruit from our school. I had friend who went to less ranked schools and wasn't AACSB accredited and had more success with recruitment from businesses. I know things have changed since. The school has study abroadv choices and making more connections with the businesses in the community."
