The University of Tennessee - Knoxville Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (25)
The University of Tennessee is an outstanding school. I completed my undergraduate degree there and returned a few years later at the graduate level. In my undergrad career, I experienced incredibly dedicated and helpful professors. The University's commitments to diversity and social justice, the environment, mental health and safety, and outstanding education are evident. In addition to being an outstanding institution, campus has a great location, and Knoxville is a wonderful place to be.
Honestly, UT is a great school overall. There're plenty of activities that the university hosts weekly, besides you're literally a five minute walk from the bars/restaurants around campus. The only thing that is horrible about UT has to be the parking. Most of the time there's no parking, and when you find a spot, your class is going to be a 20 min walk from you, so you better walk up early. Though, if you live near campus, you could just walk to class.
The University of Tennessee was a great choice for me to take my collegiate career. The various challenges I faced over previous four years groomed both my character and my strength my confidence within myself to know that I can accomplished anything I put the effort towards. Specially the Haslam College of Business was extremely helpful with their students, by providing resources, job fairs, internships, free goods, and advising for when ever I faced a problem. I experimented with three different degrees while at UT but I found my home within the college of business.
The University of Tennessee provided me with an exceptional education. I had many professors that were willing to go above and beyond in order to provide additional insight or review of the material. Not only did I feel that the faculty was highly accessible when I needed additional help with school work, but that they were also invested in my future success. They would provide career advice and graduate school advice whenever I asked. I believe my time at the University of Tennessee has sufficiently prepared me for my next step in life, which is attending law school.
The University of Tennessee (UT) is filled with tradition and excellence. Through the Sports Management program, I was able to network with various professionals within collegiate athletics. If you aspire to work in the world of collegiate athletics, UT is the school for you. Although the classes may not be rigorous, you will learn more than you ever expected with professors who have prior experience in the industry. The program is geared around your experience and how you can succeed based on what you have learned through your internships. If you apply the practice to your passion, you will be able to succeed and create a happy future for yourself through the Sports Management program.
The University of Tennessee is an excellent school to receive your under grad degree in animal science. I feel that I was provided an opportunity to establish a foundation to set the ground work to continue on to become a Veterinarian. Beginning this fall I have been approved to attend the University of Tennessee College of Veterinarian Medicine.
A great experience school wise and personally. I wouldn't change one thing about my collegiate experience at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. It was my first time being away from home and I glad I did go far away from home. It allowed me to network with so many different people from many different backgrounds.
The University of Tennessee provided me with place to grow as a person. I enrolled in a Bachelor program that focused on Forestry and Wildland Recreation. I had aspirations of becoming a Environmental Educator in the National Parks system. The courses were decent and varied in the information they presented. The Ag Campus, as it was affectionately called, felt like a second home to me with the landscaping and close proximity of the buildings. I have many good memories of being a student there. The class sizes were small, ranging from 6 to 25 students and were appropriately matched with the number of TAs and teachers. Some of the teachers in the college had small on-going projects in which students could work and receive pay. I participated in one for four years that assisted the Forest Service. My four years at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville bring to mind fond and happy memories that I hope others will find should they attend.
The University of Tennessee provides you with a solid education. Insightful courses, caring staff and welcoming campus - It is one of the better state schools in Tennessee. And Knoxville is a wonderfully sized city that gives you a big city feel in a small city setting.
The University of Tennessee was a good institution to start to my biological sciences education. It laid a fairly solid foundation so that I could pursue medical school, which I am fortunate to be in presently. However, because the Arts and Sciences advising system is weak, I had to be independent and take control of my future by choosing my courses based on what I thought would satisfy my major requirements while still being intellectually stimulating. I did not choose perfectly and made a few missteps along the way, but I ultimately was successful and completed my BCMB degree with double minors in 4 years while still taking interesting courses such as scuba diving, photography, and philosophy. As for the facilities, there are several new buildings being build on campus including additional biological labs and chemistry labs. Unfortunately, tuition is increasing as a result, but hopefully it will pay dividends. Currently, the chemistry labs are outdated, but the biology labs are great. Generally, the teachers and passionate and desire to help you. There are plenty of opportunities for research with professors as well. Overall, the atmosphere of UT is great. There are plenty of great athletic facilities such as the TRECs and Sutherland Fields for intramurals and a plethora of ways to get involved including Ignite Teams, Honors Programs, athletics, Vol Night Long, Volapalooza concerts, and more. The students are passionate about sports and about making a difference, and I am glad I chose it as my undergraduate institution.
