"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 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."

  • Degree: Forestry
  • Graduation Year: 2009
"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."

"The Cinema Studies program is a well-rounded program. The program will definitely developed your abilities to analysis and breakdown film across genres and across country of origin (i.e., French cinema, Italian film, etc.) . Additionally, the program consist of courses such as screenwriting and production courses. While some programs tend to focus on the technical aspects of film, the UTK program takes a wider look at the discipline and develops both critical analysis skills and technical skills."

"The faculty members I encountered were first rate. It was no problem to contact them and normally a reply was almost instantaneous. Course work was the same as for day students. Testing was done under the watch of an approved supervisor. I watched classes live and was able to be in touch with the teacher through the software. For my experience I would recommend the University of Tennessee-Knoxville for online study."

"UT is a great place to be with many opportunities so long as you can advocate for yourself and take advantage of the resources available on campus. I had many great professors, particularly adjunct professors and lecturers, who really invested their energy into educating. But in many cases, I was also disappointed by professors who were primarily concerned with their own research and failed to put work into classes beyond what is minimally required. UT is a big school with the advantages and disadvantages that entails and lately appears to be suffering from hate crimes and poor handling of sexual assault. However, it is also filled with many amazing students who are advocating for each other and changing campus for the better, and the wonderful people I met on campus make me genuinely proud of my generation. My experience at UT shaped who I am and gave me the knowledge and resume I needed to pursue graduate school at my top choice university. I would pick UT all over again due to the sheer number of possibilities it introduced to my life, but I also feel strongly that the administration at UT owes more to its students regarding safety and inclusion on campus and limited local government influence. UT has everything it needs for greatness, but it's still a work in progress, and I'd advise anyone interested in attending to give UT a chance, but to also come prepared to fight for yourselves and others for your education and your right to be there."
