WHAT I LIKED

The best option you have in Tennessee, but that doesn't make it good. Go to a community college for the first 2 years or you'll waste your money.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The university truly does not care about you and will find any possible way of squeezing money out of you and making your life harder.

WHAT I LIKED

While the professors are a hit-or-miss kind of situation, I do enjoy the social and academic activities the school, as well as the generous groups, offer. The school helps you feel encouraged to continue your work, no matter how tired you may be.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Many professors are wonderful people, however, there are certain professors that one should be wary of. Some are too old and stubbornly strict with their personal roots. There have also been incidents with some newly employed young professors/TA's that have made concerning actions that students like me worry about.
