WHAT I LIKED

My experience here so far has been so good! The professors are almost all super nice and helpful, they really want us to excel here. There are so many libraries and resources for students too!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think that prospective students should know parking at UT is absolutely atrocious. They should also be prepared for how big the campus is and where classes and resources are. The last thing to prepare for is how many cool people you’re gonna meet and how exciting it is to be in college.

WHAT I LIKED

Honestly, it was not one of my top choices to attend, and I think a lot if I made the wrong choice. It is such a huge school that it is hard to find your group, especially if you aren't in Greek life. Education-wise, I find myself bored most days, the work isn't very challenging for me, that is yet. The workload comes in waves, some weeks are busy, and others are very light.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't really like the PCB area, there are simply not enough green areas, and that really affects me. The nicer dorms don't mean social dorms, I don't really know my neighbors. If you aren't in Greek life, it is very hard to find your group. It is still very high school-ish, very clicky.

WHAT I LIKED

I like the city of Knoxville the most, everyone here is just so nice. There is a cute farmers market on Saturday too. This doesn't feel like a rowdy college town all the time and I appreciate that.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the basic classes you have to take are really bad. Once you get into classes specific to you're degree they are a lot better but the beginner ones are bad.
