What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You are going to change man. Take Najberg's composition and Evans's sociology classes. Switch that engineering major, you haven't picked that silly schematic stuff up since 9th grade. Ever since you read Orwell's 1984, you realized your fascination with the human condition. Don't be shocked if girls like you and don't blow it with Jessica. You will create friends virtually ex nihilo by tagging along with your roommates. You and Nicole will always be "just friends", so please move on. Avoid girls you aren't interested in, even though you like trying to figure our their problems. Habitual singleness gives you a lot of free time. You think hipsters are cool, but they really aren't. You will realize that partying is indeed fun, so loosen up and grab a few shots of vodka. Agnosticism will be accepted more, but you will seem to have a deeper reason and experience for jumping off the cross. You will not be the smartest, which in time will feel liberating. Don't take freshman seminar, that is for potential dropouts, which you really won't be. Have fun, be yourself, and keep your grades badass.

What's unique about your campus?

The Chattanooga community is integrated into the school. A "college town" is ruled by a bunch of 18-24 year olds that are there to be fed into the college demographic marketing machine. However, in UTC you feel like a part of something, ready to take on the community and the world. You can gain a broader network with the beautiful city. You can gain perspective. Some like urban campuses and some don't. I happen to like it.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Arrogance: Pretentious fucks known as honor students. I was going to be one, but got to busy with other apps that I put the idea away. What they get in amplified courseloads they lose in social skills much more needed to network and exude a good presence among people. Smug alert! Ignorance: First semester party dropouts. They are slight influx of people who, on the other hand, don't go here to learn, and their presence is clouted with immature hormorne controls.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would definitely have been more strict on my finances. College away from home is not a place you want to experience being dead broke. School is not much of a problem, but I would have told myself to read and research random things more just to attain knowledge.

What kind of person should attend this school?

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone that enjoys to party hard and often with communes of people.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

UTC is a not-too-small-not-too-big college with amazing setting in the valley of two mountains in the heart of downtown Chattanooga on the Tennessee river where you can choose whether to be a success or a failure and have fun with whatever road you choose.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

We have a very advanced engineering program. Our education program is one of the best there is. And our football team is in the process of "restoring the glory." We have good basketball teams and last year our men were the Cinderella team at the National Championships. We spent a week as the target of jokes on the Jimmy Fallon Late Night Show.

UTC is more than it seems. I know you want to go big...UGA, UT. I looks too small and kind of boring, but it's just right for you. You will realize after your first psych class with 200 other freshman why you wouldn't have liked a bigger school. You will appretiate your decision when you start your education classes and are taught by teachers you want to be like one day. You will be surrounded by great people chasing the same dream you are who will help you along the way. You will have fun here, too! There are so many people here just like you. There is a great park just across the river, hiking on lookout mountain, and awesome hangouts downtown. There are reasons that things didn't work out at UGA, you just don't know it yet. And even though you thought Belmont would be too far from home, it wasn't right for you either. This is the only school where you could become the special ed teacher you were born to be. You don't know it now, but where you are going and who you will be started at UTC!

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere at my school is the best thing. The people here are really sociable and and are willing to meet new people and make new friends. Also there are many avenues for students to get involved in campus life and make a difference in the college community and the community of Chattanooga as well.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person that should attend this school is a person who is ready to meet many new people and become a part of something larger than themselves. The campus life here is active and a person who is considerinng this school should be prepared to come in contact with people who are physically active. Whether people are playing sports or just horsing around on the the volleyball court or new recreation center, fun can be found anywhere.

Dont let money hender you from going where you dream of being. If it is a school in Germany you feel is best for you...then GO!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That taking hours to ensure you move to the next grade level is not always best.

Brittley
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice I would give is to visit your choie colleges before you decide on what college you want to go to and when you go off to college make sure it is the school you, as a student, want to go to.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

There is not a person that should not come here. Anyone can come here in my opinion.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell the student to choose wisely. I would say that not everyone knows exactly what they want when they enter college, so I would want them to choose a college with a great diversity in programs. While all aspects of a college environment are important, I think the most important would be the college itself. I would tell them not to pick a college that focuses on one concentration like a conservatory of art or music, unless they were absolutely sure it is what they wanted. By choosing a college that offers several different things, there will be a smaller chance of them getting stuck, that is to say, wishing they would have gone somewhere that offered what they wanted. For the parents I'd want them to know that college is their child's decision, and they shouldn't push them to attend somewhere they do not want to go, because Ive seen that happen, and more than likely their child will not finish at that school, but be unhappy because they did not get to chose for themselves. I'd also like to tell the students not to get caught up in party life. Not good.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type pf person that should atted this school is someone who likes to be around friendly people. Also this person would need to be a person who actually wants to learn but also knows how to have fun while learning. This person would also need to be the type of person that would take advantage of all the campus has to offer, because this campus offers tons of services, and it would be crazy for no one to take them up on it, free services as a matter of fact.
