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

Best advice would be be sure that you are ready to be away from home, you can still attend school within the city and stay on campus, that way you'll still be out of your parents house, if going out of town parents let your child go without there car at least for the first year or semester. You make friends faster, learn the city better and stay out of trouble without a car. More then likely your roommates will become those long life friends make the most of that, they become your family away from home, they can help in every area staying on campus is the best way experience college. Last but not least develop long lasting, true relationship with your professors and their assistants, don't wait til the end of the semester when you need help to go to your professors. Enjoy because those four years will go by and then your in trouble because the good ole fun days are out the window, Real World here you come.

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

spend a few days on the campus and in the town of which you are planning on going. getting a feel for the environment will help you to figure out if the school is a place that you will want to live. All schools are different and you need to figure out which one you enjoy the most.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

that everyone goes home on the weekends and not much happends in the city

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

I believe it is very important to look at atleast 5 different college programs and campus before deciding. This is a very important step and it is best spent and will be satisfying and fun only if you like and enjoy your surroundings. Also, if possible, attend a college with a friend that you know you can be yourself with. During college years many different people will come around, but best friends are there to stay. It is also good to have someone with you at all times (like a "buddy" system) just to be safe both on and off campus. While visiting different colleges, be sure to ask a lot of questions about activities that you are interested in. Get involved, stay involved, and meet as many people as you can! : ) And most of all, have fun!

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

Find a school that fits you. Don't go somewhere just because that's where your friends are going or for any other reason that that's the school you want to attend. Make sure they offer the major of your choice because not every school offers the same specialties and even if they do offer it make sure that it is highly regarded nationally and not the bottom of the barrel.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the athletic teams, are rarely, if ever, competitive with other schools

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

visit, because you can't really get the feel of the campus without being there. Get involved in activities and actively seek out what interests you. It is very difficult to meet people and make friends if you are sitting alone in your room.

What's unique about your campus?

The people. Everyone is friendly

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Cardiac Hill! It is in the middle of campus and makes getting to class on time exhausting!

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

making sure you understand what you are going to college for. many times students pick school just because they want to follow their friends, but you have to realize that every college is not for you. i would advise doing research and being truely honest with ones self when decided on which college to attend. because once you realize that then it will make your college experience a lot easier!

What's unique about your campus?

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Chattanooga is a wonderful place to go to school. It is a small city with a big city feel. Surrounded by mountains, we are only a short distance from Knoxville, Atlanta, and Nashville. UTC is well balanced. With an emphasis on art, environment, and music, there's something for everyone. Although smaller than the other colleges I applied to, I do not feel deprived of anything at UTC. The professors are friendly, genuine, knowledgable, and accomplished. Students range in ages from 18-50 and I've found a friend in every class. It's great to be a Chattanooga Moc!

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

Make sure you and your parents feel safe at school. Worrying about safety as a student makes it hard to focus on schoolwork and comforting concerned parents can be stressful too. One easy way to do this is by talking to other students, visiting the college campus and driving around the city, and going to orientation. Don't let crime dampen the excitement of going to school. Also, be aware of timelines and dates for forms like FAFSA and other aid opportunities; the early bird gets the worm! My last piece of advice is to research extracurricular activities. Although some students will have to juggle both work and school, clubs are a great social outlet. Environmental, drama, foreign language, or special interest clubs are a few found at UTC. Not only do they help connect you to your peers, they are a great way to network and "beef up" your post -graduation resume!

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

The best advice for finding the right college is to do research. Look online at colleges that you are interested in and visit the campus, because what is on the website is not always the whole truth about the college.

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

I wish i had known that the availability of financial aid was not as easy to acquire and keep as i thought it was.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is the parking availability. There is not enough available parking for the students that drive to campus. It is also frustrating that the financial aid office does not seem to be available to answer questions about aid in a timely manner.
