The University of Tennessee-Knoxville Top Questions

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


The size of the campus given then amount of time we have to get between classes can be a little difficult. I also wish that the financial aid office was more competent. They always seem to misplace my information until the last minute.


The racial issues, many people both black and white just hate each other becasue that is the way thier parents raised them


I definitely feel like the mentality of a lot of the students here is closed from the southern conservative mindset. I wish that UT would work to try to encourage more independent thinking out of classes.


The homework load is ridiculous in most of the fields of study. Talk to students within the field at the university to get an idea of the work load.


The worst thing about my school is the lack of diversity. If I saw more diverse faces floating around campus, I would feel better about getting to know different kinds of people.


The worst thing I would consider would be the overwhelming amount of sorroities and fraternities. Both groups create a wealthy and kind of stuck up environment around campus.


I would have to say the worst thing about our school is the parking. You buy a parking permit for 255.00 or 150.00 and you are not guaranteed a parking spot. They have plenty of staff parking areas but what about the parking for students that live on and off campus?


budget problems, tuition hikes, poor advising, nickel and dime students over small thinks like parking, finding a parking spot.


The size is too large to experience professors who care and friends for life.


The worst thing about my school are the large class sizes. I believe that smaller class sizes would be more benificial to students, because one could recieve more individual attention, and be able to revieve more help if needed.


That we now have to pay for football tickets.


When you can't get into the certain college that you want because you might have a low gpa at the time but you know you are going to pull it up. Then it takes you like three years before you actually get into your career path, and that is very stressful.


Since U.T. is a large state school the majority of students come from in state. I notice that alot of the quieter out of state students almost feel obligated to join greek orginizations where they often are mistreated or lose thier individual identity.


The worst thing about my school is the size. You get used to it after a while but it can be overwhelming. Also, I feel as if the university is becoming like a corporation and the well being of students is no longer a priority.


The size is way too big, it extends across town and it is hard to find certain classrooms. It can be difficult to figure out where to park for classes as well.
