The availability of several eating facilities and local convenient stores is definitly two of the best things on my campus. As an athlete, I have a full day of activities from class to practice to tutoring and the size of the campus is very large. Locating food near every building allows me to eat at proper times and it eliminates the extra time needed to travel to just one facility.

Everyone comes together no matter of race, sex, or status.

There is a little something for everyone here, whether it be the Outdoor Program, Intramural Sports, Fraternities and Sororities, or Volunteering. Each person has a place here, and new clubs and groups are created all the time. There are also many different majors that interest a variety of people. So many talented people in one school create a wonderfully diverse and unique environment.

The University of Tennessee's best feature is its devotion to serving others. The very mascot of this selfless institution is the Volunteer, a tribute to Davy Crockett's bold service to the struggle at The Alamo. Consequently, UT faculty and staff strongly encourage leadership and service not only to the local and national community but also to the world itself. For instance, I spent my first year in a leadership community, living and studying alongside students who share a vision of hope and help for the dissadvantaged and hopeless.

That I'm the only one who can keep myself going.

Agnieszka

The fact that you can make this school what you want it to be. This taught me how to set my priorities. I no longer need my mother hanging over my shoulder, telling me to do my homework. It is a tough thing to learn, but I feel that it is very important. I also think that the proffessors here truely care about their undergraduate students, particularly in the psychology department. They really go out of their way to make themselves available, sometimes staying as late as 9 pm just so you can meet about something you're curious about.

Michael

The way the Univeristy of Tennessee prepares its students for the business world is unparalleled. Once you've completed your general education and begin pursuing your major, it's amazing how much the classes feel like a workplace. They do a great job of making the student feel like they are competing for a job title when they are really just earning a grade.

Katherine

There are many oppurtunities for students here because of the environment around us. UT is located in the busy city of Knoxville (which is great for job opportunities), but the rural farm areas and beautiful Appalachian mountains are just a short drive away. Ut is also extremely diverse pertaining to the student body. I think this is great because being around such a diverse community made me learn about other people's culture and I grew to understand and respect their views.
