What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?


There are so many students at UTK, I don't think there really is a stereotype. We have everything!


The stereotypes are essentially that the student body is filled with extremely Christian, dumb rednecks who drink every night and go start fights at the football games. While there are people like that, a large portion of the student body is driven to do well in school and don't necessarily go out every night of the week. Because it is such a large school, there are many varying types of people, ranging from African immigrants to European exchange students to your typical country boy.
