The University of Tennessee-Martin is an exceptional place geographically, academically, and community based. Geographically, this campus is located in Northwest Tennessee, in a rural, agriculture based community. Academically, Martin has multiple opportunities for study abroad trips and hands on learning opportunities! The professors are very approachable and want students to succeed. Being located in a small town, Martin is very community based. There are multiple opportunities to get involved in and to help support the community. If you cannot find something here to be apart of, then you must not be looking!

I used to live on campus and I enjoyed my stay there. The housing was decent, the staff was polite, the campus was clean and safe. Now, I attend a satellite campus and my time here is just as enjoyable. The instructors are always available to help, the campus is clean as well and my schooling here helps me with my achievements. Any recommendation I have for students interested in this school is to focus on your aspirations and let the University of Tennessee-Martin help you with the rest.

Caitlin

It is a great place to feel safe and focus on learning. The class sizes are wonderful when getting to know your peers and professors. At night, the campus is a little scary and could use a tiny bit more light. But, other than that, I believe that UT Martin's campus is exceptional.

keiyonna

I love the college. The things I love most about the college is that it is close to home. Whenever I need something or if a family member cooks, I can just drive home and get whatever I need. Or if I just want to visit. I love that the campus is small and everything is close by. Also the town is town so it reminds me a lot of home

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

    Amanda, you stress a lot - way too much. Yes, it is important to do well, and to succeed academically, but it is even more important to remember that life is a journey - not merely a series of destinations. Continue to push yourself and to strive for excellence; you will go far and achieve everything that you had dreamed, but, at the same time, don't forget what this journey is all about. You will meet some of the most amazing people on the planet during your time at UTM, and you will be blessed with so many incredible opportunities. Cherish them all, because, at the end of the day, it's not the "A" on the Biochemistry test that you will remember with such fondness; it's the moments of laughter or even tears with the people that you care about and those that care about you. Maintain that drive to succeed - you will go far, but as you race down the superspeedway that we call life, don't simply let the miles fly by. Take the time to enjoy the scenery and to appreciate your traveling companions along the way. Life is a journey - enjoy the ride.

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

    The worst thing about my campus is the gingko trees!!! They accidentally planted the FEMALE trees by the sidewalks instead of the males. The gingkos are rare and beautiful trees but the females produce berries that give off an awful- lasting smell when you step on them... and there are PLENTY of berries!!!! It's no fun to walk around all day with the stench attached to your shoe!!! :P

  7. What kind of person should attend this school?

    Someone who enjoys a small school environment should come here. You must be focused on your work, as the academics can be strenuous. You must appreciate teachers who are invested in their students on a deep level. The classes are small, and the atmosphere casual and personal. You should be able to function without a lot of retail or big-city attractions. It is great for people who enjoy campus housing that is styled after apartments instead of dorms to allow for more indepent living.

  8. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    A person who would not enjoy this school is a person who loves big cities. UT Martin is based in a small town and is in the middle of nowhere. Granted, there are local places such as franchises such as Wal-Mart and Subway, however there are really no entertainment areas around Martin, unless you travel about an hour elsewhere. I also think that students who are not engaged in learning will not enjoy this school. We have plenty of Greek life, however academics are very important here.

  11. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    My school is known for being a smaller university, but that does not affect the opportunities that are available. To me there seems to be even more opportunities here because the smallness brings people closer together, which leads to friends and even proffesors more willing to provide help when it is needed.

  16. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    I absolutely love it! It wasn't my first choice and I thought it was too close to home, but now I can't see myself anywhere else. It's not a very large school ( only about 9,000 people), but it's just perfect for me. Its Small enough you see people you know on campus, but big enough to always see a new face and make new friends. People react 2 completely different ways when I tell them I go to UTM, either really happy for me or they think its a boring town. The best thing about the nursing program is they do Factuality Advising. Every teacher you have in the program is an advisor so they know you personally and know what nurses need to graduate and how to study. This is the only school in Tennessee who does this, and a big part of why I chose Martin over Chattanooga or Knoxville. Common complaints are that there isn't a lot to do around town.
