I visit mainly for athletic events these days. Much has changed since I graduated. The University continues to change daily. It is dynamic.

With 1 daughter in college now and another about to start, I've been on many different college tours and without a doubt, this was the very best one! They are well organized, providing an initial overview before getting on a bus with two guides. The bus drives around the college while the guides point out different areas of interest. We... More

Great place to visit! Affordable luxury! People go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. UT has a great community and spirit! The grounds are very well kept, close to the center of Knoxville which offers restaurants and other forms of entertainment.

So many options for food. I visited the infamous Advent House it was great to see what the students call "Religious Row". There is where students from various faiths can have a place to go our call home for the college stay.

The University of Tennessee offers many options for nearly any field of study. The campus is beautiful, with lots of history. The school has some good options for on campus housing. They are currently undergoing a major rebuilding of some of the older dorms. I earned my degree here, and I really enjoyed my time at UT. My daughter currently... More

They offer so many options.. Great atmosphere .. Would be a great 4 year.. It is a large school but seems like you can make it as small as you desire with all the special interests. Definatly on the short list for continued education for our son!! Go take a tour you will be impressed
