I think the best thing about UTK is that there is so much to do and be involved with. There are all sorts of clubs which is nice because there is something for everyone! Its a very welcoming school that wants it students to be involved. The school is just the right size. Its definitely a big school, but I like the big school atmosphere. There is always something going on and the campus is never dead. There are always people everywhere. There is a ton of school pride. The football team, the Vols and Lady Vols basketball teams, and lots of other athletic groups bring thousands of Tennessee lovers to the school. We are very proud of our athletics and so is the city of Knoxville. Every car has a Tennessee sticker on it somewhere and people are always sporting Tennessee spirit wear. No matter what the outcomes of any games might be, Tennessee is and always will be absolutely obsessed with Tennessee athletics.
I don't believe that anyone would feel out of place at UTK because there is so much to do and it is such a diverse campus. The different clubs and social groups create a very welcoming environment where anyone can find something that fits them perfectly! Everyone dresses pretty differently for class. Some people where sweats and a t shirt and some people decide to take two hours to get ready and show up in something much dressier. There is a good chance that if you're greek, you'll probably be wearing something that shows what sorority of fraternity you're in. A lot of people sport Tennessee spirit wear. Jeans and a t shirt are a very popular choice for class wear. Tennessee has students from everywhere. There is a big list of the different states and even countries that all the students come from in our Student Center. Most of the students are from Tennessee of course, but there are plenty of people from out of state.
The Best Things
