That being said, I cannot wait to get out of here and get on with my life. I feel like all my (high) tuition goes towards making the (not so great) football team look good, while the campus is ugly, the student amenities are awful, and necessary resources are limited. The dorms are small and dirty, but still expensive. I went from receiving 3 different scholarships to one (provided by the state, not the school) and they still charge students for silly things like admissions into some clubs, or there are rumors that meal plans will soon be required for students, whether you're on campus or not.There are very few faculty members who have made me feel like a person, not just a name on a page. Friends are hard to make because you never see the same person twice on this huge (ugly) campus. The surrounding city does have a nice square about 15 minutes away from campus. I'll give it that. But after you get tired of the four boutiques and six restaurants that are there, there's not much (so if boutiques aren't your thing and you can't afford to eat out a lot, sorry). The rest of the city is dirty and industrial and feels sketchy. I could go on and on about my distaste for this school.

The real result is that individual student needs are sometimes left by the wayside. If you aren't ready to declare a major or need to change your major due to realizing you are in the wrong program, they really pressure you to stay on track, regardless of what you or your family want. I was actively lied to by an advisor about requirements, transfer possibilities, job opportunities in the new field that interested me and finally threatened that dropping a class could result in being ejected from my dormitory. I later found this would not have been so. I have since transferred so that I can pursue my degree in what I hope is four years, but might be five. I'm o.k. with that and I don't need my university deciding otherwise. I never wanted to attend any other university. Many members of my family graduated from UT. I didn't make this decision lightly. I hope they begin to see how they are treating their students for the sake of this ranking. It doesn't seem worthwhile.

The atmosphere was surprisingly very open minded and conducive to creative thinking. Students are extremely friendly, as are faculty members. The athletic facilities, social experience, and gorgeous Southern belles are the best parts about the school. The worst things were the campus food and the red tape bureaucracy of the administrative departments. Fri, 18 Apr 2014 01:16:37 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/TN/UTK_comments.html
