I only made a visit here, I am hoping to transfer to this university from another university in California. UT Knoxville is a huge campus, and there are rooms for everyone. You won’t see a more beautiful campus in Tennessee! UT Knoxville is located right next to the Tennessee River, so for those who love tubing, u don’t need to go very far. It is definitely the most gorgeous university I’ve seen so far. For those who love the countryside, you only need to drive like 10 minutes away from the university, you can end up in the countryside easily!
The staff here couldn’t give a care in the world if you learn or graduate. And they don’t teach you anything about getting a job in your field. Most of the curriculum is irrelevant. Plus, the programs are so convoluted with co requisites and prerequisites that you get screwed over when classes aren’t available (known as the “Big Orange Screw”). And they add an absurd amount of writing-intensive “Perspectives” classes in foreign studies and additional US studies classes and world history, so you really hardly take any classes related to your major. They want to be a Top 25 research institution but alienate the students who are TN students just trying to get an affordable degree with their HOPE scholarships. So many other universities have simplistic general education pathways and then you can dive into your major, but not UT. My advice, don’t waste your time.
The location is really nice and the tailgates are always fun on game day. The worst thing I can think of is the parking can be awful sometimes. They over sell the parking passes so you have to get to class early if you want to find a space. I found it difficult sometime later to find a place to park close to my house during the day since so many commuter students park on the street instead of the parking garages. Otherwise it's alot of fun,there's plenty of places to eat on campus and it's about a 10-15 minute walk to downtown/Old City or 5 or so minutes to the strip for more fast food type things.
Beaaautiful campus, great location...don’t be alarmed of the homeless population.it will slap you in the face one you go down Cumberland and turn on 16th. There are a ton of places to live around here. The campus is very diverse yet still a little separated. They have a lot of things to do and things to experience. The staff are helpful and the grounds are clean, I lived in Knoxville for 6 months and I pretended to be a student lol (I was suppose to enroll in the fall but I decided to transfer) it was an all art f great experience. Knoxville will always be a place for me to go
Despite the fact that I completed my Ph.D. with a perfect 4.00 GPA, my dissertation advisor Mark Littmann attempted to sabotage my attempts to find a tenure-track university faculty position. Fortunately, I was offered and accepted such a position without his "help." I don't know what motivates Mark Littmann other than his enormous ego and (behind his façade of politeness) his well-concealed detest of other people (particularly women). If you are one of the "subjects" of Mark Littmann (aka "His Highness"), keep in mind that his standards are extremely exacting and that he will show no mercy for you if you exhibit any of the normal human failings that all of us may find ourselves prey (with the exception of "His Highness" Mark Littmann himself, of course). P.S. Chasing total solar eclipses around the world is a wealthy man's game, one that Mark Littmann has been playing for years without so much as acknowledging that the vast majority of people do not have the means to see a total solar eclipse unless one happens to occur in their own backyard. And in fact, the path of the 2017 total solar eclipse on August 21 does indeed include parts of East Tennessee close to Knoxville, but Mark Littmann is traveling to see it in Douglas, Wyoming, because the weather conditions in East Tennessee aren't quite perfect enough for him. It might be cloudy here (though it might also be cloudy in Douglas, Wyoming), thus preventing "His Highness" Mark Littmann from the perfect view of the total solar eclipse that his unlimited budget allows him. UPDATE: The weather conditions for viewing the eclipse in Sweetwater, Tennessee, were absolutely ideal, accompanied by the wonderfully fun festival hosted by Sweetwater (and virtually in my own backyard, costing me almost nothing compared with a trip to Wyoming, where the cost of lodging was sky high, and airfare to get there was grossly inflated). And though the eclipse was an amazing sight, one is enough for me. I did not ask, "When is the next one?" as Mark Littmann claims people do after having seen one. Nor do I care to chase around the world to see another. Doing so is my definition of an obsession that defies explanation. But that makes sense because Mark Littmann himself defies explanation as well.
