With a population of over 185,291 Knoxville is the states third largest city after Nashville and Memphis. With not much of a historic background the city was founded in 1791 and is more like a small peaceful town than an actual over-loaded city. The downtown is right next to the university which has few cafes, bars and boutiques which serve delicious food but those 10 cafes and one shopping mall arent the only things you would like to visit continuously for a couple of years. Initially you might find a lot of peace, but the constant construction and industrial sound might just irritate you later. Else, the city is calmer and has not much of a social life to it.
A huge campus of 2138 acres is a lot more space to explore for a year at least. Seriously UTK is one of the biggest university campuses ever established. The buildings are comparatively new but the main university hall still remains intact since 1796. The campus buildings comprise of 576 acres of the total area and a new building is made every once in 5 years. The classes are large and give you a good amount of space to study. The best part about this campus is the main university hall; its old, a bit gothic and beautiful. There are few cafes and boutiques inside the campus but campus canteen generally provides mediocre food.
The University of Tennessee offers students combined housing and dining options. The on-campus cost for a typical student was $9,926 in (2015 2016) inclusive of food and shelter. This housing cost is pretty expensive considering the locality of the university.
Knoxville falls in the humid subtropical climate zone, although it is not quite as hot as areas to the south and west due to the higher elevations. Summers are hot and humid, with the daily average temperature in July at 25.8 °C, and an average of 36 days per year with temperatures reaching 32 °C. Winters are generally cool, with occasional small amounts of snow. January has a daily average temperature of 3.4 °C, although in most years there is at least one day (average 5.3) where the high remains at or below freezing. However, usually no snow occurs outside of January and February. The climate is pokey during winters but summers are humid like Coastal India. It is a difficult climate to get along with but once you get habitual to it then breaking a sweat in summers will feel normal.
Well, if I was a professor then the only way I would agree to teach at UTK would be for an exceptional salary because the university is like a State in itself where you dont have a social life like in a town or city. The place is full of bats and crows that give you a genuine vibe of woods from The Jungle Book. Nevertheless the place is peaceful so there are few professors who chose to settle here throughout their life. Professors are generally good and few of them are everybodys favorite. Professors at the Math department are considered as best in UTK. But, not just math professors even others are helpful, friendly and will help you at any doubt you take forward to them. There are no complaints registered on any faculty as far as teaching is concerned.
Yes, just like any other university UTK provides scholarship, grants and students loan which will help you minus your total fee. The procedure for applying for a scholarship is easy but when you have to fill in all your documents for the paper work that is a load of work. And also if by chance you end up being in a heated argument with any of the administration staff then your scholarship might be at stake. Apart from all these benefits the university also allows student to work part-time within the university which helps them gain an amount which will at least help equalize their food and living cost.
As per the data 37% of the students have acquired their job through University and are satisfied with it. There are few placements that are conducted within the campus but everyone is not lucky enough to find their perfect job in those campus placements. There are few campus parties and gathering which are conducted once in a quarter will help you get in touch with alumni but very few people turn up for those parties. You need to be really adamant and career focused to visit such place and gather all the contacts possible.

Considering the past and notable alumni of this university one can easily start falling in love with UTK but there are other factors to be considered such as why UTK if you have other affordable universities providing same course in a city setting? The marvelous campus isnt going to add up to your career, all it will give you is a bit of silence which will be disturbed eventually if a construction takes place within the campus, which regularly does. The academics and education quality is good but what about the food? No one has complimented the food till now; yes the cafes are good but let me remind you that those are expensive too. The crowd is good but all you will need to do is be same good to them. The only issue being the 48,000 US$ mark of fee, if you are simply going for the degree to States then this university is not worth your time because you can get that same degree at any other university at an affordable price but if youre looking forward for some fun and peace while you study and also you have the amount of funds required then you are welcome to apply by clicking on the website below, just beware of the administration staff; they can be irritating.
