As Tennessee's flagship land-grant and premier research university, we’re here to provide a quality education and to prepare you for what comes next. As Andy, one of our recent alumni will tell you, the opportunities UT provided are one of the reasons he’s doing what he does today, documenting festivals like Bonnaroo and living in and giving back to Knoxville, where he was recently voted the best photographer in the city. He also graduated from UT debt free, which is something nearly half of our students do.
“The way that UT has made itself affordable, especially to the community, especially to Tennesseans but even out of state, it was definitely one of the best educations I could get for how affordable it was.”
“People underestimate the connections you make in college. I wouldn’t be here at all if it wasn’t for the friends I met in class or the professors I met.”
