Because I grew up in a small town, I really like the small town feel of UT Martin. The campus offers a lot of extracurricular activities for all students to participate in. Every week there are different sporting events such as football, basketball, and baseball that you can attend. If you want to play on a sports team without being on the school varsity teams, there are also inter murals for all sports, from football to rugby, where teams made up of students play each other. UTM has an annual rodeo as well. There are fraternities and sororities who also have competitions where they do certain skits and routines which is really entertaining. You can also participate in rush week where you meet a lot of new people and have the opportunity to be in one of the sororities or fraternities. There is a recreation center on campus that has all the fitness equipment imaginable, a basketball court, yoga rooms, a track, biking rooms, pool tables and racket ball courts. There are also volley ball courts laid out in several locations around the on campus dorms and apartments. The campus is made up of different buildings that are dedicated to certain subjects. These buildings are laid out in a circle with connecting side walks in between so it is easy to navigate to whatever building your classes are in. The center of the campus circle is full of different types of trees so it is especially beautiful during the fall when all the leaves are changing colors. There is a cafeteria which requires a paid for meal plan and a food court and convenient store. The food court includes a chick-fil-a and a sandwich shop called sandella's. In the library, there is also a coffee shop called Seattle's best. There are plenty of things on campus that can interest many different types of people.Read More
