    In my opinon, you really do get what you pay for. UTC is a midsized campus, with plenty of options of majors to learn from as well as activities to keep you entertained each year you attend.

    There is no bang for the buck. Most buildings are old and falling down. Parking is awful. They sell about 30,000 parking passes for about 10,000 parking spots. The ratio is that bad. They do not really care about their students. They're only in it for your money.

    Its not too expensive, but its also not as cheap as a community college may be. It is defiantly worth the money thats paid though.

    I would definitely say UTC is more than worth the money! It is a great school where most of the teachers honestly care about their students. You cannot find that at every school!
