What Students Are Saying

2.74 Average Rating
If you want to save money, and stay close to home for a while, I suggest you attend here. Why spend $25,000+ when you can spend $800?
Shannon from Maryville, TN
I know it sounds corny but Pellissippi truly deserves all five stars. It would be a great idea to come here.
Nicolas from Knoxville, TN
Check out the online classes. For those of us who find it difficult to be somewhere at a specific time, online learning can't be beat!
Gregory from Oak Ridge, TN
Be on time and speak up when prompted - it makes you look good and it helps you learn better. You will be tempted many times to skip class. DON'T. You will regret it 90% of the time and it will come back to bite you. There have been a few classes where I would have gotten an entire letter grade higher if I hadn't skipped. There are times when you have to miss class for whatever reason and that's fine, but be there whenever you can. Also, take advantage of the resources at your disposal. The writing center and math lab are both particularly helpful. These are free, and so is tutoring, which is offered in most of the core subjects. The library is a great (quiet) place to study and has references for all kinds of topics. Another thing I would recommend is shopping around by taking a variety of different classes. This is especially helpful if you, like me, are not sure exactly what you want to major in - by trying out classes in all the different areas you're interested in, you can narrow down your options. So don't be afraid to take classes just for fun because you may end up finding your passion. Also, make use of the advisors! They can be invaluable in helping you pick out your classes. Lastly, I would recommend checking out Rate My Professor before picking a class. If you know who the professor is going to be, look them up and make sure they have decent ratings.

Be cautious when registering for an on-line class. Teachers are helpful but the responsibility is ALL yours.
Don't always trust the advisors when going easy on your first year of college. It won't help in the long run (summer classes...)
Grayson from Knoxville, TN
Most instructors are very willing to assist you along the path, but students must demonstrate a willingness to learn and be accountable to their own education. Students must attend all classes, pay attention, and participate fully to successfully master the material.
Kathleen from Maryville, TN
Study early on in the semester. Browse the master syllabi for information about your course. Go to the tutoring center.
Joy from Maryville, TN
Apply and attend Pellissippi! You will not regret it!
Wayne from Powell, TN
See an advisor!! They are very helpful and truly do want to help you! As far as classes, know that your teacher desire to see you succeed and are helpful, but you must put forth and effort and try your best.
