What Students Are Saying

3.89 Average Rating
Take a tour of the college and definitely attend the open house days. Talk to some of the students and professors and make sure you feel like UT is the college for you. If you're going to apply make sure you also apply for their scholarships and grants. That will help you a lot and you will probably receive at least one. If you need any help or have any questions don't be afraid to talk to a counselor or advisor. They are more than happy to help you anytime and are quick to respond.
Sarah from Tampa, FL
1)don't be afraid to check out the many clubs ut has to offer. there is an organization fair held at the beginning of each semester which allows you to talk to members firsthand.
2)take advantage of the saunder's writing center, or other academic aid programs. they are all free to use, and are easy to set up appointments with!
3)student productions, team chaos, the residence association, and other groups are constantly throwing fun events. take advantage of them. they are free, fun and a great way to meet new people.
Rachael from Belgium
Don't ever wait until the last minute with anything. If something needs to get done, like financial aid or a hold on your account. Just get it done as soon as you can. If not, you'll be stuck waiting in line for hours with the other students who procrastinated.
Caitlin from Clearwater, FL
Apply here early. Tour the campus, get the full picture. You will love what you see.
MICHAEL from Spring Hill, FL
Try to get involved in the student community. Take full advantage of all the help and office hours the staff has.
Sarah from Wethersfield, CT
If you're looking for a school in an urban environment with great weather, friendly people, a variety of clubs and groups, a variety of classes, and professors who enjoy teaching then this is the school for you!
Romelo from Brooklyn, NY
If you have frizzy hair and are not from a humid place bring something to tame the frizz. The school is really beautiful and the people here are really nice. Look into everything at the school and don't just pick it because it has a nice campus and a pool. Make sure it has your major and that it has a good program for you major. There are a lot of sports med and management students here and those are really good programs.
