What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
For most of you who may want to come to UTM, I recommend that you be prepared for the freedom that may come with going out on your own. You must be prepared to go to class every time because attendance is crucial as well as making time to study; save your money at every available opportunity, having fun with friends doesn't need to be expensive
Dexter from Millington, TN
You should definitely come to one of the preview days that UTM holds. These give you a chance to meet many of the administration and professors in your desired major (more than likely, one of these will be your advisor), tour the beautiful campus, and check out the housing opportunities first hand. Also, don't be afraid to talk to the people in admissions and financial aid more than once; it could pay off. My first semester here, I received an extra $1500 that allowed me to take summer classes as well.
Megan from Rives, TN
The best thing to do is go to SOAR when it is offered during the spring and summer. When you are there, pay attention. I know that these sessions can be boring, but they are so informative. And, it is also exciting seeing all the new faces that you will be living near. While at SOAR, do not be afraid to ask questions. If you ask, there is someone else there who has the same question but is scared to ask. Also, I suggest talking to the admissions counselors and financial aid office. You never know where some hidden money might appear to help you pay for school. The SOAR staff is also helpful, and they are students, too. So, they tend to be easier to relate to.
Adrian from Henning, TN
If you are not a student who enjoys a party, don't consider this school. Martin is a very small town with only a small movie theatre and a couple of restaurants. Most students attend frat parties on the weekend.

Also, if you live more than three hours away and expect to commute once or twice a month, consider the extra costs. There's the gas to get two and from there, the money to get home and back, and also the time spent driving. I live six hours away from Martin so I only went home once a month. It also cost me about $40 just to go home and see my family. It was hard to find the time to go and I sometimes skipped class on Friday just to go home. However, if you're not thinking about going home while you're at school, then don't worry about it.

I really enjoyed UT Martin, but the commute was just too much for me to handle.

Apply for all the scholarships there are, all the aid you get will carry you through your four years. UTM has scholarships for everyone.

Don't get into the party rut. Martin offers numerous other activities to do on campus during school hours...and AFTER. It's a great school if you just use it to ur advantage.
Mary from Drummonds, TN
When you're registering for classes, ratemyprofessor.com is your best friend! Balance out your schedule. Work on scholarships, study, apply yourself, and have fun.
Rebecca
Don't be afraid of the teachers. Most are really friendly and are really dedicated to helping you succeed. You aren't just a number; you are know by your first name.
Jarmeisha from Memphis, TN
Get to know your professors and peers; they will help you in your future endeavors. Get involved! Go to class! Have fun!
