Questions & Answers

Who are the notable alumni?
1 Answer
  • Peyton Manning, former star quarterback of the Denver Broncos, graduated from UT in 1998. Other alumni who have topped the world of professional sports include Olympic Gold Medalist Kara Lawson, retired WMBA Player Chamique Holdsclaw, NBC Announcer Lindsey Nelson, and WMBA Rookie of the Year and MVP Candace Parker. But UT graduates aren’t only known for their sports victories. They have also founded and managed well-known companies. Just think of Garmin Co-Founder Min Kao, Build-A-Bear CEO Sharon Price John, Regal Entertainment CEO Amy Miles, and Nestle USA Inc. Retired Chairman and CEO Joe Weller. Also, you might have heard Ann Tanner Taylor reporting on National Public Radio, or Deana Kay Carter crooning hit singles on the local country music station. Distinguished UT alumni work in just about every industry.

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • Campus is located just one mile from eclectic downtown Knoxville. It’s a lively city that hosts countless farmer’s markets, festivals, and free concerts. UT also sits along the Tennessee River. You might even spot some serious UT sports fans “sailgating” before football games! No UT student experience would be complete without attending a football game in the 100,00-seat Neyland Stadium. Throughout campus, winding walkways and a quaint pedestrian bridge connect the collegiate Gothic-inspired brick buildings, like iconic Ayres Hall. As one of the nation’s oldest public universities UT is an institution with a rich history. But fast-forward to the present and you’ll see that it makes an effort to stay modern. For example, the new Student Union will feature new dining options, shops, event venues, and hangout spots. You can also look forward to new classroom buildings and revamped residence halls to be completed by 2020. It’s an exciting time to join the UT community.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • If you want the UT experience as an undergraduate, you’ll most likely have to study on-campus—unless you’re looking to get your bachelor’s degree in nursing through their RN to BSN completion program. However, UT offers several online graduate programs and certificates. You can get a graduate degree in areas like information science, agricultural leadership, or social work. Future engineers can earn their master’s degree in civil, industrial, environmental, or reliability and maintainability engineering. If you’re pursuing a social sciences or education career, then earn your credentials in rehabilitation counseling, educational psychology, educational administration, social work, or teacher education. Or, if you just want to pick up a new skill or hobby, explore UT’s affordable non-credit personal development courses. You could learn landscape design, stand-up paddleboard yoga, or bluegrass banjo playing. Your future just got a whole lot more interesting.

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the athletic highlights?
1 Answer
  • The UT Volunteers, or Vols, have a total of 23 national championships under their belts. The women’s basketball team holds eight of those wins. Following up right behind them is the football team with six wins. As a future Vol you’d get to play in new and updated venues like the Thomson-Boling Arena, the second largest on-campus basketball arena in the nation. Outside of the arena UT student-athletes spend their time living up to the Volunteers namesake. In 2015 the Vols fundraised for the American Cancer Society by hosting a No-Shave November competition. Be sure to check out their hilarious bewhiskered class photos at Volsnoshave.com. This is an athletic community with serious ability, service spirit, and sense of humor to match. If that doesn’t make you want to be a Vol, then we’re not sure what will!

    Answered by: Universities.com
What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • UT has nine undergraduate colleges and eleven graduate colleges which together boast over 300 program options. Want to earn your bachelor’s and master’s in just five-years in animal science, electrical engineering, or political science? You can! As a student you can access unique research opportunities thanks to the university’s collaborations with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). It’s the largest multi-program science and energy research lab in the country. You could gain practical experience as an intern in engineering, science writing, software development and more. Of course your available internship opportunities will depend on the facility’s needs and research areas. Recently ORNL researchers have been making headway towards increasing solar power performance and creating proteins on-demand, which would make it easier to produce medicines. Can you imagine yourself playing a part in making such important discoveries as these? Also, don’t forget to check out internships and fellowships available through the Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education. They offer paid and unpaid positions related to energy science and engineering with emphases on policy, research, and mass media.
