This was my first time in Knoxville and i had to see where Dave Ramey went to school along with the Big Orange. The campus is looks very well kept, busy students, nice weather, the Hill, Vol Shop, and many other neat things to look at. Parking was a little challenging.

The University is a nice and well-maintained place to visit, with friendly employees and lovely architecture. It is an historic piece of Knoxville.

Liked the campus and reminded me of Bascom Hill Area at UW-Madison. Smaller size but friendly feel and well kept up U.

UT hosted a printmaking conference which included visitors from all over the globe. The exhibitions from the Wroclaw School of Printmaking and the Association of Norwegian Printmakers were very well done and highlighted exceptional artwork.

nothing to really see but traffic and idiot people crossing in front of your car. be prepared to slam on the brakes. during game season lots of people tailgaiting and just parking everywhere. traffic is a nightmare if it's game day.

My youngest son wanted to take an official campus tour. The tour staff were excellent! The setting next to the Tennessee River in view of the Smoky Mountains is beautiful. However, the campus itself is just average. The most impressive part of campus is Neyland Stadium. This is certainly one of the great venues in college football.

AL vs TN game at Neyland Stadium. What a perfect weekend....great rivalry, weather, and riverfront location. Tennessee River is such a beautiful asset to the campus and the city. Vol fans and local businesses showed true southern hospitality.

The U of TN Aquatic Center is a great pool for Conference Swimming and Diving Competitions. The pool appears to be only a few years old with well designed competition and practice areas and great diving area. The stands have stadium chairs in the lower rows.

We stopped by The University of Tennesee campus on our way to a resort in Dandrige. The campus was beautiful as it was in the spring. Football season was over so the campus was calm and quiet. The campus was near World's Fair Park which is nice for the students. I enjoyed the campus visit, butit was a typical college... More
