Hey y'all, I'm thinking about transferring to UTC from the University of Alabama(too much of a party school, financial,etc.) What are y'all's opinions on the school? I'm originally from Memphis by the way.

My husband is an engineering master's student there. That's the only "school" he has experience with. What's your major?

My husband and I both went to UTC, both in the school of business. We loved our time there, and are excited to be relocating back to the area!

I have the general impression that though UTC isn't technically a "party school", it is definitely "party oriented". Especially in certain subgroups.

I could be wrong in how it has evolved in the last 6 years, but I think it all depends on who you associate yourself with. I like to think UTC is a pretty balanced school. Could have changed more than I imagine, though!

All of them can be party schools. It's who you are involved with and the choices you make. High school is the same way..private or public. I've actually seen more partiers at private schools than public as the money is usually there for the kids to do such partying. More kids in private schools have vehicles than public school kids which can lead to more freedom for choices.

I'm finishing up my masters in literature at UTC. If you don't have high expectations or you're highly self-motivated, UTC is fine. It's a small regional school with limited class subject diversity made even less so by recent budget cuts. Personally, my graduate courses felt like a repeat of undergrad (which was not UTC), but I don't fault the professors - it's just the program serving its community base. College is what you make of it more than what it makes of you.

Overall the school is not very organized when it comes to departmental communication. I often marvel at the high rate of employment UTC provides for the mentally challenged. You may find yourself making many phone calls to the same departments over and over just to find out a simple piece of information.

Most graduate courses are a repeat of undergrad (just more in depth). My friend got her Bachelor's in Accounting as well as well as her MAcc. from UT-Knoxville. Their program is tough, but she said the classes were about the same, just more intense and more involved. She now works with PwC in Atlanta.

I took summer courses at UTC and enjoyed them. I guess it also depends on your major. Their business school is good.
