The University of Tennessee at Martin has again earned the designation as one of the “Best in the Southeast” in The Princeton Review for 2008.
“University of Tennessee at Martin is one of 146 schools . . . receiving our “Best in the Southeast” designation, said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review publisher and editorial director. “We commend these institutions for their excellent academics, and we believe our choices offer applicants and their parents in these regions a wide range of fine schools to consider … .” The regions include the Northeast, Midwest, Southeast and West.
In the recently released student opinion data in The Princeton Review, one student noted that UT Martin, “is big enough to get the full college experience, yet small enough to get one-on-one attention from your teachers.” Another said that the school “offers a lot of additional help, when needed, to allow its students to excel.”
UT Martin is West Tennessee’s only public, four-year institution outside of Memphis. Despite being located outside a large metropolitan area, students cited the variety of activities available on campus. As one undergraduate said, “It all depends on how involved you want to get here. There is a Student Activities Council that makes sure there are things to do every week.” Overall, students love that it’s “so easy to get involved.” Even the outdoors is a significant part of campus life at UT Martin. One student explained, “If you love to hunt, this is the place to come.”
And, more than one student mentioned that there is a “general friendliness” on the campus. “Students feel like they belong here. The small-town atmosphere provides a safe environment in which to spend your four years.”
“We are delighted to again be recognized as one of the ‘Best in the Southeast’ designation. Our students and alumni are our best ambassadors,” said Dr. Thomas Rakes, university chancellor.
