I met more people while I was an undergraduate than I ever thought possible, and they became my best friends. I also discovered what I truly care about and how to make a difference. UT is responsible for who I am today and who I will be in the future.
I am so excited to be a part of the Big Orange family and I can’t wait to meet you. My advice to you, as you are preparing for college, is to visit college campuses!

I received many college admissions and scholarship offers, but my campus visit to UT finally convinced me that it was the place I wanted to go to college. Make an official visit to UT and hopefully you’ll feel the same way I did.
I have about forty great colleagues in the Admissions Office, and I enjoy meeting prospective students and families and sharing with them information about the great opportunities offered at UT.
UT is a place where a student can be challenged academically, while enjoying the robust culture of the surrounding Knoxville community. It is not often you visit a foreign place and immediately feel at home, but from the first day on campus at University of Tennessee, I felt right at home.
I work with transfer students, and I enjoy interacting with the diverse student population that can be found in the community college system. It is great to be able to give people options that will ultimately change the future not only for themselves but for future generations who follow them.
I love speaking with students and helping them see that if they truly desire to attend UT, it is attainable! I receive questions daily on the application process, and I enjoy when my answers help prospective students get closer to being a Vol.
I love that I get to help prospective students in their college decision and let them know all the wonderful things that the University of Tennessee can offer them. UT is such an exciting place to go to school. I love that I can be a small part in helping someone get here.
Get to know your professors and other staff on campus. You’re surrounded by people who want to help you. UT offers such a great support system, and the more connections you make the happier you’ll be and the more involved you’ll be on campus.
College is one of the most memorable times in your life. It’s imperative that you take advantage of opportunities such as internships, study abroad, student organizations, and great academic courses. You don’t want to graduate and wish that you had done this or that.
I love talking to prospective students and their families. Because of the great experience I had as an undergraduate at UT, I love being able to tell them about the experience that awaits. Selecting a university is one of the most important decisions you can make and I’m so glad to be a part of that!
Transfer students are a unique component to the admissions process but play such a valuable role here at UT. I will be working with you every step of the way because I am committed to making sure you have a seamless transfer but also an enjoyable experience to UT!!!
