Director of Undergraduate Academic Advancement
The best things UT has to offer are the wide range of academic programs, honors opportunities for top students, and the great cultural, social, and recreational environment of the campus. As a comprehensive research university, UT offers so many opportunities without being intimidating. This is also one of the most geologically interesting parts of the United States, and the beautiful scenery and pleasant climate help to make this a terrific place to live. Knoxville is a great city with its own distinctive history and culture and is only a few hours drive from major metropolitan areas like Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Cincinnati.
I have about 40 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.
