UT welcomes another impressive freshman class | News
(WBIR-Knoxville) Another impressive freshman class will be the newest Volunteers next week.
"Each year we talk about our new students' impressive academic qualifications and we use the words 'best and brightest.' We recognize that it is hard to believe that we've been able to improve the profile every year, but we are attracting first-rate students from Tennessee and around the world," Cheek said.
"We always enjoy the start of every academic year and sharing this experience with our new Volunteers," Cheek said. "Our new students arrive full of excitement and are eager to start this new chapter of their lives. We are honored they chose to become Volunteers.”
