Student Recreation Center
The University of Alabama
"I had such a great experience at UT Martin! Being from out of state, I had no idea this place existed until I showed up on campus! But while I was here, I wanted to get involved and sought opportunities that would broaden my experience at UT Martin. Working at Campus Recreation and the Fine Arts Computer lab helped me build a network of friends that are so valuable to me. I loved the fact that my professors were available to help me while I was there, but also welcomed me “home” whenever I came back for a visit. I have a job that I love and I credit UT Martin for helping me get to where I am, personally and professionally."
"I am very proud to be a graduate of the Fine Arts program at UT Martin. While the education I received was fantastic, it was the relationships I had with my faculty and staff that set my experience apart. They didn't just tell me that they cared, but they showed me. Almost 10 years later, I still communicate with several professors and staff members and probably always will. I am now the proud owner of Raines Design, a creative marketing company. We service our clients through a carefully selected blend of solutions including printed media, advertisements, the web, and commercial printing. Without the foundation I received at UT Martin, I don't know if my success would have been possible."
Liberty Technology Magnet High School
"The Visual and Theatre Arts Department provided me with the tools to succeed by offering many opportunities to get involved and network with artists and art educators. The faculty and staff were and are still very supportive and helpful in my career decisions. Because of my UTM experience, I'm immersed in the field of art education, a profession I love."
