UTCVM is one of only 30 veterinary colleges in the nation, providing opportunities for Tennessee students, while serving pet owners and the livestock industry as well as protecting public health, enhancing medical knowledge and generating economic benefits to the state and nation.
Knoxville Life: From Big Orange athletics to outdoor life to great restaurants and craft beer, Knoxville has something for everyone.
“Sheltered by the peaks of the nation’s most-visited national park, the Knoxville region offers adventure seekers two national forests, nine state parks and more than 1,000 square miles of waterways, plus an Urban Wilderness located just three miles from Downtown. From festival-laden streets to music-filled stages and captivating performances, creativity is steeped into the fabric of the valley. The arts gained an even greater foothold in 2016 when Knoxville was designated as the first Etsy Maker City in the United States. In addition, Knoxville offers one of the nation’s lowest costs of living, coming in 14.6% below the national average.”
