This morning I was accepted into UT. I'm very relieved and excited to finally be coming to Knoxville. My question for the board is what dorm would you say is the best for a freshman. I'm coming from Southeast Missouri and will likely know nobody, so what is the board's recommendation on where to live?

It's Great To Be A Tennessee Vol!
Can't help you with your question but congratulations on your acceptance. GO VOLS!
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
No clue but congrats
I Graduated from UT in 1998 and lived in Reese my freshman year. I really enjoyed it. My wife is also a graduate and lived in Hess. You will enjoy your time wherever you land. Best of luck and Go Vols!

Congratulations and I don't know.
Carrick all day.
N. Carrick or Reese are ideal. I was in carrick in 03/04 and had friends in Reese. They are basically the same. Can't go wrong with either. Congrats!
I'm a student here now. they all suck but congrats on getting accepted.
Butch Jones. Who???
The most popular one when I was there from 2004-2008 was Reese. I lived in Hess which was not very good from a structural standpoint but it is my understanding that it has undergone a renovation. Hess is also centrally located and right next to the library. But Reese and the Carrick's are all bunched together with the main on campus food court being right there with obviously more students to associate with. I would absolutely see to it that you get one of these (Reese, North Carrick, or Hess) because they collectively are the best on campus. Hess is just down Religion Row from Reese and Carrick and butts up to the pedestrian walkway. Hess is better location for classes on the hill and the stadium, Presidential Court is better for T-Recs and AG campus.
Super Congratulations. +1
Just want to say congratulations ans wish you the best. No clue where to tell you to live, but it looks like some of these guys can help out.
Reese Hall was great -- in 1987.
Congrats. Lets give this young man some +1s everybody.
Avoid "Hess is a mess" (Community bathrooms, ew) and "No limit Clement" (stayed here for orientation, not impressed). Carrick (i stayed in South Carrick my Freshman year, the setup offers the most privacy, IMO) and Reese are good, Morrill isn't bad either (you can rearrange the furniture and it's basically in the same spot as the other two).
As was North Carrick in '85.
"Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat." Sir Robin's Minstrels.
North Carrick (#1) or Reese... you want to be in the Presidential Complex. Granted it's the furthest from all the freshman classes on the hill, but I found all the walking helped minimize the freshman 15.
Congrats! I would stay in Reese Hall, I loved it there and it is in the middle of presidential courtyard. Good luck!
Carrick worked out great for me. Either way living in presidential is important because you are surrounded by other freshman and you have a cafeteria and subway and a mini market all in presidential court! A great place to meet other freshman. And you only share a shower and bathroom with only 3 other people instead of a whole floor.
North Carrick was a hoot my freshman year, 1974.
