UTK ('K' is for Knoxville) is where I did my undergraduate studies. Good school, great town. It also made my transition to ORNL easy as it's all in a fairly small area and everybody knows everybody. Those were good times.
Just thought I would share. It isn't very often you hear about the school (or even Tennessee), ORNL or any of the other science and tech goings on in that little corner of the world.
