University of Tennessee, Tullahoma Space Institute

I grew up in Tennessee and went to the University of Tennessee, but have never been to the Space Institute.  My impression was that this had something to do with activities outside of Earth's atmosphere, but after the visit I have a different view.  It is because there is lot's of open "Space" around the campus.  If they want to grow they really need a football stadium.  But I like it the way it is.

I wouldn't mind going back to study in a place like that!

They only have about 100 students, and I believe they are all aerospace engineers!

Hi Looney,

What a perfect place to study. Small and cosy. My Business School was equally small and I loved it.
So you're from Tennessee? That's wonderful.

@Max, I was born in Philadelphia, and lived several places, but mostly grew up in Tennessee where I also went to the University. It was a beautiful place to grow up, because I loved the outdoors and was doing a lot of bike racing, so was able to explore most of East Tennessee within a 50 mile radius of my home.
