About Knoxville

Knoxville is a city that is located in the eastern region of Tennessee. It is home to over 178,000 people, which makes it the third largest city in Tennessee in terms of population. Knoxville was first founded in 1791, and it was incorporated into a city in 1815. James White is credited as being the founder of this city. The current mayor is Madeleine Rogero. Knoxville is sometimes referred to as The Marble City or Queen City of The Mountains.

Knoxville has a humid subtropical climate. This means that it has very hot summers and short mild winters. However, Knoxville does not get as hot as many other southern cities because it has a higher elevation. The average high in the summer time is around 87 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average high in the winter is around 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Snow is an occasional occurrence in this city. It is estimated that Knoxville has over 2260 hours of sunshine every year.

The main campus of the University of Tennessee is located in Knoxville. Currently, there are over 27,000 students enrolled, and students have the option of choosing from over 300-degree programs. This city is also home to Knoxville College, which is a historically African-American college. Knoxville College only has about 100 students, which also makes it one of the smallest colleges in the United States. South College, Pellissippi State College and Johnson University are some of the other noted colleges in the area.

Knoxville is also known for having one of the highest high school graduating rates in the country. According to a recent study, over 86 percent of students graduate from high school in this city. The national average is around 76 percent.
