15 Years of
ESL at UTC
A publication of the
University of Tennessee
ESL Fall 2010
The ESL Institute here at UTC has just turned 15 years old. I wanted to take
the opportunity to interview our excellent Director, Jane Womack, in order to
write this article.
How did ESL at UTC begin? Jane Womack started the program in 1995 after
she had been teaching ESL in a community college where she fell in love with
the program. She later visited the University of Texas in Arlington and saw their
ESL program and was advised to start a similar program at UTC. Jane talked to
the Provost of UTC about starting an ESL Institute and she was encouraged to
do it. Jane hired Carolyn Randle to teach with her 20 hours a week. All the
students were in the same class and studied different subjects. The ESL
Institute began with the two teachers and just a few students until it reached
where it is today. Approximately 500 students have attended the program
representing countries from all over the globe.
―We had students from Romania, South Korea, Thailand, and we had Simona
from Italy!‖ Jane remembers. ―I remember her because I picked her up at the
airport and she spoke practically no English and she had a dictionary and my
daughter was with me and we took her to Walmart.‖

Friends, rain or shine. Carolyn and Jane
Jane and Carolyn became friends because of their
mutual love of English. So, naturally, when Jane got the
go-ahead to start up the ESL Institute with the proviso
that she could hire one teacher, she chose Carolyn.
Together they taught the program’s entire twenty hours
per week for the first year. Carolyn is still around,
teaching part-time in the afternoons. Jane says that
Carolyn has always said that teaching ESL at UTC is
the most fun!

15 Years of ESL at UTC (continued from page 1)
By the next summer of 1995 Jane decided to keep the
program going year-round instead of just as a
summer program, so three levels were added.
Future plans? Jane is very hopeful to have an
International House for ESL students to get together
and for better facilities for the ESL students.
Today ESL has more than 10 teachers and the
program has reached a good level with more than 30
students each semester. Jane has kept the program
productive and attractive. Field trips and activities
during the semester take a lot of planning and hard
work that keeps the students interested, having fun,
and yet still learning.

Since ESL at UTC just turned 15 years old, I thought of
interviewing the Provost of the University of Tennessee at
Chattanooga (UTC) to hear more about UTC and the Provost
himself, as he is one of the most important people in the
university. Dr. Oldham is actually very friendly and welcoming.
My meeting with him started with an email from me with a
request to interview the Provost as my ESL project and ended
up with my getting a lot of information about the university and
the kind of tasks that Provosts do.
I went to visit Dr. Oldham in his office at 3:00 on Monday, the
1st of November of 2010. He invited me to have a seat in his
office. Dr. Oldham greeted me and made me feel welcome for
an interview that was meant to be 10 minutes long but lasted
20 minutes of his important time. I asked him if it was O.K to
record the interview. He did not mind.
Abdulaziz: How are you, Sir?
Dr. Oldham: Doing well.
Abdulaziz: Would you mind introducing yourself?
Dr. Oldham: Sure. My name is Phil Oldham. I am the Provost
and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at UTC.
Abdulaziz: That is good. What does a provost do?
Dr. Oldham: Gosh, a little bit of everything actually. A provost
here at UTC is one of four vice chancellors and it is my job as
Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs to pass the
responsibilities of everything academic on campus. All the
schools and colleges, all the academic departments report
thought department heads, deans, or directors and ultimately
to me. So, everything dealing with the academic record of a
student, the admission, the financial aid-- all of those things.
An Interview with
Phil Oldham by Abdulaziz Alrasheed
Abdulaziz: Including international students?
Dr. Oldham: Including international students.
Abdulaziz: That is great!
Dr. Oldham: That is, that is true.
Abdulaziz: I represent a lot of international students
from the ESL program, which happens to be 15 years
old this year.
Dr. Oldham: It’s a good program.
Abdulaziz: It is. It’s a very good program, very good
teachers and an excellent director.
Abdulaziz: So, could you describe a typical work day?
Dr. Oldham: A typical work day? I don't know if I have a
typical work day [He smiles]. Every day is a little
different and actually that is one thing I like about this
job: is it is extremely varied. I can be dealing with
everything from a problem with an individual student
and at one point to be dealing with a financial budget for
an entire college the next hour. So it could range
completely. I may be off campus working with the
leaders from other hiring institutions in the state
of Tennessee on funding formula or articulation
agreements or I may be dealing with a loan aid donor
who is interested in donating funds to the university, so
it’s an extremely varied job.
Abdulaziz: How long have you been Provost of UTC?
Dr. Oldham: I’ve been here a little over three years now.
Prior to that I was the Dean of Art and Sciences
at Mississippi State University.
Abdulaziz: I was about to say how was UTC 15 years
Dr. Oldham: I don’t know how UTC was 15 years ago.
That is a good question. It was certainly smaller that it is
today. I think it was much less developed. It did not
offer the breadth of academic programming that it does
today and it was largely a nonresidential campus. We
did not have nearly the number of residence halls that
we currently do. Now we have about 3000 students that
live on campus. 15 years ago that number would
probably have been 700 or 800. Very different than 15
“The real goal is to create an
environment on this campus
with a stronger appreciation for
the global community.”

Abdulaziz: How do you see UTC in less than 5 years?
Dr. Oldham: Uh, I think we will continue to grow. I think within
five years we will probably be...somewhere around 13000
students and we will hopefully have some additional graduate
programs beyond what we do today. Probably some, probably
at least more doctoral programs within five years. I think we will
be strengthening our undergraduate programs considerably and
I think we will also have strengthened our international
programs significantly within five years.
Abdulaziz: What will you do with the international programs?
Dr. Oldham: I think they will be stronger in five years.
Abdulaziz: Yeah, that was my next point.
Dr. Oldham: Yeah, there is a couple of pieces today, one of
which is we need to clearly be able to attract more international
students to this campus like yourself. The percentage currently
is relatively small. We need to think in terms of at least doubling
that number--maybe tripling that number--on the campus. But
we have to do that fairly strategically. So we need to bring more
international students to this campus but we also need to be
more aggressive at sending our domestic students abroad to a
greater standard, through study abroad programs, semester
abroad, whatever the case might be. So I think in both cases
the real goal is to create an environment on this campus with a
stronger appreciation for the global community. I mean you
need to do both; you need to send current students out and you
need to bring international students in.
UTC has grown rapidly in the last five to eight years. We need
to grow into this body now that we have created, and by that I
mean that … for a long time, UTC was largely a nonresidential
campus, so when students are commuting to campus back and
forth there is not the same level of expectation for a campus
itself as you have when students are living here seven days a
week, twenty four hours a day. We’ve got to create that kind of
24/7 environment on this campus that students and perspective
students expect from a major university so that when a student
decides to take a break from studying at eleven o’clock on
a Friday night there is something else that is going on they can
do. And that has to do a lot with the surrounding community as
well. The community surrounding the campus needs to be
developed in a more student-friendly manner. And all this leads
to ultimately the real prize is a culture on this campus of real
spirit and, and enthusiasm and expectation for achievement
that pushes the students on to do their best work. You know
that is what I would like to see most evolved, is that level of
Abdulaziz: Could that be your goal?
Dr. Oldham: Partly, yeah. It’s bigger than me though. It’s bigger
than just academic affairs. It’s the entire campus community.
What buildings we build, where we build them and what
services we provide. You know, what kind of activities and what
kinds of places we have to open where students can get food in
the middle of the night. But I think we are moving in that
direction. I think in the next five years we will see a lot of

and then back
I have been in Chattanooga for one year
and I really like the small town and the
university. This semester we had a trip to
Lookout Mountain on the Incline Railway
with my teachers and classmates. Before
we started our incline trip, we had lunch
together in Mr. T’s Pizza which served
wonderful pizza and salad. We all
enjoyed it very much. After that, we
crossed the street and prepared to ride
the incline. When I got into the train, I
was so excited because I imagined many
times how the train climbed the mountain
in that gradient.
While the train was moving I saw the
trees around the railway pass by and the
houses on the foot of the mountain get
smaller and smaller.
ESL on the edge: ESLers enjoy the fresh mountain air while they pose for a group
shot. Below is a historic view of the river and the city.
Pizza, the incline, Point Park, and ice
cream—what a super day we had.
It was really a wonderful trip, and we
enjoyed it very much. Thanks UTC!
Thanks Jane Womack!
Some girls screamed when the train
almost plumbed the earth—and that
made the trip more exciting.
After 10 minutes, we reached the peak of
Lookout Mountain. We went to the
balcony. The Chattanooga downtown
was below us and we could recognize
some buildings like the arena and so on.
I really liked the fresh air and beautiful
view on the top of Lookout Mountain.
Then, we walked to Point Park.
I saw a monument in the park
which was donated from New
York after the civil war. We
walked in the park and took a lot
After the park, we walked back
to the train and waited for our
turn to go down the mountain.
Finally, we went back to Mr. T’s
Pizza to have some ice cream.
Everybody had two choices of
flavors. The ice cream was so
good. I am pretty sure that I will
go back and order some other
We all scream for ice cream!

Field Trip to Asheville, North Carolina
Our big field trip to Asheville was fantastic. It started with
the nice scenery on the road and ended with a visit to the
grand Biltmore Estate. Going to the Tupelo Honey Cafe
was great fun, and we got to choose what we wanted
from the menu and it was absolutely a five star
restaurant. I enjoyed the visit to the Biltmore home. We
got to see a remarkable building. I loved the basement
floor and I am still amazed that at that time they had all
those amazing tools, heating systems, ironing, etc. If I go
again, I would love to go through the house one more
time and to theTupelo Honey Cafe twice. :)

Mindy and Dilnar.
Double, double, toil and trouble.
October 31st was Halloween Day in USA, and we had a Halloween
party at Jane’s house. She invited all of the students who are studying in the
ESL institute to attend her party at 5:30 pm. It was my first time to celebrate
this festival and I was excited about it. However, I got a cold on the weekend,
so I was obliged to look at the photographs, which many had taken, to imagine
the funny party.
Everyone who was invited to join the party was requested to wear a
costume. Jane and Anne masqueraded as witches, and they looked like the
witches who were living in an abandoned castle. They might be riding a broom
to meet you at night. And there were two guys from Saudi Arabia, one is
Majid —a handsome vampire, the other is Azeez —an “attractive” guy who has
a big buck tooth-- he was fantastic.
Mindy masqueraded as a sexy catwoman, and Annie masqueraded as an
elf. Dilnar wore her traditional clothes accompanied by her daughter, Dilnaz—
who masqueraded as a cute little witch. Tomoyo’s daughters masqueraded as
a cute rabbit and an elegant witch. Dee masqueraded as a rabbit mother, but
her grandbaby, Rain, was a little “bear”.
It was an interesting mask party, and the costumes were the biggest
highlight of the party. Of course, the delicious food was an indispensable
part of the party, too. The students took some food which they prepared
themselves, and the teachers also prepared many kinds of food. And that was
what I felt the most regret about, because I couldn’t eat these foods and
couldn’t share Chinese food with my friends. Even though we didn’t eat the
delicious food, we hadn’t forgotten how to make aJack-o’-lanterns. They
were made of pumpkin. Firstly, we needed to empty the pumpkin. And then,
we carved its eyes, mouth, nose, eyebrows, and possibly ears. Every Jack-o’-
lantern had a different face, depending on your imagination.
We had a really good time on Halloween Day. Thank you to our nice
teachers and thank you for the best experience of this October. It would be
a fantastic memory in our life. And I’m sorry I missed this good party.

This and That
by Jeongjoo Seo
At the beginning of the semester, the students of ESL have to think hard about choosing classes because
they have no solid ideas about which class is useful for them. Some students need to get a good TOEFL score to
enter a college, and other students, like me, don’t need a TOEFL score.
I chose a class, This and That, for my Wednesday afternoon class. Ms. Dee is teaching us: Annie, Tomoyo,
and me. None of us need a TOEFL score, so we wanted to learn about American culture. We asked our
teacher if we could not study in a classroom, but have an outdoor class for real experience. Teacher Dee
accepted our proposal, and she tries to find a good place for us every week. We went to several restaurants
on our lunchtime. On October 20th, I invited my friend, Kim Thomas, and her daughter, Sarah Thomas. And I
brought my daughter, Gina. Sarah and Gina are schoolmates. I could invite them because they were enjoying
the fall break. Tomoyo brought her daughters, too. And Annie invited Lina. We had a big group. We went to a
restaurant, Genghis Grille. I have already known what I should do for my lunch because Ms. Dee had brought
my daughter and me there before. We enjoyed our lunch, and I could feel learning is very important.
There is a proverb in Korea like this: Watching one time is better than listening one hundred times, and
experiencing one time is better than watching one hundred times. Annie, Tomoyo, and I learned many things
about seating, food, and how to order in a restaurant through this class. I deeply appreciate Ms. Dee to give us
the working knowledge.

After Graduation by Majid Monif
I like the concept of changing. I think each new experience can help me to live a better life. I can't imagine leaving my hometown forever,
but I may stay gone for a long time
Many things In my hometown make me want to stay in it. First, my family, especially my parents, because they will support and help me at
any time . For instance, once I wanted to open a coffee shop. My father gave me very helpful advice about the location. Secondly, in
business I know what people do and do not like. For example, I would know not to open a suit store because it's not usual to wear a suit in
my home town. Lastly, I know the laws of my home town. I don't need to be careful about my life style.
In regards to living away from my hometown, there are many benefits that I can gain. I'm going to focus on my job. Nothing will distract me
such as my family. In business, I'll have unique ideas and also a different vision. I could open a restaurant for my traditional food because
no one here serves it. I have more freedom than in my home town. I can be creative without caring about the community. If I do something
wrong, the people will excuse me because I'm a foreigner.
I have to be realistic on whether or not I would like to stay in my hometown after graduation. I think trying new experiences from a different
place is very important to help me become more mature. When I think that I'm ready to make a family, my home town is my choice. At this
moment, I'm not ready for the family so I'm enjoying the freedom of living away from home.

was in London in 1851, which marked the coming
Industrial Revolution. Expo 2010 was held in Shanghai,
the most prosperous international metropolis in China,
from May 1–October 31, 2010. It was a good opportunity
for China to show its achievements in the fields of social
construction, science and technology, economy and
culture. The Expo also provided exhibitors all over the
