Welcome to the University of Tennessee and the great city of Knoxville. We couldn’t be happier to host you on Rocky Top! There’s never been a better time to be at UT. Over the last several years, our campus has undergone an amazing transformation to provide our students with some of the best learning experiences imaginable. We take great pride in being known as the Volunteers. We lead and serve others in our quest to make a difference across the state, the nation, and our world. I encourage you to visit the Torchbearer statue during your visit and reflect on what it means to bear a torch for others. In February 2017, I moved to Knoxville to become the university’s eighth chancellor. I trust you will find our community to be as warm and welcoming as I have, and I hope you enjoy your visit as much as we enjoy having you here. Go Vols!

On the Cover March 29, 2017: More than 3,100 students; about 700 faculty, staff, and retirees; about 400 alumni; and one bluetick coonhound set the Guinness World Record title for the largest human letter.

OUR TRADITIONS Having been around for more than 220 years, the University of Tennessee has established many meaningful symbols and beloved traditions. Some are distinguished, and some are just plain fun. Below are our favorites, but you can read more at utk.edu/aboutut/traditions.

Tennessee Volunteers References to the Tennessee Volunteers began during the War of 1812, when Tennesseans volunteered en masse in response to President James Madison’s call for service. Our football team earned the moniker in 1902. Others may be bulldogs or tigers, but we are Volunteers—proud of our rich tradition of leadership and service.

The Volunteer Creed “One that beareth a torch shadoweth oneself to give light to others.” The Volunteer Creed was inscribed on small replicas of the Torchbearer statue beginning in 1937. It is now displayed at the base of the Torchbearer in Circle Park and is the university community’s guiding principle.

Pride of the Southland Band More than 300 members strong, the band has made the song “Rocky Top” famous. It leads the Vol Walk before each home game and forms the T that welcomes our football team onto the field. Known for its precision and style, it’s the only college band to march in 12 consecutive presidential inaugural parades.

Big Orange Friday UT’s distinctive orange color was inspired by a small cluster of orange and white daisies on the Hill. The university encourages all members of the Volunteer family, wherever they are, to wear orange every Friday to celebrate and support the university.

‘Rocky Top’ “Rocky Top” has been UT’s heartfelt anthem since the early 1970s. On game days in the fall, the song resonates from Neyland Stadium as Big Orange Country sings at the top of its lungs to cheer on our Volunteers.

Smokey Smokey, a bluetick coonhound, is famous for leading the Vols on the run through the T before each home football game. A costumed version of Smokey first emerged in the 1970s. Known to sport a tuxedo, overalls, or a Big Orange jersey, he’s a top collegiate mascot and a star on and off the field.
