WELCOME TO ROCKY TOP! Whether you’re planning your first visit to campus or you’re with us right now, we are glad to welcome you to our home sweet home. As you spend time on our campus and in our city, I know you will see all that makes this place special. Take in our eclectic shops and restaurants, sprawling parks and trails, and active neighborhoods. Don’t miss campus landmarks like Neyland Stadium and Hodges Library or lesser-known gems like Ray’s Place and the Melrose Courtyard. From the mountains and rivers that beckon for adventure to the vibrant city streets that invite new experiences, East Tennessee is a place for everyone. At the heart of it all is a campus full of Volunteers committed to discovery, leadership, and service. Tennessee is a place where you will create meaningful memories and adopt a Volunteer spirit that you will carry with you wherever you go.

VOL TRADITIONS First things first. Go to your closet and start picking out what you’re going to wear on your first Big Orange Friday. Next, start learning the words to “Rocky Top.” We could keep going with this list, but we’ve got more than 225 years of traditions for our Vols to enjoy. Take a look at a few of our favorites.

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS

References to the Tennessee Volunteers began during the 1800s, when thousands of Tennesseans volunteered in response to the president’s call for service. Our football team earned the moniker in 1902, and it reflects our rich tradition of leadership and service.

THE VOLUNTEER CREED

Displayed at the base of the Volunteer statue in Circle Park is the university community’s guiding principle: “One that beareth a torch shadoweth oneself to give light to others.”

SMOKEY

Smokey, our beloved bluetick coonhound, leads the Vols by running through the T before each home football game. A costumed version of Smokey first emerged in the 1970s and is a top collegiate mascot and star on and off the field.

‘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 we sing it at the top of our lungs to cheer on our Volunteers.

“ One that beareth a torch shadoweth oneself to give light to others.” —The Volunteer Creed

PRIDE OF THE SOUTHLAND BAND

More than 300 members strong and with a 150-year history, the band 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.

BIG ORANGE FRIDAY

UT’s distinctive orange color is said to have been inspired by a cluster of orange-and-white daisies on the Hill. Every Friday, all members of the Volunteer family, wherever they are, wear orange to celebrate and support the university.
