UT Traditions


The Traditions Student Services Committee is responsible for preserving and revitalizing traditions at The University of Tennessee while at the same time creating new ones for the volunteer community to embrace. The traditions committee holds many outreach events throughout the school year, and it works in conjunction with other offices and student organizations on campus to engage UT students in some of the University’s most celebrated traditions.
