UT Traditions

The mission of the Traditions Committee of the University of Tennessee is to use the legacy of the volunteer spirit to unify the volunteer community, celebrating all that makes a Vol. We accomplish this goal through engaging events and programming like our hallmark Big Orange Fridays, partnerships with various organizations on campus, All Vol Tailgates, Slap the Rock, and the Homecoming Bonfire.

UT Traditions hosts many events to teach students about the special traditions we have here at UT and encourage our school spirit! You can find Traditions on each Friday before a home game in the fall hosting Big Orange Friday on pedestrian walkway or playing with Smokey to celebrate his birthday. Traditions also does Homecoming events and All Vol Tailgates on some home game Saturdays! Traditions is a great way to show and spread your UT spirit!
