University of Tennessee
The University of Tennessee was founded in 1794, two years before Tennessee became a state, and is located on “The Hill” above the north shore of the Tennessee River. The school is home to one of the government’s largest research labs, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Every home football game, thousands of Tennessee Volunteers fans cheer on the team during the “Vol Walk.”
The buildings depicted are the College of Law, the Torchbearer, Ayres Hall, and Old South College Hall. The Torchbearer serves as the University’s official symbol which holds the torch of enlightenment. Ayres Hall was built in a Gothic Revival style and the checkerboard pattern on the top of the tower has been replicated in orange and white in the Neyland Stadium end zones. South College Hall is the school’s oldest building.
University of Tennessee delights in its history, academics, and athletics making this a unique gift for recent graduates, past alumni, and fans of all ages. Relive the memories!
