Hey Vol parents! I’m glad you’re here.
We published our first Parent’s Guide last year and knew right off the bat how important this issue is to you parents. My mom went to UT, so she knew enough about this university to feel knowledgable. You may be walking onto this campus for the first time, and we’re happy to help you find your place here.
You’re one of the most important parts of the Vol experience as you support your student as they go through some of the best — and most challenging — times of their lives.
One of my biggest goals as the Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Beacon is to give students, faculty and staff the utmost information to help their experience on Rocky Top. It’s my biggest pleasure to help do the same for you parents as you descend upon Vol country for the 2019 Fall Family Weekend.
In this issue, you’ll find resources, tips, opinions, events and updates on what’s happening on our campus. We’ve carefully crafted every piece of content to ensure that you’re receiving the most you can out of this guide.
I’m excited you’re here on Rocky Top! There’s nothing we love more than sharing our campus with you.
