New Student Picnic
The New Student Picnic kicks off a night of UT traditions. Meet your friends for food and fun. Following the picnic, there will be a processional to Torch Night.

Torch Night
This ceremony is a UT tradition since 1925. It’s a special and inspiring event to welcome new Vols.

Night in Neyland
Following Torch Night, the evening continues with Night in Neyland, a Big Orange welcome held in our stadium, the largest in the SEC. Learn some of the best-known Vol cheers and chants, sing “Rocky Top,” and more.

Check the Welcome Week website for specific times and locations of the above events.
