Exciting changes, including a new location inside the recently renovated Brehm Animal Science Arena, await visitors to Ag Day 2013. Ag Day is the annual event for alumni and friends of the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture.
Festivities will begin on Oct. 5. four hours before the Vols take on the Georgia Bulldogs in Neyland Stadium. Current and former students, faculty, staff and friends will celebrate reunions and learn what's new at the UT Institute of Agriculture.
