Torch Night


Torch Night, immediately following the New Student Picnic, is a Tennessee tradition that has been observed since 1925 when all new students were formally welcomed to the university community. Each fall, the upperclassmen symbolically pass down the Torch of Preparation to the new student class at Torch Night.
