Big Orange Fridays: Show Your UT Spirit Every Friday
We’re turning a longtime Friday football tradition into a year-round celebration. Big Orange Friday encourages you to wear orange each and every Friday to celebrate and support UT. Watch this Big Orange Friday video featuring UT students and faculty, Chancellor Cheek, and Smokey!
UT has more campus tours for prospective students and their families on Fridays than any other day. Seeing students, faculty, and staff wearing orange will help show a Big Orange welcome to prospective Volunteers.
You can share how you’re wearing your orange by posting on social media using the hashtag #BigOrangeFriday on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
