The half-hour program begins its twentieth season on Sunday, March 9, at 11:30 a.m. UT Today was named the best student newscast in the state by the Tennessee Associated Press Broadcasters Association in 2013. The program is produced by an advanced television news class taught by Sam Swan, professor of journalism and electronic media.
Student@Tennessee is UT’s official student e-mail newsletter highlighting upcoming events, reminders, articles, and other news important to current students. The newsletter is published on Mondays and Thursdays during the semester.View Current Issue
We have several programs to help students succeed.
Student@Tennessee is collected, edited, and distributed by the Office of Communications and Marketing in conjunction with the Division of Student Life.
The newsletter is published on Mondays and Thursdays during the academic semester. Publication is suspended during the summer and when classes are not in session.
The publication welcomes submissions from UT students, faculty, and staff regarding upcoming events, honors, and other news.
All events listed must be geared primarily to students and sponsored by university faculty, staff, students, academic departments, administrative units, or university-recognized clubs or interest groups. Events must be open to all UT students, and must first be submitted to the campus calendar.
Event submissions must include the type of event, location (building and room number), date and time, name of UT groups or academic units sponsoring the event, contact name, phone number and e-mail address, and any associated website URLs.
Fundraising events/activities of university clubs or interest groups will be included if they benefit a third-party philanthropy or address a program or need that affects the entire student population, not just the club or interest group.
Submissions must be received by 2:00 p.m. ET Thursday to be considered for inclusion in the following Monday edition and by 2:00 p.m. on Monday to be considered for inclusion in the Thursday edition of the newsletter. Submissions received more than one month in advance may be held until the event is one month away, then included in one or more editions of newsletter at the discretion of the editor.
It is the responsibility of the item contributor to notify the editor if any pertinent detail changes after the first publication of that item, so it can be corrected in subsequent editions of newsletter. The editor reserves the right to edit all listings for space and content considerations.
