Join Dean Steve Smith for the 5th Annual Library Tailgate

For the fifth year in a row, Dean of Libraries Steve Smith invites our UT Library Supporters to come and experience a unique tailgating adventure here on Rocky Top.

Guests at our annual Library Tailgate Party enjoy an elaborate cookout on our rooftop patio overlooking the entire University of Tennessee campus. Those at the pre-game celebration can visit with fellow Vols; meet our librarians, faculty, and staff; catch up on the ongoing action in the SEC on our big-screen TVs; and learn more about the Libraries’ programs and goals for the future. Early attendees can also score some UT Vols swag to take with them to the game and help cheer on the Vols against the University of Massachusetts Minutemen.

With breathtaking views of the Neyland Stadium from the John C. Hodges Library’s vantage point high above Volunteer Boulevard, attendees will also have the opportunity to watch the procession of the Pride of the Southland Marching Band from the Natalie Haslam Music Building into the Stadium.

Please join your fellow Library Supporters at the 2017 Library Tailgate Party prior to the Vols game against the University of Massachusetts Minutemen on Saturday, September 23rd, at 9 a.m. in the 6th Floor Staff Lounge of the John C. Hodges Library. Kickoff is at noon. RSVP attendance to or 865-974-6903.
