“Remember this. It’s the most important advice I have to give. Control the things that you can control, and let go of the rest. And know the difference between the two… When opportunity arises, you will be ready.”

—Conrad Ricamora (MFA, ’12), actor and guest speaker for the College of Arts and Sciences celebration


Celebrating Our Spring 2020 Graduates

We weren’t together this year on Rocky Top for commencement exercises, but we were united across the country and the world by our Volunteer spirit. We are proud that these new Vols for Life will continue to represent the University of Tennessee as alumni.
