Ever wonder how campus has changed since you were a student? Do you wonder what is happening in the new buildings under construction or those that have just been completed on campus? The UT Student Alumni Associates (SAAs) would like to take you on a tour of the ever-changing campus.

When you come to town for the Orange-and-White football game on April 16, you will have a chance to take a walking tour of the university’s campus on Friday afternoon, April 15, led by one or two SAAs, members of the university’s premier student leadership organization.

You’ll tour Ayres Hall, recently renovated according to the plan by the building’s original architects in the early 20th century. The SAAs will also guide you through the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy and the James A. Haslam II Business Building.

The SAAs hope to make these walking tours a regular offering for alumni and fans on Friday afternoons during the fall football season.

Student Alumni Associates know the campus. Besides the obvious—they are students and attend classes across campus—SAAs are familiar with the university’s traditions and history, act as the student body’s representatives as the university’s administration hosts UT’s public occasions, and they work closely with the university’s alumni to host UT Alumni Association events and chapter meetings.
