Vol Spirit Abroad

Our alumni are jet setters, and when they go abroad they take UT with them. Take a look at some of the places that our alumni have shown off their Vol pride.

Nathan Kirkham (’99, ’05) worked at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica in January and February 2012. McMurdo is the largest research station on the Antarctic continent.

Katie Suggs (’02) in front of the “Big Orange” house in Burano, Italy. “Everyone who saw this picture knew I would love the house because it was close to Tennessee orange,” Suggs said.

Jesse Overbay (’05, ’08) at the Great Wall of China in March 2012.

Rita Silen (’74) is a certified nurse anesthetist involved in humanitarian relief all over the world. She graduated in the first class of the College of Nursing and said she always brings along her UT surgical cap. She is pictured here in Gimbie, Ethiopia, in November 2011.
