Alumni

  • Tamika Catchings (’00, ’02) learned more than basketball from her coach, Pat Summitt. And she put those lessons into action through her Catch the Stars Foundation.

  • The guest book sits on a table at the entrance of Gus Manning’s room at Little Creek Sanitarium. Adorned with an orange cover, its pages are filled with names and dates printed in blue ink. From famous athletes and coaches to everyday people like secretaries and ticket takers, the content reveals the depth of Manning’s impact at the University of Tennessee. Manning worked nearly 50 years in the Tennessee athletics department after graduating from the university in 1950.

  • From folk to country and rock to opera, UT alumni span the music industry. Find out more about these Volunteers who write and perform songs, top the charts, and tour the world making music. We’ve even put together a Spotify playlist of some tunes for you to enjoy.

  • Cycerli Ash (’10) was a Division I athlete who followed her dream of acting to the University of Tennessee. Now, she’s an actress on the rise who takes the time to give back to her alma mater.

  • If Marshall Ramsey were to draw a cartoon about his time at UT, he’d doodle a picture of himself sitting with his dad in Neyland Stadium watching his first UT football game in 1980. It was the moment he knew he wanted to be a Volunteer.

  • Twenty years ago, Michael Bishop (MS ’83) stumbled on police records about the murder of UT freshman Paula Herring in Nashville in 1964. A man was convicted of the murder, but the more Bishop researched, the more he realized that something just wasn’t right.
