Circle Park is undergoing a major transformation this summer with the Torchbearer encased in a protective cover, construction fencing encircling the Park and backhoes churning away.
When the renovation is complete, the plaza will feature new landscaping, seating, and sidewalks. More details about the changes can be found in a recent Tennessee Today article, http://tntoday.utk.edu/2015/04/24/renovations-slated-torchbearer-plaza-circle-park/?&utm_source=tntoday&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2015-04-28.
Plan now to make a trip back to campus sometime this fall to see the renovations first hand. Here are some dates to consider:
September 12 – first home football game UT v. Oklahoma
Thursday, October 1 – CCI Diversity and Inclusion Festival
November 7 – CCI Tailgate, 3 hours prior to kickoff of the UT v. South Carolina football game
November 14 – Homecoming, UT v. University of North Texas
Let us know when you plan to stop by and we’ll roll out the orange carpet for you! Email CCI Director of Development Patrick Powell, firstname.lastname@example.org.
