After three years of planning, CCI’s new patio opened for business on September 11. The patio, which is adjacent to CCI’s Lobby on the Circle Park level of the Communications Building, provides CCI with 3,000 square feet of outdoor community space. It features stone pavers and a contemporary railing with beautiful vistas of Neyland Stadium and the Tennessee River. Outdoor lighting and patio furniture will be added in the near future to complete the patio project.
“The CCI Patio is a dream come true. It provides our students, faculty and staff with a wonderful outdoor venue to meet, study and socialize,” said CCI Dean Mike Wirth. “It is also a great place for holding special events such as the recently held Grad Student Picnic and Diversity Festival and the upcoming UT vs. South Carolina game CCI Tailgate. I am very grateful for the donor support that made this possible.”
