Declaration Day

Mark your Calendar for May 1, 2018!

Every year by midnight on May 1, high school seniors across the country must confirm where they will attend college. This year, we are celebrating the students who have declared that the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will be their college home–and showing future Vols what UT is all about.

Just as we did on National Signing Day, we are taking over the Ray and Lucy Hand Digital Studio and celebrating the newest members of the class of 2022.

This year’s broadcast will be from 6 to 7 p.m. EDT. It will be shown on this webpage and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville Facebook page via Facebook Live.
