The Chattanoogan did a wrap-up of UT’s new facilities including the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center, RecSports Complex, and the John D. Tickle Engineering Building. “If you are a University of Tennessee at Knoxville graduate and have not been to campus in a while, you might think you are in the Emerald City, not Big Orange Country, during your next visit,” wrote reporter John Shearer.
Several news outlets including WBIR-TV covered the opening of the new John D. Tickle Engineering Building this fall. Officials gave a tour of the five-story, 110,000-square-foot building which has been under construction for more than two-and-a-half years. It will house the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Industrial and Systems Engineering.
