Students in one UT English class spent the semester learning a lot more than grammar and punctuation. This semester, English lecturer Erin Smith challenged her English 255 students to practice their public writing skills by running fund-raising campaigns for local charities. “I wanted my students to have an opportunity to learn the importance of their writing skills in the real world,” Smith said.
A celebration of the Rock in its new site at Volunteer Boulevard and Pat Head Summitt Street is planned for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18. The celebration will include a live remote broadcast by WUTK 90.3 “The Rock” radio station and the opportunity to leave your mark on the Rock.
For the fourth year in a row, WUTK-FM 90.3 “The Rock,” UT Knoxville’s student-run radio station, has been named the Best Radio Station in Knoxville by local weekly publication Metro Pulse.
