Welcome New Student Life Staff

As we begin a new academic year, we are pleased to introduce the newest members of the Student Life team. From staff members transitioning to new positions within Student Life to new staff members joining Rocky Top from other institutions, we are thrilled to begin the fall semester with a team filled with the Volunteer spirit.

We invite you to reach out to new staff to say a quick hello, grab a cup of coffee, or stop by their office to offer a Big Orange welcome!
