Homecoming 2021: Charge the Checkerboard

Homecoming is a time for all Volunteers to come together and celebrate the history, traditions, and spirit of the University of Tennessee. This year, Homecoming events were held November 7-13, 2021.

Homecoming is planned by a campus-wide committee of volunteers and provides opportunities for the campus community to engage in the Volunteer spirit and feel at home on Rocky Top.


What began in 1794 as a small college in the Southwest Territory is now Tennessee’s flagship university and premier public research institution. For 225 years, Volunteers have been lighting the way for other, across Tennessee and throughout the world.

September 10, 2019, marked the 225 year anniversary of the University of Tennessee.

Homecoming is a great time for alumni to reconnect to the campus and reunite with old friends. It is also a great time for current students to celebrate what makes the university truly unique and outstanding.
