Krystal is a fast food icon founded in Chattanooga during the Great Depression that now spans the Southeast. On January 28, the Krystal Company presented the College of Business with a collection of artifacts from Krystal’s history to inform and inspire UTC students.  Krystal also endowed two scholarships for UTC business students.

University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn announced the Mocs will no longer participate in men’s indoor and outdoor track & field and are limiting participation in men’s cross country after the end of the 2014-15 season.

“This was a very difficult decision,” stated Blackburn.  “You never want to cut a program, but based on our current Title IX situation and the current financial climate, it was a decision that had to be made.”

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is included for the second year in the top 25 Best Colleges for Veterans among Regional Universities in the South, according to U.S. News and World Report.

UTC’s participation “in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty service members apply for, pay for and complete their degrees” earned the University a spot at number 22 for 2015.

Joy Krause has just finished making her first documentary film. She was inspired to make a film herself after taking a class on documentary films here at UTC. She’d come back to school after having spent most of her life running her own business. She had no intention of becoming a filmmaker when she first enrolled here, but after seeing a film in which a woman began a relationship with—and eventually married—a man on death row, she was intrigued.

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will honor women veterans on Monday November 10, 2014 by celebrating Women Veterans Appreciation Day from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
