Circle Park

Circle Park hosts social events and serves as a lovely outdoor space for students to picnic, relax, and interact. The Volunteer Statue, nicknamed the Torchbearer, greets visitors at the entrance to Circle Park. Plaques commemorating the service of Victor “Vic” Davis, UT's first full-time alumni secretary, and the Volunteer Creed are in place at Torchbearer Plaza.

Until UT expanded to the west in the late 1960s, Circle Park was surrounded by Victorian residences. Some had become fraternity houses at the time of the expansion.

Very well planned and executed. Innovative! It was a lot of fun, and the weather cooperated. Hoping that they will do more of these!

So wonderful. Afterwards, my day felt so calm and clear and I was able to navigate a difficult situation with more ease because of my level headedness.

There was not enough food for everyone. I had to go somewhere else for lunch.
