The Rock

The Rock—a 97.5-ton hunk of Knox dolomite stone—has served as an iconic campus symbol. Most every day, and sometimes multiple times a day, individuals and groups paint the surface of the Rock, which sits at the corner of Volunteer Boulevard and Pat Head Summitt Street, to express opinions or congratulations as well as other messages.
