Local downtown businesses have decked out their stores in UTC colors to help “Paint the Town Blue & Gold” to promote upcoming Mocs Athletics events. In coordination with the RiverCity Company, the UTC Student Government Association and Athletic Department outfitted the 50 businesses with streamers, balloons, and UTC decorations.

With the football, volleyball, golf, cross-country, and soccer teams all hosting competitions in Chattanooga over the next few weeks, the University wants the entire city to come out and support all of the Mocs athletes.
