Aug. 9 was the first day of class on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus. For 56 high school juniors, that is. University High, a Hamilton County Schools initiative headquartered at UTC, made its long-awaited debut. The program was designed as a college pipeline for high school students who might not have seen themselves heading toward a four-year university education.
A weather station was recently installed on the roof of Lupton Hall. Similar stations are being installed statewide on campuses of the University of Tennessee system. The UTC station will pinpoint weather that’s occurring on campus or is very close and will provide such data as temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall and the amount of lightning.
COVID 19, construction, awards: There was no lack of happenings at UTC in 2020.
Students who must quickly go from in-class to online can use a ‘Zoom Room.’
