Special

--- Big Orange Big Ideas --- Do you have a Big Idea to share? Now is your chance! The Office of Communications and Marketing will be filming "What's Your Big Idea" videos from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Nov. 27, in the television studio in Communications Building Room 91. Participants are asked to share their ideas in two ways -- first, tell us about your idea in about a minute for a video that will appear on the university's homepage at www.utk.edu; and then tell us about your idea in about twenty seconds for a video that could appear on the jumbotron during the Vols' home basketball games.
