I'm All Vol: Robby Veronesi

Robby Veronesi, a twenty-one-year-old student from Westfield, Massachusetts, studying journalism and electronic media, is All Vol. This in-between junior and senior is showing his Vol spirit overseas while studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark.

When he's not following sports, traveling, or taking photos, he is participating in Volunteers for Christ, writing for, and serving as a member of the Student Alumni Associates, just to name a few organizations he's involved with. Hear more of Robby's I'm All Vol story here.

Safety Tip of the Week: UTAlert Problems

"I didn't get the alert."  "It took over an hour."  "I got the e-mail but not the text."  These are common complaints following UTAlert activations.  Most of the time it's an issue of understanding the difference between a UT Safety Notice sent to all and a UTAlert sent to subscribers. Learn more about the two forms of communication with the Safety Tip of the Week.
