The University of Tennessee Knoxville has a vibrant campus life full of activites for all interests. The Volunteer Spirit runs tried and true through in our chapter. Our members are involved in several aspects of the university, and we’re proud that our members opt to dive into our campus and all it has to offer.
From honor societies and intramural sports to student government and outreach programs, Phi Mu members are proud to play a role in organizations across campus that help our student community thrive.
All Campus Events (ACE)
The ACE Committee hosts several events throughout the year that many UT in which may organizations participate. ACE coordinates campus-wide events that have becoming long-standing UT traditions, including Homecoming, All-Sing and Carnicus. These events are a huge part of Phi Mu each year, and we enjoy pairing up with other chapters to compete for the ACE cup!
Volthon is an event that takes place each spring on the University of Tennessee’s campus. The event is dedicated to raising money & awareness for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Phi Mu’s local philanthropy.
Each year, our members enjoy participating in Volthon and supporting to our philanthropy.
