The University of Tennessee (also referred to as The University of
Tennessee, Knoxville, UT Knoxville, UTK, or UT) is a public sun- and
land-grant university in Knoxville, Tennessee, United States. Founded in
1794, two years before Tennessee became the 16th state, it is the
flagship campus of the University of Tennessee system, with nine
undergraduate colleges and eleven graduate colleges. It hosts almost
28,000 students from all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries.
In its 2017 universities ranking, U.S. News & World Report ranked UT
103rd among all national universities and 46th among public institutions
of higher learning. Seven alumni have been selected as Rhodes Scholars.
James M. Buchanan, M.S. '41, received the 1986 Nobel Prize in Economics.
UT's ties to nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory, established under UT
President Andrew Holt and continued under the UT–Battelle partnership,
allow for considerable research opportunities for faculty and students.
Also affiliated with the university are the Howard H. Baker, Jr. Center
for Public Policy, the University of Tennessee Anthropological Research
Facility, and the University of Tennessee Arboretum, which occupies 250
acres (100 ha) of nearby Oak Ridge and features hundreds of species of
plants indigenous to the region. The university is a direct partner of
the University of Tennessee Medical Center, which is one of two Level I
trauma centers in East Tennessee. The University of Tennessee is the
only university in the nation to have three presidential papers editing
projects. The university holds collections of the papers of all three
U.S. presidents from Tennessee—Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, and Andrew
Johnson. UT is one of the oldest public universities in the United
States and the oldest secular institution west of the Eastern

Charles Moore, president of the university's athletic association, chose
orange and white for the school colors on April 12, 1889. His
inspiration is said to have come from orange and white daisies which
grew on the Hill. To this day there are still orange and white flowers
grown outside the University Center. Although students confirmed the
colors at a special meeting in 1892, dissatisfaction caused the colors
to be dropped. No other acceptable colors could be agreed on, however,
and the original colors were reinstated a day later. The University of
Tennessee's official colors are UT Orange (Pantone 151), White, and
Smokey Gray (Pantone 426).
