in School

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Welcome week is underway at the University of Tennessee, and hundreds of new freshmen are on campus. Some are leaving home for the first time and and will miss certain family members.

“Kinda miss my dog from home,” said Rory Coll, an incoming freshman from Maryland.

Coll had to leave his own furry friend behind.

He isn’t the only student who misses their pet. Paige Hlad, the graduate assistant for student leadership, organized an event called Dogs and Dogs at one of the residence halls on campus.
