- Friday Night Lights: FNL is a group of student volunteers dedicated to helping UT conserve energy by turning
off lights in academic buildings on Friday nights. In addition to helping to conserve
energy and save money, volunteers have the opportunity to earn service hours that
may be able to be applied to other groups, fraternities, sororities, etc.

of year, different volunteer opportunities are available. During football season,
volunteers can help with the Tailgate Recycling. Starting in January with RecycleMania,
volunteers can help with basketball recycling events, electronic waste events, , and
