The UT to West Tennessee program provides charter buses for students to take from campus to Jackson or Memphis. 108 students left Wednesday afternoon on the buses and will return on Sunday.

"Without this I probably wouldn't have been able to go back," said Fredrick Thompson, a UT freshman from Memphis.
