Behind Mezes Hall stands a grove of oak trees. Under them, the unmarked grave of UT’s first mascot, a pit bull terrier named Pig Bellmont. Now, three students are requesting the University place a marker on the burial spot to honor him.
International students make up 10 percent of the UT population, according to the University’s website. Over winter break, international students choose between returning to their home countries or staying in the United States.
