Welcome Week 2020 Goes Virtual

Welcome Week 2020 Goes Virtual

Monday, August 24, 2020

To celebrate the start of a new academic year, the Theatre and Dance Undergraduate Advisory Council (UAC) has developed unique online events that will help welcome incoming students to the department. From a game night to virtual Convocation, they are ensuring that our new Longhorns have a chance to make connections and meet their peers as the semester starts. Current students will receive information about how to attend events directly via email.
