Thank you for joining us for Longhorn Welcome 2021!

Longhorn Welcome is UT’s official welcome for all incoming undergraduate Longhorns. This campus-wide initiative starts just prior to the fall semester featuring Signature Events as well as dozens of other events hosted by various campus partners.

All events are created for new students to meet their peers, gain valuable resources, and celebrate UT’s culture and tradition!
