Tradition Starts Here!

Longhorn Welcome is UT’s official welcome for all incoming undergraduate Longhorns. This campus-wide initiative starts just prior to the fall term and features Signature Events as well as dozens of other events hosted by various campus partners. Check this website and the Longhorn Welcome app throughout the summer as events are continually added to the schedule.

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