Gone To Texas: University-Wide Welcome to UT Party
Tue, August 26, 2014 • 8:30 PM • The Tower
More than 200 years ago, as adventurers pulled up stakes, seeking a fresh start, three letters chalked on homestead doors revealed their destination. GTT....Gone to Texas!
Gone to Texas is a University-wide program that begins with activities in your specific college or school and concludes by gathering with fellow new students from across the university in front of the Tower for the official program to welcome you and celebrate your arrival.
