Welcome, 2016 Recruiting Participants:

We are looking forward to meeting you on Wednesday, March 23, and Thursday, March 24, here at The University of Texas at Austin. We will meet you at 4:30 pm in the lobby of the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on campus the afternoon of March 23 and walk with you to the College of Liberal Arts Building (CLA), where you will be warmly welcomed by our faculty and graduate students at a reception in the Julius Glickman Conference Center at 5:00. At 5:30 you will have dinner with faculty and student mentors at Dr Debra Umberson's home. Please bring walking shoes and be prepared for weather, though typically we enjoy temperate 70- to 80-degree weather in March.

Thursday morning (March 24) we will meet in the lobby of the AT&T Center for check-out at 8:00 am. We will walk with you to the Glickman Conference Center in CLA for a taco breakfast at 8:30 and Departmental area presentations until 10:00. Specific work group presentations in Sociology and the Population Research Center will occur from 10:15-11:00. Individual appointments with faculty will occur from 11:00-12:00. We will have lunch from 12:00-1:00, after which individual faculty appointments and more work group presentations will take place. Our program will end early in the afternoon, around 3:00. We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you into our community.

Looking forward to meeting you in March,
