Student Affairs hosts four main events each academic year that welcome, celebrate and promote our students and the liberal arts.

Gone to Liberal Arts

A celebration that welcomes students to campus each August.

Family Weekend 

Families of liberal arts students are invited to campus for breakfast, an open house and mini-classes with faculty members. 

Explore UT

The Biggest Open House in Texas has been held the first Saturday of March since 2001. Like most open houses, it offers an opportunity to come "inside" — in this case, to see the university's literary and art collections, learn about its cutting-edge scientific research, experience its history and traditions and interact with faculty, staff and students. 

Commencement

The College of Liberal Arts hosts nine commencement ceremonies. Students are encouraged to attend the ceremony applicable to their major. The Liberal Arts Joint Ceremony is intended for those majors not represented by a department ceremony. Students with more than one major may choose to attend multiple ceremonies or attend one ceremony and have all of their majors read. All students are also invited to attend the university-wide ceremony.
