Austin Alumni Reception 2012


Welcome alumni! As graduates of the college, you hopefully attended most of your classes, relaxed under the big oak trees and spent many a late night preparing for a performance, exhibition, test or term paper. And when you graduated, you helped to lay the road for future generations of artists, scholars, and arts patrons.

Please stay in touch with us often and check the College of Fine Arts site for information about events (including images from those events) and alumni announcements. Your shared successes and challenges will help us to better prepare our next generation of alumni.

You can also learn more about departmental activities by visiting the departments directly: Butler School of Music, Department of Art and Art History, and Department of Theatre and Dance Alumni page.
