A Taste of Gateway Fun

Yesterday and today featured awesome UT faculty, staff and student volunteer FROGs! Opening is going smoothly, as staff and volunteers continue to plug away and deliver excellent customer service. As of 3:30pm today, around 68% of the on-campus student population has arrived on campus. In addition to move-in, there have been a variety of fun and transitional programs put on during Welcome Week.

Last night’s festivities brought UT Rockets the “Taste of Gateway”. This event featured free hair styling by Great Clips, food from Campus Oasis, Jimmy Johns, a VIP shopping and karaoke extravaganza at the UT Bookstore, music from WXUT, and much more! Shout Out to Alexia Hiznay and “the squirrels” for taking home first place in the UT Bookstore’s Karaoke contest, with her jazzy rendition of Adele’s “Chasing Pavements”! Here are a few pictures to recap the event. Enjoy!
