Renovating Our Space to Renovate Our CultureSeptember 5th, 2013
Welcome back to campus Rockets! If you’ve had a chance to walk through the Student Union you’ll have noticed that construction is underway. We have listened to you and are making changes to improve your student experience. If you haven’t already, now is the time to GET INVOLVED.
Research proves that students who are involved on campus have a more positive experience during college and also have higher grades. The Office of Student Involvement has been moved to SU 3504. The Student Organization Resource Room is currently undergoing renovations. In order to serve our students better, we want to give you updated spaces to learn and work, so that you may improve your organization’s capacity for success. Follow OSI on Facebook to stay current on exciting offerings for your student body. Have you thought about going Greek? Learn more about UT’s wide range of Greek chapters HERE.

As you have been able to see, the 2nd floor Commuter Lounge has been gutted. We will have a new lounge ready and operating in a couple of weeks. Commuter students will be able to charge their electronics, lounge, snack, and lock personal items throughout the day in lockers at no cost. Stay tuned for more information about the newly created Commuter Ambassadors program and other commuter student events. Need a place to live?
