Explore UT this weekend
Students of all ages are invited to explore the University of Texas at Austin this weekend.

About 95 percent of the schools were classified as Title 1, representing a significant proportion of students from low-socioeconomic-status households. The event takes place from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. March 2 at UT Austin. Contact Tim Green, Office of the Vice President for Research, 512-475-6596 for more information.
