The Fresh Start at UT

Start Fresh

Welcome to Texas

Start the fall semester off right with FREE events and entertainment. You'll have a chance to meet other students, explore student organizations, and have some fun!

Start Fresh Fest

Start Fresh Fest will be hosted on Sunday, August 25, 2013, from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. at Gregory Plaza. Come out with your new classmates to have some fun playing carnival-style games, testing out some inflatable attractions, and using the tickets from these games to win some amazing prizes! This event will also feature live entertainment, including performances by some of UT Austin's most talented musicians. This event is a great way to meet new people and be officially welcomed to the Longhorn family!

Start Fresh Student Organization Fair

The Start Fresh Student Organization Fair is held on Tuesday, August 27, 2013, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at both the Peter T. Flawn Academic Center (FAC) patio and the West Mall. You may have visited with student organizations during the summer orientation BBQ dinner, but UT Austin has over a thousand student organizations. This program is an awesome opportunity for you to connect with student leaders and learn about the incredible work you can take part in this fall! No matter what your interests, we know there will be something there for you!

The Fair will be held on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. on both the Peter T. Flawn Academic Center (FAC) patio and the West Mall.

If your student organization is still interested in participating, please send a representative on the day of the event to the check-in table on the West Mall no earlier than 10 a.m. to get on the waitlist. Any unclaimed table will be assigned to organizations on the waitlist on a first-come, first-serve basis at 10:45 a.m.
