It’s that time of year again. Thousands of new and returning Longhorns will soon flock to the Forty Acres to start fall classes.
About 200 local students, family members, and alumni attended the seventh-annual send-off event. This year’s send-off took place at the El Paso Admissions Center, which opened just over a year ago. According to chapter president George White, BA ’81, Life Member, attendance has doubled from previous years.
To show future students what a degree from UT can offer, keynote speaker and attorney Steve Raney, BBA ’87, JD ’90, MBA ’92, Life Member, spoke about his accomplishments. A recent graduate and a current student also gave their insights on campus life.
“Having the new students hear others share their personal experiences with Texas really showed all that a degree from The University of Texas can do for them,” White says.
Students got a taste of some Longhorn traditions, too. At an open-pit barbecue, new students learned to sing “Texas Fight” just in time for football season.
