Find-A-Class Campus Tour for Transfer Students

Take some time to find where your classes will be held this fall. Student leaders will take you on a specialized campus tour to help you find where your classes are located. This will be a fun time and will help in familiarizing you with campus. After this event, we will head to the Torch Night, the UT Pep Rally, and New Student Picnic. Make sure to bring a printed copy of your fall course schedule to this event.
