Students talking together in a group setting

360 Connections

The 360 Connections program is an opportunity for first-year undergraduate international students to belong to a smaller community within UT Austin with active support from a Texas Global staff member and a student mentor. Approximately 20 international freshmen and transfer students meet weekly to participate in a discussion, chat with a guest speaker, or attend a campus or city excursion. By participating in a 360 Connection, you can start your experience on the Forty Acres with plenty of support.
