Texas Phanos is a student organization that consists of the most outstanding undergraduate students within the College of Liberal Arts. Members are selected to represent the College in various capacities, including recruiting and fundraising events, assisting with official College activities, and serving as student representatives to alumni and other stakeholders.
Members of Texas Phanos should represent the best of the College of Liberal Arts and its many departments. The responsibilities of members include but are not limited to:
Students who are selected to join Texas Phanos will benefit in numerous ways. For example, through their training and outreach efforts, they will develop valuable networking, leadership, and communication skills. They will meet alumni and other friends of the College who may serve as future network ties.
