Graduate Recruitment Event

March 23-24, 2017

By invitation


Welcome, 2017 Recruiting Participants:

We are looking forward to meeting you on Thursday, March 23, and Friday, March 24, here at The University of Texas at Austin! Please arrive early if you can (between 10 am and 2 pm) and spend the day with a student mentor to experience our graduate community firsthand.

We will walk from the College of Liberal Arts Building (CLA) to the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center at 3:15 on Thursday afternoon to check in and meet all the prospective students by 4:15 in the lobby. We will then walk to Scholz Garten where you will be warmly welcomed by our faculty and graduate students at a reception in the historic biergarten. Please bring walking shoes and be prepared for Texas weather, though typically we enjoy a temperate 70- to 80-degrees in March.

Friday morning we will meet in the lobby of the AT&T Center for check out at 8 am. We will walk with you to the Glickman Conference Center in CLA for a taco breakfast at 8:30 and work group presentations until noon. We will have lunch from 12-1 and then on to 15-minute individual faculty appointments and additional work group meetings in the Sociology Department and the Population Research Center. Our program will end in the afternoon, around 3 pm. Please email Evelyn Porter to RSVP by Friday, February 24. We always enjoy sharing the fair city of Austin and our great community of sociologists, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
