Event Recap: Advising Expo 2017

Congratulations to the Advising Expo Committee (Susan Somers, Rose Mastrangelo, Anne Pugh, Jordyn Harrison, Beth Labate, Diane Larson, Olga Koutseridi, Bri Liu & Jeff Mayo) for a successful reimagining of the annual Advising Expo!

Over 40 departments (representing 13 different schools and colleges) and more than 60 advisors, faculty, and staff participated throughout the week with internal transfer and information sessions, by tabling at the Expo event on February 9 in the Flawn Academic Center, and presenting in one of the 4 themed sessions. Your help in promoting and organizing this event encouraged over 300 students to complete the Advising Expo passport and many more to engage in major, minor, certificate, and career exploration during the Advising Expo week (February 6-10).

From mariachi to roulette, students had fun while learning about the opportunities available to them on campus at the department tables and during the themed sessions. Students participating in the Expo passport program earned free pizza and a UT-themed souvenir cup.

A special thanks to the Advising Expo Committee chairs Susan Somers and Rose Mastrangelo for your leadership and to the Student Success Initiatives (SSI) team, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, and all the wonderful advisors and students who volunteered for their support of the 2017 Advising Expo week.
