Member Spotlight

The ACA Member Spotlight is a chance for ACA members to get to know each other a little better - a glimpse into life before UT and life off campus. You can nominate yourself, your best ACA buddy, or someone you have always wanted to learn more about by completing the Nomination Form. I will reach out to nominees at least 1 week before the next ACA meeting to complete a short interview. I will not force ACA members to participate. 

The member spotlight will be displayed during the announcements portion of the ACA monthly meetings. If you have any questions about the Members Spotlight, you can reach Katie O'Donnell at
