On Wednesday, September 3, the International Scholar Services team hosted the first scholar social hour of the Fall 2014 semester. What a fun opportunity to meet a diverse group of scholars! About 20 scholars attended the event and our conversations ranged from Texas politics to favorite books and authors. Conversation was aided by the delicious pizza provided by the International Office. I had a great evening learning how passionate all of our scholars are about their studies and research. A few scholars who are already comfortable with the Austin area gave tips on places to eat, places to explore, and places for visiting guests to stay. Since I’m a newcomer to Austin myself, I plan to take advantage of the great advice I heard on Wednesday.
If you are …
- Looking for a fun way to meet other scholars here at UT;
- Looking for tips and recommendations about the Austin area and lifestyle; and
- Wanting to enjoy some free pizza
… look no further than the monthly Scholar Social Hour! Make your way to our next social hour on Wednesday, October 1st from 5:30-7pm. Scholar social hours are held the first Wednesday of every month, and all social hours take place at Austin’s Pizza located at 2324 Guadalupe. Families are more than welcome to come. We look forward to seeing more new and returning faces come out and join us for a terrific evening!
