On September 12, we held a Meet & Greet networking event for newly arrived sponsored students at UT. New students enjoyed interacting with returning students and forming new connections among their peers. This annual event provides the opportunity for students to meet others in their same academic programs or who share the same sponsor.
Who are sponsored students, you may ask? This unique group of students receives funding, scholarships, or other awards most commonly from a government entity, private company, or organization for the purpose of studying in the United States. Most of these awards are highly competitive and prestigious. This fall, we welcomed over 100 new sponsored students to our campus!
