Hi all. I'm visiting over my Spring Break, which is the exact same as UT's actually (I'm OOS). So, I booked a campus tour for Admitted Students, but I saw that the Natural Science Information Session (it's an hour long from 9:00am to 10:00am) is full all throughout Spring Break. How big of a deal is this?
My family is flying down to UT and staying in a hotel for 4 nights I believe, so it is going to be an expensive trip and I want to absorb everything there is about UT. So, I'm looking for advice on what I should do on a visit and the 'must see' or 'must do' items.
-Tour (great way for me to see if I can picture myself at UT in the fall and if I won't be overwhelmed by the campus)
-I want to talk to an academic adviser about the resources and other things that there are at UT for a 'premed' but I don't know if these offices are open during Spring Break. Are they?
-I will definitely go around the city and down 'The Drag' to get some great food, UT apparel, and get used to the city
-I wanted to see if I could get tickets for a basketball game but all I see on the 14th is 'Longhorn Sportsline with Rick Barnes'. What is that? I also see 'Championship' above that on the schedule...is the Big 12 championship starting very soon or something? (edit: before anyone jumps on me, I know that Rick Barnes is the coach, but what exactly is this event?)
TexasSports.com - Official website of University of Texas Athletics - Texas Longhorns
-By chance, are there any classes going on during Spring Break? I'd like to sit in on a class.
Thanks! Looking for more things to do and info. on whether I can indeed talk to an academic adviser over Spring Break + sit in on a class.
