Campus Life 360 Connections

students and staff members from the Leadership and Ethics Institute tabling

Campus Life 360 Connections provide mentorship to help new Longhorns navigate their first year on campus. From connections in residence life to learning leadership through entrepreneurship and Student Government, these connections happen outside the classroom where some of the most valuable experiences take place and students can apply their learning to real world activities.

Each connection is a group of freshmen that meet regularly to help bring their UT Austin experience full circle. Students will build a supportive community where they will gain an understanding of academic integrity, leadership, UT Austin's spirit and traditions, and how to find campus resources.
