UT AMS Introduces Students to the Fun of American Studies at Explore UT

On March 2nd, students, parents, teachers and community members from across the state came to campus for Explore UT, an annual event that invites Texans to experience the university and encourages elementary through high school students to pursue higher education. Despite the cold, rainy weather, members of the UT AMS community had a blast introducing the next generation to the exciting world of American Studies.

Thank you to all the organizers and volunteers who made this such a successful (and fun!) event.
