Do you know the academic college where you want to study or the major you want to pursue? We have an opportunity that gives you an in-depth experience as a student in that discipline. Campus Connections is an optional academic showcase available during your Campus Visit Program. Throughout the week, UT academic colleges host prospective students and arrange advisor appointments, building tours, or visits they coordinate individually.
Each academic college sets up its own visits. You should work directly with the college you’re interested in to make your arrangements.

We invite you to experience a typical day in the life of an honors student. Students participating in the Host-A-Student Program have the opportunity to attend a class, learn more about your campus interests, and enjoy lunch with a current honors student.
