Gone to Texas 2016
Discover what's next at our annual welcome celebration for new students on Aug. 23, 2016.

Gone to Texas is more than a celebration — it's also an important rite of passage. As the newest members of the Longhorn community gather together for the first time, each attendee will be asked to pledge to uphold the University Honor Code:

As a student of The University of Texas at Austin, I shall abide by the core values of the University and uphold academic integrity.
