UTA Day at the Capitol

The first-ever UTA Day at the Capitol left a favorable impression on all who participated in and attended the day's events. From the recognition on both chamber floors to the A Cappella Rise performance in the Capitol rotunda, UTA's presence was felt throughout the day. Students, alumni, and friends of the University visited with their respective representatives and senators to advocate for UTA priorities. The event further strengthened existing congressional relationships and gave UTA an outlet to advance its reputation in Austin. PHOTOS I RECAP VIDEO
