GradFest Open House 2010


Thirty-one admitted prospective Ph.D. students attended this year’s invitation-only GradFest event for the opportunity to discover what makes UTCS unique, explore research areas of interest, meet our faculty and graduate students, and enjoy the famous Austin, Texas lifestyle (consistently ranked in the top 10 U.S. cities to live in).

This year’s event was held February 26-27, 2010. Prospective students were given the opportunity to interact with members of the faculty during a full day of lectures, lab tours and one-on-one’s. After a busy day, prospectives attended the GradFest dinner where they had the opportunity to relax and socialize with UTCS faculty, current grad students and staff. Current grad students organized a variety of social events that highlighted the Austin lifestyle following the dinner.

The event was full of discovery and dialogue, thanks to the participation of faculty, staff and current graduate students.
