GradFest Open House 2014


The department hosted prospective Ph.D. students at GradFest 2014, a two-day exploration of UTCS research, resources, and community. Over 30 admitted students attended panel discussions, toured labs, and met with faculty one-on-one. Current graduate students hosted the out-of-towners in their own homes for a real look at life as a UTCS grad student.

This year's event was held February 20-22, 2014. Prospective students were given an overview of the department, got a close-up look at research labs, enjoyed the Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex/Dell Computer Science Hall, and checked out the UT campus. After a busy day, prospectives attended TGIF 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 famous Austin lifestyle (consistently ranked in the top 10 U.S. cities to live in).
