Alumni College

Save the date: June 4-7, 2019

Join us for the 2019 Texas Exes Alumni College! For more information email or call 512-840-5651.

For alumni and friends who want a campus learning experience that lets you soak in the best of The University of Texas, we offer Alumni College. This three-day immersion provides unique access to today's top professors; new campus additions, landmarks, and experiences; and timely topics and research. Unlike single-topic programs, we assemble a wide breadth of subjects to stimulate, challenge, and inspire. What's more, Alumni College provides continuing education units (CEU) for attendees meeting an annual requirement. So whether you are a curious thinker, lifelong learner, or CEU-seeker, Alumni College has you covered. 

Registration opens early 2019.
In the meantime, take a look at the 2018 schedule.
