Summer is in full swing, and incoming students are getting into a Longhorn State of Mind.
During orientation sessions throughout the summer, incoming students are exploring the Forty Acres, making new friends and registering for classes. These incoming students will join the 51,000 Longhorns on campus, who hail from all 50 U.S. states and 127 countries.
