Explore UT Cancelled
With the city’s declaration of a local state of disaster, The University of Texas has decided to cancel Saturday’s Explore UT event out of an abundance of caution. This event is unique in that it brings thousands of out-of-town residents — including many young children — to campus, where they participate in high-touch, interactive, hands-on programs for hours at a time both indoors and outdoors. At this time, there are no plans to reschedule Explore UT 2020.
