Longhorn Creatives Virtual Open House

2020 marked the year for our inaugural Longhorn Creatives Virtual Open House!

Prospective undergraduates were invited to join us for a week of virtual events to empower them to get to know us like never before. They were able to meet current students, faculty and key staff members as they learned about the college, its departments, schools and programs, tips for applying, resources for career development and entrepreneurship, and initiatives to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. 

Sessions were available throughout the week, and students were encouraged to register for any and all that sparked their interest in learning more about the College of Fine Arts.
