“A Tip of the Hat to…”
… Laurie Alvarado, Housing and Food Service, who received this grateful note from the parent of a new Longhorn after Mooov-In: “Thanks Laurie — you are AWESOME! And my baby longhorn says everyone is SO nice and helpful. She has had a great first week with Mooov-In and athlete orientation, LOVES San Jacinto residence hall and the dining halls and other on-campus food options, and is excited for everything to get fully under way. Thanks again to you and the whole housing department for making it a really pleasant process for us.”
