Calling all LAH and Humanities students!
The LAH intern team is currently developing enriching programs aimed to further connect current LAH communities, inform students of experiential learning opportunities, and broaden students’ networks and connections with alumni.
Please provide your unique and honest experiences to help enhance the LAH and Humanities career exploration programs here!
We recently created a Slack channel for current LAH students to join and find ways to connect through a virtual community. There are subgroups within Slack dedicated to job opportunities, socials on campus, an advice column regarding aspects of LAH, and a general subsection for chatting with others. We will be adding other channels throughout the year upon request so let Kara Burks or Kayla Sorge (both advisors for the channel) know if there is a group you want to see created!
Thanks and Hook ‘Em! :)

The Fall Undergraduate Research Symposium (FURS) will take place in person on September 23rd, 2023, from 11am to 4:30pm. Undergraduate researchers from UT and across Texas will speak on their research projects in the biological and chemical sciences and may participate in the Science Slam. General sessions will include 8-minute research presentations followed by 2 minutes of questions. Science Slam talks are 3-minute “elevator” talks in which students describe their research targeting a non-scientist/layperson audience. Also, graduate schools from across Texas will be at the event for recruiting!
