Q. What are the best ways to find organizations/research opportunities in the Spring semester? Perhaps I am a freshman who didn't want to over-commit or maybe I just transferred or just need to explore something new! What do you suggest? (Nina L.) A: Fortunately for you, UT’s organizations’ recruiting period is semesterly. Nearly every organizations on campus sets-up shop to recruit again in January. Pay attention to those tables shouting at you by Gregory: you could be genuinely interested in what they have to say! Use the power of social media to connect yourself to other students, as well. Organizations want more members, and are constantly advertising themselves. A great online resource to explore is the Dean of Student’s registered organization database.
