At a school as large as UT, it isn’t hard to find ways to get involved in the community. From service organizations to Greek life to spirit groups, there are plenty of opportunities to engage in service for the community. But did you know that getting involved in the community and helping others can be as easy as attending UT’s 88th annual Round Up and all of its festivities? Well I am here to tell you Round Up IS a way to get involved in the community and support all sorts of philanthropies.
Just by getting a wristband you will be supporting B+ which is a foundation that helps kids fight cancer through assistance, research and advocacy. Wristbands will be available for pick up from Tuesday March 20-Saturday March 24. You can purchase wristbands for $10 at the following locations: Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm at the west mall, COOP, McCombs courtyard or Fat Sal’s, and on Saturday from 11am-1pm at the COOP.
Check out other events that will be happening throughout the week and find ways you and all your friends can get involved in the community this weekend at Round Up.
