UTEP welcomes students with events during the ‘Miner Welcome Week’ – The Prospector
A tradition that has existed for a few years, the week of reception of minors embraces the start of the semester to come, allowing students to participate in several events from August 18. From social activities to a job show, this welcoming custom allows everyone to come together.
To start the welcome tradition, the UTEP launched the reception day of the new students of this semester on August 18, when all new students will move into their dormitories. The following three days brought the students back to move, accompanied by a board game evening, a craft and time evening to locate their lessons on the campus.
The gold rush in western Texas was to start at 7 p.m. on August 22. This traditional evening aimed to raise students in suspense for the next fall semester. Unfortunately, due to bad weather, the event was postponed and took place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday August 23 at Centennial Plaza.
The Get Involved & Wellbeing Fair lounge is at 10 a.m. on August 24 and 25. This event will host a variety of organizations, programs and opportunities so that minors get more involved on campus. A large -scale table fair over two days informs students who wish to be part of the life of the UTEP campus among the multitude of options.
To launch the Fall Football season this semester, miners will face the University of Northern Texas during the “915 night” match at 7 pm on August 27 at Sun Bowl Stadium.
Then on the event calendar is a job show. The “Work @ utep Job Fair” will take place in Leech Grove from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 31 and September 1. For more information on the fair, visit utep.edu/stitude-ffairs/careers/
The flagship event will be Minerpalooza, an utep custom that has been making the headlines for decades. Once again, the festival will take place outside the Sun Bowl on Glory Road on September 2. The winning groups of the Battle of the Bands of the UTEP, as well as other local music groups, will perform during this Festival Viete several decades. The headliner will be Tequila Rock Revolution.
UTEP is sure to welcome all students again with fun fairs, activities and opportunities to get involved. For more information, visit Minetracker.utep.edu.
