It’s August already, and August in Austin brings more than just some seriously hot weather. August also brings the beginning of the fall semester! Whether you’re returning to school from a summer break, continuing on from summer school, or starting anew this fall, we hope you enjoy the final moments of your break! While you may not be looking forward to having armfuls of books and a mind full of new information, we do hope you are looking forward to connecting with friends and fun times in Austin. We are looking forward to it!
In the next few weeks we’ll be posting info about Welcome Parties and other beginning-of-the-year activities. See you soon!
