The Archer Center Spotlight: August 2015

The Fall 2015 Archer Fellows pose for a group picture during their welcome week festivities.

Fall 2015 Archer Fellows Ready to Take on D.C.

The Fall 2015 Archer Fellows arrived in the nation's capital on August 24 and have already hit the ground running with activities ranging from a welcome dinner to the famous Archer Center scavenger hunt. These 42 undergraduate students from across the UT System make up our largest cohort of Archer Fellows to date, and we know they have an exciting semester ahead of them! Earlier this month, we bid farewell to the Summer 2015 Graduate Fellows, pictured below at their graduation ceremony at The Archer Center.

New Archer Fellow Alumni Association Board Selected

August marked the beginning of new leadership for the AFAA. The 2015 - 2016 AFAA Board members will serve through July 31, 2016. "I am excited about the talent and energy that has been added to the AFAA Board for the 2015 - 2016 term. We have a lot of work to do to meet the needs of our growing alumni base, and I look forward to leading this effort and these dedicated board members over the next year," said AFAA president Todd Hill.
