The Jackson School of Geosciences is home to the country’s largest academic geosciences community with 150 research scientists and faculty members and the largest combined graduate and undergraduate enrollment of any major earth science program.
Incoming Jackson School freshmen benefit from participating in a First-Year Interest Group (FIG). The support and tools students receive as part of a FIG help them to navigate and succeed at the Jackson School. They make friends with students who share their academic interests, connect with faculty and student affairs professionals, and have a mentor to guide them through their first semester. FIG students develop a sense of community by attending classes, studying, and participating in various activities and events with their mentors and fellow first-years.
Join the Jackson School Class of 2023 Gift campaign by making a contribution to support events and activities that bring first-years together. Great experiences with classmates, whether an outdoor excursion or a pizza party and game night, help build and strengthen friendships and create community among students that can have a lasting positive impact on their university experience.
By giving to the Class of 2023 Gift, you’ll help ensure that another FIG can plan a special event that brings classmates together and adds value to their overall university experience.
And you can double your impact today! The Office of the President has offered to DOUBLE any Class Gift donation up to $30,000. In addition, the first 1,000 graduating Longhorns who give $20.23 or more will receive a commemorative Class of 2023 Tower pin.
