"I met a lot of engineering student leaders that day not knowing I would get the opportunity to be in their shoes a couple years later."

"I can't believe how many people I met – students, faculty and staff – in one day."

"Being at Gone to Engineering was the first time I was ever around so many people who were like me. ENGINEERS RULE!"

"Gone to Engineering was so much fun because you get to meet TONS of people!"

"It was cool to see so many engineering students who were new to UT like me. It made me feel really glad I was in engineering at UT."

"Meeting student organization leaders gave me great role models while at UT."
