Students at the first-gen celebration on Nov. 8
UT Austin is home to more first-generation Longhorns than ever before. Meet two students who share how they’re living the Longhorn life on campus.

Led by Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Soncia Reagins-Lilly, the Division of Student Affairs works with academic partners, staff, parents and student leaders to influence our students in Living the Longhorn Life®. Supported by the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Division’s nine departments, 37 units and 39 facilities offer first-class programs, facilities and services. They include on-campus residence halls, apartments and their dining facilities, medical and mental health services, new student orientation, recreational sports and two university unions. The Division employs 1,500 students annually and supports 1,000 student organizations, student emergency and veteran services, and leadership programs.
