College of Natural Sciences FIGs

FIGs in Natural Sciences provide prospective scientists the opportunity to meet one another, learn more about issues facing science in the 21st century, and develop strategies for being successful at UT Austin. There are FIGs for all majors, as well as FIGs for students who have not chosen a major. You will find out at orientation if you have been placed into a FIG. For more information, visit this page.
