Moody College of Communication FIGs

Making the transition to University life can be confusing and stressful. The Moody College of Communication aims to ease this transition for students through the First-Year Interest Group Program (FIG). Students who participate in the Moody FIG Program find their freshman year to be informative, enlightening, and fun. Moody FIGs seek to create and foster collaborative student communities formed around majors and shared interests. The curriculum has been specifically designed to support a holistic approach to learning that nurtures lasting connections to peers, faculty, staff, the Moody College and The University of Texas through academic, personal, and social components.
