Party on the Plaza

Party on the Plaza (POP) is a welcome-back-to-campus party for the entire UT community. All proceeds collected the day of the event benefit the UT Student Emergency Fund. The Office of the Dean of Students-Student Emergency Services maintains this support fund primarily to help students in emergencies or dire financial straits due to loss of income from tragic or catastrophic events. Since 1999, the Party on the Plaza has donated over $80,000 to the fund and other charitable organizations. Longhorns helping Longhorns. Is there a better cause?!
