The fall 2017 semester at The University of Texas at El Paso is off and running, and with the first week of classes comes a slew of welcome back activities and events to start the new semester off.

“Miner Welcome,” which offers new and returning students opportunities to become familiar or get reacquainted with the UTEP campus and fellow Miners, kicks of Monday, August 28 with pancakes and inflatables, and culminates Friday, September 1, with Minerpalooza -- UTEP's biggest party of the year.

All events are free for students and staff. Check out the daily schedule of the events below.
