AUSTIN – Students head back to class Wednesday for the start of the fall semester at the University of Texas. Tuesday night, thousands of incoming freshmen gathered for the annual "Gone to Texas" rally.
The “Gone to Texas” rally is a time when incoming freshmen and new students learn about a number of Longhorn traditions.
“I definitely think it's doable. I mean, it's the goal that I am trying to go for so I hope it is,” said Edidiong Umoh, a UT Freshman.
UT reports that currently 52 percent of all students finish in four years. The university has a goal of 70 percent by 2017.
The first day of classes at UT begin Wednesday.
