Message Box

We are excited to welcome you to the Javelina family and to introduce you to Javelina Pride!

Javelina tradition begins with Hoggie Days, and the excitement of starting your college journey is multiplied by the new friends you make, the staff you meet, the classes you register for, the campus tours you take and the Javelina Pride you’re surrounded by! The activities you will participate in and the people you will meet at Hoggie Days will set the tone for your first semester as a Javelina. It's an event you don’t want to miss!
