University officials announced Wednesday morning that the annual kickoff to the school year – Minerpalooza – would be held virtually.
The 30th anniversary of The University of Texas at El Paso’s biggest annual celebration will take place Friday, September 4, 2020.
“We’re excited to add first-of-its-kind elements to the newly designed Minerpalooza,” said Nicole Aguilar, event organizer and director for UTEP’s Student Engagement and Leadership Center.
“We’re creating a completely virtual event to ensure that we can celebrate a new school year in a safe environment. We can’t wait to launch this event in a way the UTEP community has never experienced it.”
Organizers add that with new, first-of-its-kind elements, the event twill bring Miner Nation together for one special evening.
“We’re creating a completely virtual event to ensure that we can celebrate a new school year in a safe environment,” officials added.
