Capture the Forty Acres
In the fall of each year, Orange Jackets hosts Capture the 40 Acres (CT40A), a university-wide benefit and capture-the-flag tournament. All proceeds go to The Settlement for Children, an Austin help facility for children and teens, with whom Orange Jackets volunteers frequently.
An annual event dedicated to recognizing female leadership and their contributions to the community.
Week of Women
Week of Womem (WoW) began as a Tappee project and quickly turned into an annual tradition. Each spring, Orange Jackets hosts a week of events to honor women centered around the theme of “Inform, Empower, and Celebrate.” Issues concerning body image, workplace inequality, political empowerment of women, sex and sexual assault, women in popular culture, and feminism are all discussed during the week. WoW’s purpose is to educate the university community on issues that affect women and to honor the great women in our society.
