UXpedition Austin 2022

UXpedition Austin 2022 started out on March 8th when we traveled to Austin Texas. We had 11 students from the Interaction & Design emphasis of the Web Design and Development program. The student leader was Elizabeth Powell and the Professor was Dan Hatch. Additionally we had Grant Flygare Program Director - Student Media & Production who helped organize the travel and student grants.

In Austin the UXpedition had several activities scheduled for the students to network and engage with professionals in the Austin area.
