UT Tyler Holds Its Annual Crawfish Boil at Harvey Lake

On Monday, April 14th at The University of Texas at Tyler, the Office of Marketing and Communications hosted its annual Crawfish Boil at Harvey Lake deck, one of the kick-off events for Student Appreciation Week, an event that runs all week (April 14th through 18th).

Despite the cold and rain, hundreds of students began lining up before the actual start time of 11:30 for the lunch. The crew in charge preparing and serving the crawfish began setting up for the event well into the morning, graciously braving the cold weather to provide the students with an excellent free lunch. They cooked hundreds of pounds of crawfish, corn on the cob, and potatoes today, and for that we are extremely grateful.

Hundreds of students were eager to eat, as the line ran from the source of the food all the way to the cashier's office, and even longer after students got out of their morning class to make their way to the food. The 10+ minute wait was well worth it, because the crawfish was ridiculously good. Definitely worth going next year if you missed it on Monday!

Go to more events this week for Student Appreciation Week! There will be events on campus, such as movie nights and sports games all week, as well as many more fun things to do, all for the students at UTT!
