AUSTIN (KXAN) - Thousands of freshmen students at The University of Texas turned out for the annual "Reading Roundup on the Main Mall."

Tuesday morning students had a chance to discuss those books with those faculty members - among them - University President Bill Powers.
UT's freshman class has nearly 8,000 students.
Powers said nearly half of them turned out for Tuesday's event.
