“I wanted to understand the city—how it works, what makes it special, and why people love it so—and uncover how I fit in. I would describe Experience Austin like an Austin immersion program. I feel connected, informed, engaged—sort of like I am from here or at least have been here a long time. I would recommend it to anyone new to Austin and looking to build a life here.” Marion Martin, Experience Austin 2007, Essential 2009
