Julia Boorse ’17, a UT junior who graduates in December, does not just give campus tours for Admissions as a Spartan Ambassador or oversee students living on campus as a resident assistant. She’s been hosting a YouTube channel for the last eight years, and is known by her more than 65,800 subscribers as Julhippo.

“I started making videos in 2009, when I was only in eighth grade,” said Boorse. “I didn’t take it very seriously until I got later in high school, and I realized this was something I want to be doing for a long time. It’s not just a hobby.”
