UT has a bit of everything--huge libraries, amazing art and science museums, lovely architecture, and heart-thumping sports teams. Trying to give a highlight list is tough, but here goes: Main Building (UT Tower). Take a tour to the top. Royal Memorial Stadium. Catch a UT football game. Texas Memorial Museum. Dinosaurs!

Great university, so large, yet so organized. hear so many great things about this university and all the great teaching and research they do. Love that they have lots of churches on campus, so much history, the LBJ Library, and the faculty club by their hotel has a wonderful buffet at lunch, all very nice!

University of Texas has a lot to see, with a lot of the buildings being somewhat far from each other. This is a pretty university and good to see, but it is much more fun to see the surrounding businesses directed at students.

I love the University of Texas. Again the dullness in racism releases a dark mark against them but change is coming and believe it or not they just signed their first Coach of color so I'm glowing in the bliss

From Louisiana visiting UT campus for open house and the experience was very positive. Great school, beautiful campus and love the Longhorn band! If daughter is accepted, this IS where she will go! Thanks for a great, memorable weekend UT.

the austin's university of texas campus gives you a young feeling when you see it from the beginning. all those kids running around looking busy... the main front lawn looks beautiful with the fountain and the tower at the back. we couldn't go up the tower because ut was closed. you can check the visiting hours at the visitor center...

Even though it's a big university it doesn't seem too big. It's a beautiful campus in the middle of Austin. We were there during the middle of the day while classes were going and we were wandering around with our map. We stopped several random students for direction help and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
