We visited the Alumni Center for an event. It is a beautiful building and very easy to get to. Walking around the campus gives you a look at many interesting buildings.

Our tour guide around the school was very informative. He encouraged students to strive for their best. It was great to be at a univerity and see students walking to class. Campus was beautiful and we had lunch at Jester Hall where students were able to see what a university meal plan is.

40 acres of walking. I bet you never knew UT had hills. You can blow out a set of tennis shoes a year with the walking. Fantastic place with great history that has not been whitewashed. The rare book room is fantastic.

Best University in the country! Draw back is parking, so be prepared to do a lot of walking or taking the bus to get from one side of the campus to the other side. This place is huge!

When visiting Austin this summer with our girls (10 and 15) we decided to check out the University of Texas campus. They both have aspirations of going to school in California, but hey why not show them a great option closer to home. We had a little trouble finding parking that was not permit parking only, but we figured it... More
