It's always fun to visit the campus of UT at Austin. We enjoy walking in the area and taking in such sights as the Bell Tower and the fountains. We always stop at the Co-Op to buy some burnt orange. :)

Following the incomparable University of Virginia, it is along with Cal Berkley tied for the second spot in American state universities. It is large but not without charm and excitement. The Texas Tower is both famous and infamous. Sports are popular and accomplished, spectator opportuities abound year round for mens' and womens' sports teams.

My husband was here on business, so late one afternoon we walked around the campus. Beautiful buildings, awesome football stadium, easy access as it's part of downtown Austin, student union has several cafes for a bite to eat or coffee at Starbucks. We didn't get to tour the entire huge campus, but did enjoy what we did see. If you... More

We took our daughter to UT to see if it might be a fit for her in chemical engineer at the Cockrell School of Engineering, rated #1 in Texas by U.S.News & World Report and #9 in the world (yes, the world). There were over 10,000 applicants last year to the School of Engineering and just over 2500 were accepted.... More
