Best Continuing Education program I have seen. They offer the greatest number and widest variety of classes. They have a dedicated building, on-site restaurant, and huge free parking lot. You get to interact with a great variety of interesting students and highly qualified instructors.

Liked the programs offered for prospective students. Disliked the crowds, especially in the science building. Eating places were convenient and easy to get to despite the crowds.

My son was interested in Texas so we visited Austin last Spring. The college tour was well done. You start with the usual recruiting information and meet students. Then you begin to walk the campus and walking you will do. You of course visit the athletic stadiums. Afterwards, you visit classroom areas, dorms and beautiful quads with students all over....

What a beautiful campus! It is fun just to people watch here. Take a stroll down the "drag" (Guadalupe Street) for unique shops and unique people. Many days there are tents set up with locals selling their wares. You can find good prices on fun things here. Continue onto campus to the Student Union building. Inside you will find an... More

There's lots to see and lots of great photo spots at UT. We did the tower tour (requires reservations), and walked all over which can take hours.

Call ahead to make sure there is room on the tour. Student employees are very helpful. The campus is beautiful and you will not regret the walk. Park on The Drag (Guadalupe) if you can find a spot; otherwise, park in the back streets behind Guad...pretty simple usually. Fun shopping and eating on Guadalupe/The Drag. Take the kids and have...

Great university.. Good tour and well coordinated ones. Loved it. Part of university visits around to find place which suites my sons educational as well as social life. Good mixture of tradition and enthusiasm of youth seen on the campus.

It was lovely spring day, and we enjoyed walking around the campus, especially the central area which looks south to the Texas Capital and downtown Austin. The carillon is played by a very creative pianist, and we enjoyed listening to classical as well as modern music.

Clouds of bats. What more could you want? There was also a friendly crowd in attendance. Parking is a bit of a chore though manageable.
