Moving through the University made me want to study there, really. It's a lovely campus, though the scorching heat did make it difficult to hang around for too long. I'd say pass through the campus if you have the time, it's huge and pretty.

I will start by mentioning that I have no bias against the University of Texas and only judged the college by the architecture and culture. Simply put, there was nothing special about the campus which made me appreciate my short visit there. There was nothing overly unique about the campus. Even the football stadium was underwhelming.

Hubby and I like to visit college towns and explore campus areas. This one is lovely and we very much enjoyed seeing the beautiful trees and the clock tower. I don't know much about U of Texas as a school...but it's a great location.

Took some time to do some exploring after visiting the LBJ library. So very glad we did. It's not often you can visit such a nice looking, HUGE property so immersed in Austin downtown!

We drove around when school was out. We were able to get an appreciation for the layout of the University and its proximity to the city as well as other restaurants.

The University of Texas is located in the heart of Austin Just north of the State Capital. A beautiful open campus where the LBJ Presidential building is housed and numerous other museums.

On our way to the Capitol building, we passed through the University. We did a quick drive through around the campus and it was really pretty. You can also park your car and walk through the campus. This is a nice little campus town.
