It was fun to be on campus and see the students milling around. Great college atmosphere! Saw the turtle pond, which was interesting.

The university did a very good job of conducting the fall graduation ceremony. The Irwin center is a great facility for this event.

I wish I was a student again as this campus seemed to attract my attention in a most positive way. You immidiatly got a great feeling as the atmosphere is seond to none. Can´t find a better place for studies.

It was not a long graduation just right. Each speaker seemed to keep his or her time to a minimum. I think that is what the students requested. It definately was a hit with the parents and grandparents.

Now a Senior VP of Marketing for a multinational scientific company. Great MBA program. Would not be here now without it. And love that Longhorn football too.

A nice campus for walking around. Visited Jester, which has a Wendy's on site. I found it a tranquil community. It makes me wish I was back in uni.

Entertainment opportunities are endless from world class lecturers to top-notch sports to star gazing. And if you want to take your time exploring, you could bring a picnic, but there are endless food and drink options on-campus and in... More
