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.

Went and saw yet another exhibit here at the Ransom. Was fantastic collection of the "Gone with the Wind" before the movie collection. Not to be missed.

The University offers so much.. The campus itself is gorgeous with well-kept, peaceful grounds, museums, libraries, great architecture, fountains and sculptures. 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

The UT campus is breathtaking! All staff portrayed Texas hospitality making it a wonderful visit. We will make this a regular meeting place and look forward to becoming involved in events.

We have Longhorn season tickets (24 years) and go to all the home games. It's an experience not every school offers. Love tailgating and rooting on the home team!

Take a walk or a drive thru. A lot of Austin's identity surrounds this school, so it is a big part of the culture there. If you're going to be in Austin for more than 24 hours, you may as well get familiar with the school. :-)

I have visited the LBJ library, where I spent couple hours. Lots to see and learn. And then I had a nice stroll through this very attractive campus. I have visited the Ransom Center where there was a very informative exhibit on making "Gone with the wind". Also, Blanton museum of art has small but nice collection

We take students all over Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico to tour colleges. UT is the worst host we have experienced! No materials for our students and no advice about applying. We were told to look at the website and print anything we need ourselves. Boo...it turned off one of our Seniors that had UT as her first choice. She... More

The University of Texas at Austin provides a wealth of museums, beautiful architecture, and outstanding sculptures throughout the campus. Some of the museums include the Harry Ransom Center, which houses one of the best photography collections in the world, the Blanton Museum (great exhibits and formidable permanent collection), and the Texas Memorial Museum (natural and cultural artifacts). Plan several days... More
