An Experience

Just walking through the campus, you have the beauty of sculptures and architecture. Taking a walk around campus is an experience and treat in itself.

I have a love affair with the public sculpture. They statues of the famous American heroes and sheroes, the public art and the winding walkways are fun to discover. MY favorites are statues are Martin Luther King, Jr and Barbara Jordan but they is something to please every taste and perspective.

the campus is beautiful but lots of homeless on 25th street and around. Guadalupe street is a good shopping street to look at.

The University of Texas at Austin campus is gorgeous. I was there for a conference and enjoyed how it was such a nice campus, but it was in the middle of such a bustling area. It was easy to walk the campus and there are many conveniences located nearby with shopping and dining options close to campus.

The campus, like those of many urban schools, is part of the larg Austin community so you can say in the academic section or wander throughout the area on and "off" campus to get a sens of how enmeshed the school is with the people in Austin. Lots of inexpensive parking around campus or if you are staying in town... More

Attended a swim meet at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center, a spectacular facility. There is construction in the surrounding area, which was frustrating until we got used to it. But our overall experience was very pleasant.

I paid a visit there in summer camp and it is quite literally a city inside Austin. Great atmosphere, and lots of places to see.

You can get an excellent education in the field of your choice with highly rated professors. The spirit of Texas is alive and well on the campus. There are many choices outside of classes to round out your college experience. You will make friends of many diverse people from around Texas, the USA, and the world. As just a visitor,... More
