While in Austin, I felt as though it was necessary to see the university campus. I didn't want to park and walk onto campus so I just drove around the see the sights. The famous clock tower is the centerpiece of the campus. Students are walking and biking in all directions heading to and from class. The streets on the... More

The University of Texas always looks more beautiful every day. The grounds improve all of the time. I notice different plant beds improve in design and treatment. Strolling throughout the campus is always fun for me. Majestic fountains, sculptures, and walkways are throughout the campus to take in and enjoy.

Obviously, if you are in Austin, and haven't seen the UT campus, you cannot tell that you saw Austin. Stroll, look take pictures, dine, sip, run, play, stare, bike, jump, etc., etc. These are the things you can do at UT campus. Take a picture at West Mall, stroll through the shaded alleys, visit LBJ Library or Museum of Natural... More

This campus is very cramped because the town has grown up around it and there's not much space. Some of the buildings are ugly 70's non-descript or ugly. Some are nice. Buildings are very close together. The Main Building is very majestic with great presence over the grounds. I'm old enough to remember the tragic shooting from the tower when... More

A visit to this university which is one of the largest in the nation offers many things to do and see. Take in a football game at the huge stadium (during the season and tickets can be hard to get), catch a live music act at the Cactus Cafe or visit the LBJ library and see his famous car. Its...

Don't miss the water fountain on the south side plus it makes fur beautiful photos of the city and tower. It's your typical big 10 university campus.

There's this nice little town down in Baja Oklahoma called Austin! It has a great Bat Bridge as well as some really great places to catch some " Q " along with Southwest Music. Just don't go down I-35 on a Texas FB home game as your transit time will quadruple. Other than that .... take a visit ..... you... More

The clock tower is quite impressive. The football stadium is very cool. The LBJ Library, the outdoor athletic facilities, and the Arts area were very worth seeing too. I really liked talking to some of the students, very nice young people. You will enjoy walking thru the campus.

I always enjoy visiting college campuses, as it can be quite inspirational and energizing. This is a nice and lively campus. The architecture is pretty good, I enjoyed the clock tower and the fountain which dominate central campus. We were there on game day which only made the atmosphere better.
