2017 Graduation

Texas is still the biggest. Don't think University of Alaska would put on a performance like UT did for their graduates and families. Hook em Horns. Great Job

Even if you do not know someone attending college here, here are my list of things to visit. 1. Astronomy Department, they do public stargazing events in the evening, so check the date you will be there, and see the skies (moon and planets mostly) over Austin. 2. Check dates and times. Harry Ransom Center (Researchibrary, but awesome exhibits )... More

I attended the State HS track meet here. I was able to walk the campus and tour several places. This is absolutely amazing. Very time consuming, but worth it.

Located west of the I-35 and north of the State Capitol the 340-acre campus of the University of Texas at Austin, with LBJ Presidential Library and the famous Darrell K Royal-Texas Stadium, offers an intriguing opportunity to experience a historic college campus that is a self-contained city. We regret that we did not allow sufficient time to walk the campus,... More

It is a charming campus, that evokes nostalgia. The turtle pond was very soothing, could have spent hours observing them.

The tower is prominent and you can see it from the car, but a stroll up the mall from the fountain on MLKing Drive to the tower is a real treat filled with pillars and statues and stately shade trees that add to the experience as you walk up the hill towards the Tower. If you come at the right... More

Worth going to this side of town to walk around the campus. It's huge, and nicely laid out. Can combine with a tour of the capitol.

The University of Texas at Austin campus is beautiful and spread over many acres on the hills north of the Capital Building.

Ever since moving from Chicago to Austin, I have always enjoyed looking and exploring this University. It''s in a perfect spot where downtown is within minutes and there's always something happening!
