“Interesting and easy to drive through”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

If you are a college football fan, or enjoy seeing universities, the campus is well laid out for a drive through. It's almost impossible to get into the stadium, but there are some observation points that allow a good look. The campus is blended with the city, so you might be unaware you have arrived without a map.

“Nice campus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

It was a nice place, a little dated, but clean and well maintained. Nothing too spectacular.The LBJ presidential Library is on campus and was interesting to visit.

“Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

I want to go to UT at A so I am a bit biased but this area is so eco-friendly and there are so many squirrels everywhere.

“Hook 'Em Horns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We bleed Burnt Orange in Austin, TX. UT's greatest asset is that it's huge and thus can afford all the great equipment and faculty and staff money can buy. That's also it's greatest drawback...too many people in one location sometimes. But, you get a big bang for your buck (although the State Legislature only gives like 11% of the budget, and the rest is through endowment giving). But, if you're thinking about being a student at UT, please do, but when you finish, LEAVE and get a job somewhere else.
