  • I visited this campus. I've been to 47 states and traveled internationally visiting international universities. Oddly enough I didn't go to the library while here. I sensed a very strong presence of paranormal activity on the campus. I saw the bronze statue of Shirley Chisholm
  • When I visited UT I had a fantastic time! The campus is very beautiful, the students are nice, and the campus in general has so much to offer! If you for some reason go to Austin I would recommend stopping by!
