“Hook em’ horns!” Yes, the students at the University of Texas at Austin love their sports, but UT is a fine academic institution as well. Founded in 1883, UT Austin has a fine business school, with high rankings going to the marketing and accounting programs. Notable alumni from the University of Texas include former First Lady Laura Bush, DELL founder and CEO Michael Dell, and seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens.
The Longhorns possess one of the strongest traditions in college athletics, winning more than 30 championships in NCAA competition. The Texas football team has a particularly strong tradition, winning multiple national championships and having multiple Heisman Award winners. Catch a Longhorns game at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, and then stick around during the winter to catch the Texas basketball team in action at the Frank Erwin Center. Austin has a great music scene, and in addition to concert at the Erwin Center, check out venues such as Emo's and Austin Music Hall. If a theatre performance is more your cup of tea, then the Bass Concert Hall is the place for you.
