College Raptor named UT-Austin the 8th-best urban campus in the U.S. We at Longhorn Humor think it’s #1 and here are 50 reasons why, but here’s what they had to say…
Austin is known as a lively and innovative city with a unique atmosphere. When students aren’t studying at one of UT Austin’s beautiful libraries, they’re enjoying the area’s numerous natural swimming holes or shopping the quirky 2nd Street District. Not to mention Austin’s notorious music and arts scene, which culminates each March in the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival.
