Austin is a beautiful place that we Longhorns like to call home. No other school in the Big 12 lives in as cool as a city as we do. No one is dying to move to Lubbock, Aimes…and they sure as hell don’t want to move to Norman. This is where this handy list of things every Longhorn should do by the time you walk across that stage at graduation. Hook ’em!
Take a swim in Barton Springs
Sure, it’s probably colder than your high school ex-girlfriend, but when it’s 100+ degrees outside, it doesn’t really matter. This is probably the best place to catch up on studying O-chem or that hot Longhorn laying out tanning.
Mag Mud at 3AM
Black beans, queso, avocado, and pico de gallo. 3AM. Wednesday night. Do it (and not just once).
Do the Trudy’s Trifecta Challenge
This is every Longhorn’s rite of passage when they turn 21. Visit all 3 and order your limit of Mexican Martinis (they cut you off at 2 at each restaurant). Do so responsibly of course.
Scarf down breakfast tacos the morning after
Best eaten the morning after hittin’ up the bars on Thursday night, where you may or may not have been kicked out of a bar or two (seriously, don’t be that guy). Our favorites are Torchy’s Tacos, Juan in a Million, Taco Shack, and Taco Deli.
