University of Texas – Austin

University of Texas – Austin

Our final stop in Texas was at the sprawling campus of the University of Texas, from which we have 15 UT students staying with us in NYC this summer!

We were grateful to have a bus map to help us get around and see all of the sites. We loved the modern Belo Center for New Media, home of the Department of Advertising & Public Relations, the College of Communication, the School of Journalism, and KUT Public Media Studios (an NPR affiliate).


We were struck by the beauty of historic buildings such as Mary E. Gearing Hall (insert UT Austin 2), home of the School of Human Ecology and the Department of Textiles and Apparel, Nutritional Sciences, and Human Development and Family Sciences.

Of course, we had some incredible food too… at Franklin Barbecue!

Thanks so much again to the kind staffers who met with us and showed us around. Hope to be back again soon!
