Serving the State

At UT Austin, we like to say that what starts here changes the world. That change begins in Texas. Every year, our researchers help make Texans safer, smarter, and more economically secure. Every day, Longhorns help make Texas a beacon of opportunity for the country and the world. These stories, drawn from across the Forty Acres, are just a sample of the many ways UT Austin students, faculty, staff and alumni serve the state.

Texas History and Traditions

You’ll feel the inescapable pull of the UT Austin spirit in a million ways. For some, it’s finding that secret studying spot tucked away in a quiet library full of ancient manuscripts; for others, it’s the roar of the burnt orange crowd as 100,000 voices unify to the words of “The Eyes of Texas.” Whatever the case, our many traditions help to strengthen our community and bind us together as Longhorns — proud, ambitious and determined to change the world.
