While the stadium is not open to the public except on game days, there are certain areas from which you can see parts of the stadium, stands, scoreboard, etc. Comparable to a large Big 10 or SEC stadium.

Its hard to find the sleepy campus I first knew in 1965 but the new place is amazing. Make a reservation for the Tower, visit the Blanton or the Ransom--learn something. Attend a sporting event. It truly is a university of the First Class!

We were lucky enough to tour the athletic buildings, some classrooms and the art center, all very interesting and educational! On certain days there are stadium tours, but we were not there on the right day, check ahead if you want to go.

After being around the attitudes of UT grads, I was expecting this campus to be really amazing. It was pretty average. We went through the law school just to check it out and were not impressed. Boomer Sooner.
