Situated in the heart of the University of Texas campus, the tower stands as a proud symbol of the university, as a link to Austin's past, and as a beacon of the school's present day success. Students may grow accustomed to seeing this monolith every day on their way to class, but it is certainly the highlight for tourists when visiting the campus. Escorted tours to the observation deck require advanced reservations at limited hours, but it is all worthwhile for a unique panoramic view of the city that can't be beat.
