On May 3, 1984, Michael Dell launched Dell from his #UTAustin  dorm room.

#HookEm , Michael, and happy 32nd birthday, Dell!

In the early days, as he was building an enormous business success almost out of nothing, plenty of people were slow to realize that Michael Dell was going to become one of the giants of the personal computer industry.

Being spanked as a child appears to be linked to a host of long-term behavioral and mental health issues, according to a new report from UT Austin's College of Natural Sciences. 
The more children are spanked, the more likely they are to defy their parents and experience increased anti-social behavior and other difficulties, according to a new meta-analysis of 50 years of research.

I own and run a school in Nigeria and due to the high incidence of children with special needs I applied for a masters in special education. I tried endlessly to communicate with the course coordinator but she never ever replies mails nor pick or return calls. The only time she ever responded to my mail was when i routed it through another person in the department and just that ONCE. I needed to know if it was okay for me to apply but my mails and calls met brick walls. After paying the application fee and going through all the stress of application I was denied. I sent a mail to the same coordinator to find out what went wrong so I can learn what to put in place. It is almost a month now and still no response. It is really disappointing as I held the university in high esteem before now.

Excellent campus environment and students! I like UT so much. It is awesome to have a hike here in the weekend. Have a pic in front of the UT Tower is a nice choice as the end of your journey.

Amazing campus in an around the original "40 Acres". World class education and facilities with a very diverse student population. Great undergrad programs and exemplary masters and doctorate programs. Athletics are another fun pride point with Longhorns all over the world.

I am fascinated in the work being done at the University in relation to the earth's magnetic field. While I am not a scientist - I have discovered that every species of tree is designed to respond to specific properties that exist within the earth's magnetic field. Clearly this is in place to prevent any one species dominating the plant kingdom. I have planted over a million trees in the development of concepts and technology that enables trees to be grown where no one would believe it possible. Even planted in >40 degreeC temperatures, the trees thrive and are NEVER watered, even in this semi-arid region of Australia. The implications are amazing - 70% of the the planet is arid or semi-arid. If scientific accreditation of my findings can be established - we can plant trees under the most incredibly challenging conditions to address climate change. Nobody has a monopoly on intellect, and often it is the chance discovery by a lay person of something monumental that has the most benefit for the world.

One of the best universities in the nation spread across 40+ acres. You have a lot of restaurants to explore inside/just off the campus.
