Today is literally “Explore UT” day. Checking out the UT campus in general was bound to make the list at one point or another given all that it has to offer, including the tower, Texas Memorial Stadium and its various museums. But the Explore UT event is something else entirely. It’s the “the biggest open house in Texas.”  It’s a day focused on providing visitors an opportunity to get an in-depth look at life on campus at the university.
