The University of Texas at Austin campus

The University of Texas at Austin is the flagship public university of Texas, and one of the best universities in the world. It enrolls more than 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The historic campus has dozens of beautiful, classical buildings in a Spanish-Mediterranean revival style. The primary architects were Cass Gilbert and Paul Cret. Here are some of the most beautiful buildings on campus and their function.

The Main Building, "aka the Tower". It houses the university president, administration, and even a Life Sciences Library. It was designed by Paul Cret in 1937.

Waggener Hall, designed by Paul Cret in 1931. It houses the Departments of Classics and Philosophy, and the Classics library.. This is a good building for those departments! I can't imagine a classics, history, or philosophy department being put in a modern glass-and-steel office building look-alike.

Thanks for the compliments. I thought since I linked the pictures directly from their sources, if people want to know where they came from, they can right click and choose "copy image location".

Sorry, but that's not legit anywhere on the web. SSC is suffering hard from this behavior, since ad companies switch off our ads and we're getting in legal trouble.

So please edit your post and give sources or we'll have to delete it, thank you.
