The University of Texas at Austin
  • Tower shines orange tonight

    Published: Feb. 27, 2010

    The Tower at The University of Texas at Austin is drenched in burnt orange lights this evening (Feb. 27) in recognition of the men’s swimming and diving team‘s victory Saturday at the Big 12 Championships in College Station, Texas.

    With this win, the Longhorns secure their 31st consecutive conference championship and 14th Big 12 title.

    Per university tradition, the campus landmark is bathed in orange when a university athletics team wins a conference championship.

      Hey, this is great! Is there any way that the super-wonderful and supremely awesome folks who work this site could update us every time the Tower lighting is different than normal? Ironically, Austin is often left in the dark wondering about what's happening when the Tower is orange. We'd love to stay in the Know. ; )
