Longhorn Friday: Show Your True Colors

Aug. 19, 2019

From chanting “Texas! Fight!” in packed stadiums to keeping an eye out for the elusive albino squirrel (and the even more elusive Matthew McConaughey), The University of Texas at Austin has lots of fun traditions everyone can get behind, including one that happens every week: Longhorn Friday.

What is Longhorn Friday?

Longhorn Friday is a way for Longhorns everywhere to show their Texas spirit and unite the UT community around the world, and it’s as simple as wearing burnt orange or the Longhorn silhouette every Friday.

Welcome, Longhorns

Dear Longhorns,

Excitement is building on the Forty Acres as our staff prepare for your arrival to campus. You’ll explore opportunities to become tomorrow’s artists, scientists, athletes, doctors, entrepreneurs, engineers, and more.

You may be worried about the transition to college, and that’s normal. I hope I can reassure you that you’ll find a safe and welcoming place with plenty of helpful resources, beloved traditions, intriguing opportunities, and knowledgeable Longhorns that bring out the best of UT Austin.
