The University's colors are burnt orange and white, and its official song is "The Eyes of Texas".  (http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/print/EE/xee1) Its sports teams are called the Longhorns. The mascot is a Longhorn named Bevo. They compete in the Big Twelve Conference.
One of the University's most visible features is its Main Building  (http://www.utexas.edu/tours/mainbuilding/), a 307 foot tower located in the middle of campus that graces Austin's downtown skyline. It was completed in 1937 and is traditionally lit burnt orange for various occasions  (http://www.utexas.edu/admin/opa/news/02newsreleases/nr_200201/nr_tower020128), such as winning football games and graduation. It also currently houses a carillon of 56 bells, which happens to be the largest in Texas. Songs are played every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 12:50pm local time in addition to the usual pealing of the bells every quarter hour.
The University is also home to the LBJ Library and Museum as well as the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center. The Ransom Center's holdings include one of only 21 remaining complete copies of the Gutenberg Bible[?]  (http://www.utexas.edu/tours/mainbuilding/) worldwide.
