The University Co-Op

The University Co-Op Review

The beating burnt-orange heart of Longhorn Nation is on display at the ultimate showcase of UT sports paraphernalia. You can find burnt-orange-and-Longhorn-logo'd everything at this three-level emporium, from Crocs and dress shirts to bath mats, a full set of luggage, even a $350 pair of Lucchese cowboy boots and a $600 acoustic guitar. An entire room is devoted to children's wear, from the nursery on up. Founded in 1896 and modeled after a similar co-op at Harvard, UT's Co-Op (which offers discounts to faculty, students, and staff) claims to be the largest seller of used textbooks in the country. Even if you have no direct (or indirect) connection to UT, if you're in the neighborhood, do stop in; it's gawk-inducing and unforgettable.
