Finest Moonlight Prowl: Jim Nicar's Free Friday Night Tours of the UT Campus

Bullet wounds in the George Washington statue, the final resting place of UT's first mascot, and tales of history, romance, and protest fill professor Jim Nicar's unofficial tours of the university campus. The gregarious lecturer presents a side of the school that you won't find in history books. It's like hearing the family history from a favorite uncle. The history tours are held on alternating weekends in the spring. Nicar also gives a UT architecture tour, called Sunday Stroll, in the spring. Sign up early at his e-mail address.
