In a world where it is impossible to get a human being on the phone, and it takes large portions of hours to navigate Web sites (and this is when you just want to know what time the game starts), the recently reorganized UT Web site is refreshingly concise and simple. For an institution of its size this is no small task. Thousands of events occur each year on the campus, but the university's webmasters do an outstanding job of keeping things current. Even the technically challenged can locate the information they're seeking without trouble. Maps of the location are included with events listings. Considering the size of the campus, which is as large as many mid-sized cities, this is useful. Plus, the site itself looks like a classy book, not a geek's idea of spam-o-rama. News you can really, easily use.
