This is another image of the UT Tower in Austin Texas which stand at 307 ft and has become a iconic image located at the center of campus. The tower was orginally built to be a library but eventually became an administration building when it was found to be ineffient. The observation deck on the tower was the site of a mass shooting when Charles Whitman in 1966 blocked the door and started shooting people until he was killed by Austin police. The tower has been reopen but more safety feature are now in place.
