The Texas Longhorns will be singing “The Eyes of Texas” for a long time, it seems.
On Thursday, the UT System Board of Regents said in a statement that the song will remain the university’s official school song. “To be clear, the UT System Board of Regents stands unequivocally and unanimously in support of President Hartzell’s announcement that The Eyes of Texas is, and will remain, the official school song,” Chairman Kevin Eltife said in a statement. “The Eyes of Texas has been UT Austin’s official school song for almost 120 years,” Eltife said in his statement. “It has been performed at most official events — celebratory or solemn — and sung by proud alumni and students for generations as a common bond of the UT family. It is a longstanding symbol of The University’s academic and athletic achievements in its pursuit of excellence.”
