University Co-op Review
The University Co-op is the official store of the University of Texas, but it isn't a traditional bookstore like those you might see on local college campuses. It is more similar to websites like Fans Edge or Prep Sportswear. The main difference that you'll notice between this site and other stores is that it exclusively sells UT merchandise and memorabilia. If you moved away from Austin and still want to show your team spirit, you'll love all the clothing, hats, key chains and other merchandise for sale online.
Founded in 1896, the store was the brainchild of William J. Battle. Battle worked as a professor at UT and wanted to find a way to help students. He decided to open a bookstore that would sell apparel, textbooks and other merchandise. Though the store was open to everyone, UT students received a discount on everything they bought. The store grew so quickly that it moved from a tiny room on campus to a large storefront on campus. Students and faculty members both worked at the store and put back a portion of the money the shop made to help the community at large. Some of the donations the store made went to the building of a new gym and other facilities on campus.
The University Co-op is now a nonprofit organization that donates money to the school in a number of different ways, including scholarships and financial aid programs that help students. It also grew beyond a single location on the flagship campus in Austin. There are now several University Co-op stores located across the state. It opened its website as a way to help UT fans around the world buy merchandise and memorabilia. The site now offers both domestic and international shipping options.
With a history that dates back more than 100 years, the University Co-op is the ultimate place to buy UT products. The home page of the site makes it easy for you to narrow down your choices. You can shop for products for men, products for women, items for kids, souvenirs, graduation and academic merchandise or Texas pride memorabilia. The Texas shop features items made right in the state and products that let you show your Texas pride. You'll find everything from socks and tee shirts to flags and coffee mugs.
Many of the shopping sections have various categories too. When you shop for souvenirs, you can look for automotive items, outdoor products, home and office supplies or even game day gear. Get a poncho that helps you stay dry on rainy game days, coolers for taking to your next tailgating party, napkins and cups for serving snacks and drinks and even camping chairs to stay comfortable. You can search for items currently on sale, clearance merchandise, best-selling products or the newest arrivals in each section.
The University Co-op is a shop designed for everyone who loves UT. Students and fans take pride in the school, and you can see that pride on display in the BIGGEST Harlem Shake (University of Texas at Austin) Original. This video represents one of the largest groups of people doing the Harlem Shake in the world and garnered more than 10 million views.
