Scuba divers find a different world in Central Texas
By Kat Bussey
Daily Texan Staff

  Splash! Drifting deeper, you slip down into darker, cooler water where you see fish darting between the rocks, unafraid of you.
  You, too are unafraid because you can breathe easily like the fish. When you surface from your dive, perhaps half an hour later, you feel peaceful and eager to return to that quiet, floating world.
  This is the three-dimensional world open to those who have been certified to scuba dive.
  “It’s the closest thing to flying on earth,” said Jim Strohm, dive control specialist.
Scuba diving was pioneered by Jacques Cousteau in 1945. The crude Aqualung he invented and manufactured in no way resembles the equipment used today, said Tracey Davenport, advanced open water scuba instructor and 17-year diving veteran.
  Scuba diving is a sport almost anyone can participate in easily, Strohm said. And considering that Central Texas is the third hottest spot in the nation for diving, after California and Florida, it is even more appealing…

Austin-area swimming holes have everything you need this summer

Special to the Daily Texan

  Wondering how to survive the 100-degree heat in Austin this summer? It's easy. Austin and the surrounding Hill Country are famous for their many swimming holes, rivers and lakes.
  Perhaps the most famous swimming spot in town is Barton Springs in Zilker Park. It is open year round due to the fact that its spring-fed water remains at a constant 68 degrees. There is a $1.75 admission charge, but due to its large size, Barton Springs does not generally get uncomfortably crowded. The pool is open from 8  a.m. until 9:45 p.m. every day except Monday and Thursday when it closes at 7:30 p.m.
  There are several swimming holes upstream from Barton Springs along the Barton Creek greenbelt. About a mile upstream is Campbell's Hole, which is accessible from Spyglass Road. Gus Fruth Park, which boasts deep pools as well as white water, is accessible after a rugged hike from Barton Skyway…
      Doing Austin (excerpt from article published in the Daily Texan)
Tourism’s a cure for the summertime blues

  Summer’s here and you’re already bored. After that one class a day, it seems there’s nothing to do except sit around watching game shows and soap operas.
If you’re new in the area, you will find Austin to be an interesting place—for about two weeks. Then the novelty wears off, and you find yourself in the same rut with a lot of other students. But there's a whole world out there that many students never pay attention to.
  You may have noticed that Austin is a haven for tourists. By exploring well-trampled paths, students can find a sure-fire way to beat the summertime blues. Best of all, most of the attractions are free.
  One of the most obvious things to see around town is the state Capitol building. It is conveniently located near campus, so you don’t need a car to get there. If you don't know anything about Texas, you should take the tour offered there. After all, you're at college to learn. Aren't you?…
