In 1975, a secret organization known as The Eyes of Texas was founded on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. The Eyes of Texas quickly gained power over the Student Government, secretly controlling university life. In 2008, Lance Kennedy informed students about corruption at the University. The next year, an email was leaked to the campus newspaper revealing the existence of the society and confirming Kennedy's claims. The email revealed that the Eyes were working to promote the administration's initiatives instead of helping the campus be a better home to the thousands of students called Longhorns.
This book is an exciting journey through Kennedy's attempts to thwart the power of The Eyes of Texas and improve the quality of life for the University's students, faculty, and staff. Meticulously researched, this book, The Eyes of Texas, includes excerpts from The Daily Texan and other news sources to highlight the influence of this secretive band of brothers and sisters, and the ongoing attempts to shed light on the activities of The Eyes of Texas and corruption at the University of Texas at Austin.

Eyes of Texas is a Fascinating Look at How Student
Eyes of Texas is a fascinating look at how student government on the college campus can be swayed by the interests of both those serving and seeking political office at the state level. Or is it? Is this just an impression of an overactive, conspiracy theory? Do those seeking Texas state political office really care what is going on, or who is the president at one college or another?
This book sets out a persuasive case for exactly that. Really interesting! Even more so if you are a current student or alumni of University Texas at Austin!!
Jack Chekijian does another fabulous job with narration. I believe his gift is in reading those books that could be considered dry and engaging the listener to continue on.
I received this book in exchange for my review.
