False. Sorry to disappoint you but Texas is considered a southern state as defined by the census bureau. In fact, the Confederate States of America was formed by state signatories of South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas.
UT-Austin has a high non-white student population. From 2000 to 2010, Latino enrollment jumped 48 percent to 5,899 students, making up 11.8 percent of the student body. During the same period, black enrollment increased 38 percent to 2,201, or 3.2 percent of the student body, and the Asian population jumped 25 percent to 7,790, about 15 percent of the student body. In 2010, just 48 percent of UT's entering freshman class was white, the lowest percentage in the university's history, according to the UT Office of Information Management and Analysis. The Latino student growth at UT outpaced the 37 percent statewide population growth in that community.
And the school and city is mostly californian.
Out-of-state and international students comprised 9.1% of the undergraduate student body and 20.1% of the total student body, with students from all 50 states and more than 120 foreign countries—most notably, South Korea, followed by the People's Republic of China, India, Mexico and Taiwan.
And your assertion that the city is mostly Californian is just plain WRONG. See the migration map below:
So to put it bluntly, you don't know what you're talking about.
