The suspect accused of stabbing four people Monday near Gregory Gym on UT campus may have been "suffering from mental health issues," UT Police Chief David Carter said.

Kendrex White, a 21-year-old junior, has been booked on a charge of murder in the death of first-year student Harrison Brown. He faces additional assault charges for the stabbing of three others. As of Tuesday morning, one of those victims was still in the hospital, UT President Greg Fenves said.

The United States officially entered World War I 100 years ago, Thursday. While the fighting took place overseas, the war’s impact was far flung, much of it striking right here in Texas.

From Texas Standard:

A new survey reports that 15 percent of undergraduate women at the University of Texas at Austin say they’ve been raped. The survey, conducted by the university’s School of Social Work’s Institute on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, is the most comprehensive of its kind ever done. The survey polled 28,000 students during the 2015 academic year.

From the Texas Tribune: The Texas Longhorns' old football coach has a new job. That's good news for him, and it's even better news for budget-conscious University of Texas at Austin.

The University of South Florida announced Sunday that Charlie Strong, who was fired by UT-Austin at the end of this season with two years left on his contract, will be the school's new football coach. That means UT-Austin will hold on to some of the millions of dollars that it still owes him.

Tom Herman is coming back to the 40 Acres, this time as Head Coach of the Longhorns football team. The announcement from University of Texas Athletics Director Mike Perrin came just hours after the news that Charlie Strong had been dismissed from the head coach job following three losing seasons.
