In UTEP History

Students receive the opportunity to vote on new school colors and song. Until 1980, UTEP shared the same colors (orange and white) and song (“The Eyes of Texas”) with U.T. Austin. The school would add royal blue as a school color and adapt Marty Robbin’s ballad, “El Paso” as the new fight song (April 8 1980), College of Mines’ president Wilson H. Elkins approves the awarding of a Bachelor of Music degree (April 9, 1949)  A three-judge federal court denies the request of Texas Western College to remove the Thelma White anti-segregation lawsuit to a higher court, noting that school segregation issues were a “trivial” matter in the wake of Brown v. Board of Education, (April 11 1955), SB 183—the bill approving the creation of a school of mines in El Paso—is signed into law by the governor of Texas and is slated to become effective in 90 days and upon the purchase of the El Paso Military Institute (April 13, 1913).  Learn more in the UTEP Encyclopedia.
