3 College Sophomore

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses are convenient, assuming they arrive on time. Generally they do, but I have sat around for the ONE Forty Acres Bus to come pick me up and I'd eventually just walk across campus. Public transit off campus takes very long, for example it takes thirty to forty-five minutes to get to Walmart by bus. This is an inconvenience.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Usually available and usually works fine.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: In the little time that I've gone out, the parties were fun

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Though I feel moderately comfortable walking around campus at night, I would appreciate slightly higher security presence on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: As a student at the University of Texas at Austin, I seek to mature not only academically but also culturally. Though I have these desires, the moderately high prices, lacking variety of options, and nutritionally substandard food options that off campus restaurants provide stops me from eating out as often as I'd like.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go to parties

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is really expensive but more convenient than living off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are the best thing about this school.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: It is as reliable as a bus can be. Having a car definitely makes it easier.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a good amount of financial help but I am in need so I probably get more than others.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is pretty much downtown so there are a lot of visitors and homeless people but as long as your careful, it'll be fine

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I personally do not notice drug use but I know it's there.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Internet works but you have to pay for more than the allowance they give you

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options on the Drag depending on what you like.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Depending on the situation, they will handle it differently. But it's all written in the rules so as long as you follow them you're good.

5 College Junior

Most students agree that they have loved their time here at UT, and they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. College is the best time of your life, and I can’t think of a better place to spend it than at the University of Texas. Students get a great education while having an awesome college town with everything at their disposal. Don’t try to graduate early. Enjoy your time at UT—go cheer on the Longhorns at all the home games for all sports: football, basketball, baseball, intramurals. See the amenities that the Forty Acres has to offer—the Harry Ransom Center, go to our libraries and see our more than eight million volumes. Go to Gregory Gym and the Rec Center—you have a free gym membership for four years or more—use it.

I came to UT convinced that I was going to transfer to a school in California in the spring. I spent two days here before school started and I never wanted to leave, even to go home and visit my parents and high school friends! I couldn’t leave because I was always afraid that I would miss something because there was always something exciting going on. If you are worried about the fact that UT is so big, don’t. All you have to do is find your niche, and everything else should fall into place. You can find it within your dorm, apartment, organization, fraternity, sorority, or classmates. Although, at times, it may seem overwhelming, UT is not nearly as big as it sounds. All you have to do is make friends, which you will, and the campus will seem infinitely smaller. Come join us!
