2 College Junior

Parking: Honestly parking is one of the worst things about Austin. It is always a pain to find spots, but you can usually find something. There are always tow trucks on the prowl, so you have to be careful.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Austin is a very liberal city so there are many different styles of people. In general the city is home to what many refer to as hipsters. The sorority girls all dress the same, but I dig it.

Campus Strictness: Most of the dorms on campus are pretty lenient. If you aren't completely obnoxious you will be fine. Usually the worst that would happen is you get a noise complaint.

Transportation: The buses are awesome. Sure they are late sometimes, but a UT id gets students free metro passes that come in handy a lot.

Majors: Super easy, I applied out of HS and got in.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: West campus is outrageously expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It gets really hot in the summer, and when it rains it is miserable. But besides that it's great.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I really have no idea.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They can be rude, obnoxious, cliquey, pretentious, etc. but so can everyone else. I'm not greek and I know some great people in frats or sororities, but I also know some super shitty ones also.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: It's the best. Always something to do. Downtown is great, and west campus is always live too.

Scholarships: Asking questions is the best solution. There are so many people, offices, and buildings here, just try not to be overwhelmed by all of it and keep researching. People are here to help you just have to ask.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are options to park in different places, but are not usually convenient to where you are going.

Computers: I usually use my own laptop, but there is computers available for students that do not have their own. They have wireless network almost everywhere, the only downside is that it can be slow depending on how many other students are using the same wireless connection.

Local Atmosphere: There is many attractions an activities that students can participate in. Whether it's spending your day at the park, paddle boarding, or going to a museum. I love that there is more to do that just college life in Austin and there is so much culture to participate in.

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!
