Off-Campus Housing: They can be expensive, and in some of them utilities are not included.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, I have never encountered any danger

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's not a lot of bad incidents regarding drugs and alcohol. I have heard of three cases, one from drugs and two due to alcohol. No one other than the person taking the drug/alcohol was in harm.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's always so much to do in Austin, whether its going out to parties that are fun and have security or just going to a nice restaurant on the river.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: It's very diverse with people from all over the world. It's amazing the have foreign reigns and everyone else is just so amazingly humble.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus system is the best form of transportation. The downfall is the buses don't stick to their schedule and often run behind creating an unpredictable schedule.

Athletics: The University of Texas frequently wins national championships. The fans are involved, the alumni association contributes a large amount. And the cheerleaders are the best anywhere!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally feel safe on campus. I would say the biggest crime you hear about is theft - people break into cars that are parked in west campus a lot. Don't drive, take the bus!

4 College Junior

Transportation: You can ride any Austin metro bus for free with a UT student ID, so if you live off campus take the bus instead of driving. If you do drive, parking passes are expensive. It's always going to be difficult to find parking on the street, even if you're willing to pay the meter. Once you're on campus the shuttle system is great! If you're really attached to your car, park it really far away and ride the bus into campus.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: In general the university is very safe you even have a line you can call so people will walk you home!

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather is good all year but summers are a bit hot classes never get cancelled because of the weather here

3 College Junior

Parking: I don't have a car but my friends who do say it's hard to find parking and it's expensive

3 College Junior

Parking: You can buy a pass to park in one of the several garages on campus, or try to find a metered spot (there are several around the perimeter). I usually park off campus along a bus line (I live far from campus), and ride the bus in.

3 College Junior

Majors: I decided to focus on education, which I have sometimes regretted because I miss the intellectual challenge of mathematics and physics. But my career goal is to teach, so in the long run I think it was a reasonable decision.

3 College Junior

Majors: I'm a math phd student studying math ed. There are not many people around that do rigorous research in this area, so I feel very isolated.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are lots of people with lots of backgrounds on campus. You can find anyone or anything you are looking for.

Greek Life: Recruitment on the women's side is rough and based on things that an applicant cannot change about themselves, its not always a personality fit that they are looking for. However it can provide lessons and skills you will take with you throughout your entire adult life.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus police are always visible. The text messages on any high alert are very fast. I feel real safe.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: Policy enforcement of drugs or alcohol on campus is strictly enforced. Their is no peer pressure that I can see.

4 College Student

Athletics: The student involvement high especially for freshmen. Team performance is good and fan support is great as well as school spirit. The athletic facilities look great from the outside.

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!
