1 College Senior

Parking: Not So Great – If you have a parking pass, which are pretty expensive ($100+) then you may can get a good parking space if your classes are early in the morning. If your schedule starts after 10am, you'll be lucky to get a good spot (one that isn't across the highway). On game days, forget about it!! There are several other strict rules also, it's just pretty much a nighmare overall.

5 College Senior

Academics: Best Campus Around – I came to the University of Texas because of the diversity the campus offers. No matter what kind of personality you have, there will be someone around that is just like you. There is plenty of school spirit around. The campus is huge and most of the classes are as well, but those that need to be small (such as discussion classes) are just that... small! Professors are top of the line because as our motto says "What Starts Here Changes the World!"

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is tedious but worth it. All should get as early of a start as possible.

5 College Junior

Academics: I like the diverse field and hands on/person to person interaction that comes with corporate comm.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is very accepted here. Everyone is tolerant of another and are encouraged to do so by the staff.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Just OKAY – I've met some guys in class that are very friendly. There's tons of cute guys at the gym. But overall, it seems like a lot of the guys think there too good for the average girls (even if they're average their selves). Especially frat guys.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: I think there needs to be updated computers. However, they are reliable except during testing time, it would be nice if color printing was cheaper also.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at UT is very big and most students are associated in it some way or another.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Off campus housing in Austin is usually very nice. the only downside are the high prices.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Mccombs Student Services – The advisers really know how to help each student individually. They offer plenty of tips on how to truly enhance each student's learning experience.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug Availability – I would say that drug availability on campus is average but that they're pretty easy to get in austin in general.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the University of Texas because of the variety of classes available and the dedication of the professors. I like that there are so many options but I wish it was easier to take classes from other departments. The professors are really awesome, though and obviously dedicated to their subjects.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Characteristics of Students – The University of Texas is one of most diverse schools in the state, as well as country. They come in different shapes and sizes, have different interests, different cultures, beliefs, etc.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It Is Very Important and Quite Competitive. People Have to Be Prepared for the Workload That They Have to Complete, as Well as the Critiques. There Are Numerous Internships and Opportunities That Are Related to Healthcare. The academics of the University of Texas is indeed ranked very high.

4 College Senior

Transportation: Buses Are Convenient – A student at UT can ride the public buses for free, which are constantly running through campus and can take you everywhere. They also offer shuttles to get around the huge campus. The only downside is that after 11 pm, there are no more buses.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Downtown Austin – The nightlife is very vibrant and there's always something to do. Most people like to pre-party on campus and head out Downtown. The school provides free bus shuttle to and from downtown, so it is safer.

4 College Junior

Computers: Never Had an Issue With the Techonology – The computers are always really nice and fast. They are EVERYWHERE on campus too. Copiers and printers run smoothly, and if you ever have trouble with one, someone is always there to help out.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Austin is really the perfect college town. It's the Music Capital of the World, how can it not be? There are concerts going on every night, several places to go dancing, and always something interesting to do. I've never had so much fun in a city of this size.

3 College Junior

Academics: Overall, the academics here are very good. Professors usually know a lot about what they are teaching and are available to meet with after class for extra help. Most of the first 2 years of school here are filled with classes of 200+ students which makes it very difficult to bond with teachers and other classmates, which is the biggest downfall of the school. TA's tend to grade everything, so if you don't get a patient and understanding TA, you're almost out of luck for the semester unless you're able to suck up enough to pull a decent grade. Professors are usually pretty good about picking capable TA's though (however I have had a handful of unhelpful ones).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Don't Know If I'd Settle for Anything Less! UT is great. I've met a rediculous amount of people here, and done things i'd thought i'd never do. People are frendly, and there's never a shortage of things to do. Join a club at UT there's plenty to go around! And student events practiacally every day of the week.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Hot and Windy – You're going to get the full experience of texas. It's 90 in early fall, and temperatures never go below 60. It can get very windy in the city. Ocassionally we get heavy rain, but making it from one end of the campus to the other without getting too wet is easy enough if you cut through the buildings.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Unbeatable Atmosphere, Great Classes – The University of Texas at Austin has an unparalleled atmosphere. The music scene is unbeatable, and there's always something to do any night of the week. The teachers know their business, and while some classes can be head-to-wall hard, you're definately learning something. The computer science department is especially great, constantly keeping students connected with career opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's a Small Small UT World – UT is a mini world unto itself. There are so many different nationalities attending. It's incredible and exciting.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You Can Eat Away Your Life at Austin Restaurants – There are so many fantastic restaurants right off the UT campus. It's almost impossible not to gain more than the freshman 15. Most restaurants also let you use your Bevo bucks.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Be Prepared to Study Your Life Away – The average to get into nursing school at UT is a 3.75! Think about checking out the extension program that UT has with Austin Community College as a way to get some of the harder science classes out of the way!

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!
