4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security on campus is great but given that were in a very populous city there is never enough security to make one feel completely secure, but its definatly enough to keep inner peace.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The fact that this is Texas explains why the weather is so bipolar. There is always something that will bother you when your outside, its scorching hot, its humid, its raining, or its to cold, will always be a popular conversation to have while in Texas.

Nightlife: Given that this is Austin were talking, the night life here is outstanding, there is always something to do no matter what your interests are.

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys and girls at the school don't want anything to do with you unless you are attractive and love partying. I always think school work comes first so I couldn't party every night.

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!
