Greek Life: I am in a sorority and it has been one of the best experiences at UT, but it never stops me from having a lot of friends outside of Greek life.

Academics: Academics are great at UT. Classes are challenging and there is a lot of freedom to take classes outside your major.

Campus Strictness: I've only see people get busted for breaking rules once or twice, and UTPD rarely makes it an issue that extends off campus grounds.

Computers: The Wi-Fi can be spotty in certain areas of campus but is generally okay. The biggest issue is running out of bandwidth regularly and having to buy more each month.

Athletics: I'm not really into athletics.

Weather: Always check the weather when going out. It's a little unpredictable here. Some days you'll be wearing a coat and sweatpants in the morning, but a t-shirt and shorts later on. (Slight exaggeration)

Majors: I'm pretty happy with the computer science program. I'm not sure where my career is going, but I know computer science is a huge field at the moment and I'm not terribly worried about anything.

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!
