4 College Junior

Computers: Many computers but is better to have our own!

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a great variety here!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Many students join the greek life!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Has its ups and downs!

College Freshman

Computers: I have not tried using the computers on campus because I rely on my own personal laptop. Most students have one.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are a lot of dining halls, but they can be expensive!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I've heard that people do drugs, but I'm not involved in that scene, so I don't know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have't made close friends yet... Classes have been fairly easy.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: All students ride free on city buses which are pretty convenient!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are these emergency poles all around campus. You can press the button and police will come to that location.

College Freshman

Parking: I didn't bring a car down... Parking costs money on campus and off campus. Parallel parking is pretty common... I'd rather take the city bus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I don't really know what to say for this but, I guess it's kind of lenient? You're in college, and they expect you to be in charge of your own life. If you don't show up to class, then that's your problem.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of restaurants on The Drag. These include some chain restaurants but also some local restaurants as well. The food trucks are really good too! Price is above average ranging around $7-13 depending on where you go.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I'm not really sure if other schools have this but we have free access to a lot of the museums and some of them are right on campus!

Examples:
Blanton Museum of Art
Harry Ransom Center
LBJ Library and Museum

4 College Freshman

Facilities: We have a great huge gym on campus called Gregory. A lot of students use it since membership is included in our tuition. Furthermore, you can see students just jogging around campus since we have so many hills and stairs, it's sure to be a workout.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The typical athletic guys and sorority girls wearing oversized T-shirts that cover their shorts so it looks like they're not wearing any shorts. If you love football, great! If not...well. There IS diversity on campus though. You have to look for it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive financial aid, but I did receive a $2000 scholarship per semester, which I am grateful for. It makes me mad that I didn't receive anything for National Merit however.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: If I could describe Austin, I would say, "active, strange, and different." Coming from the suburbs, I found
Austin to be a nice change. There are always events going on like Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Trail of
Lights, etc. The music scene is pretty good as well. If you don't have a car, taking the CapMetro around is doable.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Attending the football games is part of every Saturday in the fall. Our volleyball team is one of the best in the country. Sports are a big deal at UT.

College Freshman

Majors: I am a freshman so I have not had an internship yet but the business school does require all students to have an internship before graduating.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I feel like I am being receiving a great education and will have no issues finding a good when I graduate.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Being a business major at UT is challenging but it comes with a lot of respect and opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors at UT are extremely knowledgeable except the math professors, they often speak little to no English.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I don't ever see the police unless they are breaking up a party or downtown. I don't think I have ever seen an on campus police officer.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus is very convenient but it takes about the same time as walking so I almost always walk unless it is cold or raining.

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!
