Computers: UT cares about maintaining the tech and does so very well, most of the time. The PCL is often very crowded and noisy at times, I found another computer lab where one doesn't need to wait was MUCH quieter. UT has the labs, it is just a matter of finding them.

Off-Campus Dining: While on campus dining might seem somewhat constricted to Taco Bell, Wendy's, and Zen, there are so many choices off campus that by far make up for the shortfall.

Facilities: There are no shortage of trees on campus which can be very nice. but sometimes I feel that the campus could have been planned out better since I see many a dirt trail to get to places that are more convenient than the sidewalk.

Facilities: Although UT has a lot of money they have no idea what to do with, some facilities are vastly outdated. Newer buildings have the latest tech, which is awesome, but I wish that UT would update as well as build new buildings.

Transportation: Capital Metro, Austin's Public Transit service, is great for getting around town most of the time. UT students, at least at the time this review is being written, get to ride the buses for free making it a very inexpensive way to see the town. sometimes the operators can be a little off on timing and can arrive a bit too early or be very mean and not let you on after closing the doors at a stop, but overall it is quite a pleasant experience.

College Freshman

Greek Life: While not in a frat myself, I did have the opportunity to rush one. I will say that many frats are quite picky as to who they will allow in. Just be yourself, frats are for some people but not for others.

Weather: In the winter, temperatures are moderate. In fact, if you are from the Northeast or North Dakota, Austin winters can feel very nice at times. However, the summers can be brutal. While not as bad as Houston at high noon, the temperatures can be around 100 F for days or even weeks straight. Be sure to stay hydrated.

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!
