Off-Campus Housing: Best location it could be.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I had to go through the CAP program to be admitted into UT Austin, it was a good opportunity but the program definitely has its flaws in regards to transferable courses. It was a very limiting year and perhaps a slight waste of money just for the prestige of becoming a student at UT.

Majors: I am happy with the path I'm going on, I cant wait to see what opportunities I can find. I do have job concerns but hope I can operate independently eventually rather than join an endless search of employers.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's funny, the guys that are obviously in a fraternity aren't all that bad when you encounter them around campus. As individuals many of them seem pleasant and pretty well-rounded, but as soon as you see those guys walk around in a cluster of their own, there's something inherently annoying about them that I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's just that together they give off a really obnoxious persona, but that's mainly the chapters that are all about the prestige because their are also plenty of academic frats on campus that quite friendly overall. The way it works for most fraternity brothers - they either get a fancy apartment right outside of campus or they stay in the "house", which are due for some remodeling if I do say so myself.

Scholarships: In terms of actually applying for financial aid, the process isn't all that difficult. The hassle arrives when trying to get your income information in order, at least when it comes to getting your parents to obtain that paperwork for you. My advice is to try to get all that information set and ready to go as soon as Christmas break is over, considering getting financial aid tends to work on a first come - first serve basis.

Majors: This was a great school to do my undergraduate degree. I enjoyed the diversity on campus, the variety of classes, and even the odd grumpy professor! I definitely would recommend this university. I am currently going to graduate school abroad, and UT is very respected in the world. It has a great ranking and top notch academics.

Majors: The application was normal, it asked the same questions as other 4 year state universities and was pretty easy if long to complete.

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!
