Overall Experience: My overall experience with my university is amazing. I made new friendships and met new people. What makes my school unique is the fact that it is very diverse. There are many clubs that students can join. Our mascot, the longhorn, is universally known. The classes in this university is rigorous but manageable. If I could choose my school again I would still choose this university because it has opened up many opportunities for me. Yes, it's hard but I believe it will help in preparing me for the real world.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's only the very first day of classes, but I've admired the campus for a good amount of time. The people are so friendly and the networking of people, classes, buses, etc are all so sufficient and welcoming. I can only imagine good times here and hope that my department will fall under that pattern.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE. Not only is Austin an amazing college town, it's also an amazing city! There's lots to do when you aren't studying. The Longhorn spirit is contagious. We LOVE our Longhorn football and alllll the other sports. The academics are all pretty challenging, but isn't that why it's so hard to get in here? I came here for a challenge, a quality education, and a great time. I could never picture myself anywhere else!

Overall Experience: So far, I think UT Austin is a great school. Not only does it provide a great education for a good price (if you're a Texas resident), it also provides a really engaging and fruitful environment. There is a great diversity of students, which allows student to make a wide range of friends as well as learn about different cultures without taking classes. There are a ton of extracurricular activities which make it easy for a student to find their niche. My only problem with UT Austin would be their required core classes. Although I do think that it's important for students to have a base knowledge of certain subjects in their education, I wish they were more geared towards what we could use in the real world. It would make more sense for all students to take a finance class to learn how to be responsible spenders instead of taking biology, a subject that a non-science major will forget the second they leave the final exam. Other than that, I love UT Austin and am glad that I picked this school to attend. And in one year, I will be a proud alumni.

Overall Experience: I think what makes the University of Texas unique is how everyone is equally accepted there. I have never felt left out, especially since growing up as a minority has always made me feel as though I am not an equal to others. I am very excited to call UT my home for the next four years and even more proud of representing this school!

Overall Experience: I haven't found a way to take full advantage of all the things they offer, it makes me mad, they have so many great things and I have to choose a few, it's unfair.

Overall Experience: I think the main reason why I chose to attend this school was because it was the cheapest in tuition. Still, it is going to be difficult to pay.

Overall Experience: All of the experiences and opportunities I've had thus far have molded me into the person I am today and am beyond grateful for the positive and negative moments whilst in school. My education has been very helpful in providing insight towards my interests and future careers. The teachers and peers I've interacted with have strongly impacted my life in ways that would not have happened, were it not for the classes and places I've been.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved the University of Texas at Austin ever since I transferred there. I grew up around Austin, and it was always my dream school. I would never choose to go somewhere (even though I originally began college at University of Houston before transferring) because everyone at UT Austin is so friendly and welcoming. I thoroughly enjoy all of the writing intensive classes, because writing has always been my favorite. One of my favorite experiences has been joining my sorority, Kappa Delta Chi.

Overall Experience: I've had solely positive experiences with having professors and advisors who actually care about my work. It's pricey to live in Austin and go to school here, but I'm here learning what I care about and have great folks to surround me, which is what really matters.

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is a great place to learn from the best professors, establish connections to the real world, and make lifelong friends. As a student in the College of Natural Sciences, I am offered many opportunities to participate in research alongside professors who practice what they teach and make it applicable to the real world.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at The University of Texas at Austin has been the best year of my life. I learned how to live on my own, meet new people, open my circle and expand outside of my comfort zone. My professors care deeply for every student, no matter how large or small the class size. My university has felt like home from the minute I stepped on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Perhaps being in the honors community has given me the added feel of a small school, but I have yet to feel swallowed in the crowd of UT. Rather, I love how large it is, as the size has afforded me excellent research opportunities in my field and an extensive selection of classes, majors and people. I love this school, and the city of Austin is very possibly the best place to be during my undergraduate years.

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!
