5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love UT. My classes have been very challenging and rewarding, and the huge variety and diversity of the school is amazing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People really respect UT degrees. Internship fairs are rampant, and the upperclassmen I know in business or engineering already have great prospects. Liberal arts still has terrible prospects, however.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A lot of people feel unsafe after the murder this semester, but I think it's generally a very safe place to be. The increased police presence isn't really reassuring; it actually makes it seem more dangerous. I feel safe, but I think people less privileged don't always.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hated living on campus. It was wayyyyy to expensive for what I got. Tiny shared room, inactive RAs who never enforced rules, neighbors having loud sex all the time. They spend all of the money you pay on the 10 really creepy people who consistently get involved in dorm activities. Such a waste.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I hate Greek life, but it's good for a horrible drinking clique scene. They're exclusive, rude, and all white.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally don't support official collegiate sports, but UT has a really big program. They're very active, and a lot of people love it. I guess that's good?

5 College Freshman

Academics: This will greatly depend on your major. However, I would say that as a whole it's not an easy school. You need to study hard because the school makes it challenging. The library is very popular as you can imagine.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Downtown Austin, and a major university. You're bound to have safety issues. The police are great but it's difficult to monitor everything. As a whole, taking the location and size of the campus into consideration, it's pretty safe.

Campus Housing: The buildings are somewhat old and there are a ton of students. But you kind of expect this going to a school as big as UT.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is huge.. It can be competitive but there are so many fraternities/sororities that you're bound to get into one.

5 College Freshman

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I honestly have never had to use the student services building, but I hear great things. They welcome students with open arms and aren't too expensive.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My major is history and I have had great history professors. They really know their stuff and that's what I really like about UT. As you get older, the classes start getting smaller which is perfect for 1-on-1 with your professor so they get to know you.

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!
