Off-Campus Housing: Austin has so many places that offer great food at a reasonable price. No matter what kind of food you are into (vegan or meat-lover) you can always find one to your liking. The service is excellent typically anywhere. The food trucks are always open (for the late-night munchies) and offer the best (and cheapest) food. Anywhere in the Austin area, food is available, it is only a matter of choosing where to go.

Off-Campus Dining: The Administration wants to make sure all students have a great college experience whilst following rules. The rules keep students in check but not in a way where it becomes a burden. They do their best at making sure the campus runs smoothly for all students. UT is a top ranked university and is treated as such.

Administration: The UT shuttle buses are a great way to get around campus. If you miss one bus, you can rest assured the next one is soon on its way. The only shuttle bus I know can run pretty late is the one that has to get on I-35. They run late, not because they are not punctual, but because of the traffic.

Scholarships: UT is known for not offering many scholarships, but they do help you find the need you deserve with scholarship opportunities. The cost of attending and living in UT is fairly priced because you get what you pay for. The tuition is a lot cheaper than that of a private school whilst still receiving the greatest education.

Party Scene: I do not know many off-campus party scenes, but I do know on-campus party scenes are great. The Rush parties and Round-Up parties are very fun and excellent time to be social and stress-free. These parties usually happen in West Campus, everyone here is ready to have fun and welcome anyone!

Campus Food: The food cafes are convenient when you are limited with time. It is easy to fit eating lunch between classes because there are many places around campus. The meal plan provides us with money to eat at different locations, which is great because it allows us to have a variety of options - both healthy and delicious (when we deserve to eat a little less healthy after a long day of studying).

Campus Housing: Living on campus in dorm rooms is very convenient. It is close to all my classes and it is easy to attend local meetings/events. I must admit that it is not spacious, and it costs a lot of money. However, the social atmosphere is great because you meet new people - some that may even become your best friends. The staff keeps it very clean and they are fairly quick at responding to maintenance requests.

Off-Campus Housing: It's pretty easy to find a nice apartment near to UT if you're willing to pay the price. Most nice 2-bedroom apartments go for about $1000 per month per person.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good restaurants near to UT. My personal favorites are Pluckers, Dirty Martin's, and Barley Bean.

Administration: UT has a really nice amnesty policy when it comes to alcohol. If you call 911 to help out a friend who has had too much to drink, as long as you cooperate with EMS then neither you or the friend get in trouble with the school.

Scholarships: I was able to receive a scholarship, but I know a lot of people who applied and didn't get one. UT has a reputation for not giving out any financial aid, but at least the cost of in-state tuition is pretty low.

Party Scene: UT is overall a school with fun, social people who love to party-just walk around in West Campus at night on the weekends and you'll see for yourself.

Campus Food: The dorm foods are okay. Kinsolving is the best because it's a buffet and you don't have to pay for each item like at JCL. Overall, the best foods are the restaurants in the Union and the SAC.

Campus Housing: I lived in Kinsolving my freshman year. It was nice and quiet and the rooms had a lot of storage space but there wasn't much of a social atmosphere and I didn't meet very many other people who lived there.

Local Area: There are so many fun and free activities to do in Austin and that is why I love it so much. There is Zilker Park, multiple hiking trails, the lake, the river, Barton Spring ( a natural swimming spring), and downtown.

Health & Safety: UT can make safety on campus more of a priority by adding more blue help boxes around campus and a lot more lighting. I think it would be a great idea to have campus police patrolling at all hours of the night since a lot of students walk home late from the library.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
