Overall Experience: I truly believe that, since UT is a prestigious school, many people value a degree earned here over others simply because they know the effort that it took to get it.

Athletics: While I do not play sports at school so I may not have as much knowledge in this arena, I have been to many games, including varsity games and intramural games and they are all fascinating and fun to be a part of.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have been at the University of Texas at Austin for the past two years and I am entering my third year this fall. My time at UT has been challenging but in the best way. The challenges I have faced have been academically, but I have risen to each challenge with grace and elegance. I think that is what makes the students at UT so great, and that is what makes UT one of the best universities.

Athletics: Certainly not the focal point of the campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT is challenging, but it prepares you for whatever career you choose. So many resources are available on campus to ensure that, if you take advantage of said resources, you will be majorly prepared for post-grad plans. The alumni network is vast and also actively tries to connect students to opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UTPD is very present and helpful on campus. There are lots of emergency call buttons located around campus, which I find reassuring, especially at night. There is also a program called SURE Walk, in which students volunteer to walk you home. Also, the university health services is so helpful, and they offer an extensive list of services.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most dorms are a little older, but the convenience and proximity to classes, the gym, major venues for events, the libraries, and other activities are big plusses for choosing dorm life.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Because of how diverse the campus is, Greek life doesn't dominate the social atmosphere. Greek life is centered around West Campus.

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!
