4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In a school of 50,000 undergrads, I have still been able to receive a personalized experience

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Personally, I am not involved in Greek Life. That said, I have seen nothing but positivity from those who are in sororities or fraternities. These groups actively do things for the community, which was not something I had expected from my college experience.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our football team is probably the worst on campus, but arguably gets the most attention because we are a Texas university. That said, the University of Texas at Austin really pushes for students to have school spirit. They offer the "Big Ticket", which allows students to attend every sports event for a reasonable price. This feeds into the great school spirit that our university has to offer.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is an incredible public college that simultaneously pushes students to succeed while also encouraging them to express themselves in their own unique ways. Although the college is dubbed the "40 acres" (and it is quite large), the University of Texas at Austin always goes above and beyond to make all Longhorns feel like a family. Events are held daily, really, to not only unite students but to also keep students informed about the other cultures that influence our university.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The nightlife begins as early Thursday with an almost complete mutual unspoken rule of "everyone shut up" by Sunday night. Mon-Wed is professional time.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The week is stressful, and a very common way people unwind, socialize, and explore is with the party scene.

5 College Junior

Academics: There is a diverse range of exciting topics. The classes range from fairly simple yet thorough to difficult yet still engaging.

4 College Junior

Diversity: You will find hippies, rednecks, bubble thumpers, and atheists. It is a diverse ecosystem of mostly tolerant groups with some occasional friction.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: No one will really pressure you, or judge you with whatever you choose to do or not do.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You get what you put in, and this campus has a lot of opportunities for everyone.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas exes have a facility on campus. the pride of being a longhorn is felt by everyone.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: People are shook up because of a recent murder. It was a horrifying event.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: You'll never be late to class, and for the college experience it works.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: When the stories are bad, they are bad, but its the same everywhere else.

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!
