Athletics: This is Texas, football is huge. Gregory gym has great equipment for students to workout, and also offers classes.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: I hate the sorostitutes and frat guys... They aren't really here to learn, they're usually dumb as soup unless its an academic fraternity or sorority, and they are mean.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Don't live in West Campus unless you want to pay ridiculously high rent and constantly hear the frat parties and drunks in the street below. Plus it can be dangerous for young women at night in West Campus. Living off Riverside or Oltorf is way better, the rent is a better value, you get more amenities for your money, and there are shuttles to campus if you don't have a car.

Administration: Administration is good about helping when students have emergencies or disabilities that can affect their academic success.

College Senior

Party Scene: I don't go to many parties.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Always file your FAFSA by the priority deadline, and check the "What I Need to Complete" page on UT Direct regularly. Do whatever it says ASAP to get your aid disbursed in a timely manner. Setting up direct deposit also speeds up disbursement.

Campus Food: Just overpriced, but hey thats college for ya.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I hated living in the dorm because it was way more expensive than living in an apartment but with way less space and amenities. In Kinsolving I was paying roughly $1000 a month to share a small room with another person, share a bathroom with my roommate and our 2 suitemates (who never did their share of cleaning the bathroom) , with no kitchen, no privacy, no space, and no pets allowed.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Some parties are great lots of variety in terms of music. Some parties can get a little overboard but nothing serious.

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!
