3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Small house but I am close to campus and the bus route.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is so much to do in Austin and the people living here are awesome!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A wide array of food that is diverse and tasty.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The University of Texas at Austin understands that the student body are adults and can make smart and safe decisions.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I really like the food at the University of Texas at Austin!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live on a budget and the apartment I have in Austin is not the most spacious ,but this experiance allowed me to learn that you do not need many things to be happy.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I learned more here in a semester then in high school. Making at least one friend in a class made it better because I looked forward to class more and had a study buddy. I would still choose UT because of the environment and professors. There were some ups and downs but I gained experience with studying and how to prepare for exams and finals.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are great I loved my chemistry professor with how he taught it and presented the material to a class of 500. It can get confusing while registering for the first time because UT has a lot of options. I prefer lecture compared to online classes. My smallest class was with 20 other students and it was great to get to know them on a personal level but big classes are also good because you can still make friends.

Overall Experience: I've only finished my first year and can say that UT pushes for internships and has job fairs for each college and brings in companies to some of those fairs.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You really can just wear what your comfortable wearing and go to class like that and that's for guys and girls. People hear are hardworking and most I would say have a strong interest in learning, meeting new people and experiencing something new.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus during the day but we are advised to walk in groups whenever possible especially at night. The police call buttons are in good places and we are emailed whenever their a assault or whenever they are looking for someone that commit a crime and was not caught.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The Gregory gym is great, there are tracks and different places to take a run around campus. Their is a lot of school spirit at UT with the burnt orange and the lighting of the tower for when a sports or club wins.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The Drag has options and is close to campus with Austin's Pizza being open 24/7 is good for late night eating. But if you want more variety you'll have to take the bus and if you have a car that's better.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Parking is a big deal on campus due to the number of facility and student drivers outnumbering the parking garages on campus. They tow away vehicles that are not moved during game days.

You can fail a class or get kicked out of UT for cheating on a test of exam.

I forgot the penalties for drug and alcohol use in dorms and never really heard any of my friends using them, but they make us do a alcohol educational module to know the dangers and what to do in certain situations.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Jester is great because of the variety and you can check what they'll have with the online menu. Also the other food options on campus at the Union and SAC are great but they take Bevo Bucks and not Dine-In-Dollars. Your meal plan is for the whole year and you need to spend in wisely. I suggest buying some food at the HEB (which you can get to by bus for free with student id, and it drops you off right in front) so you can get some snacks for class and meals you can make with a microwave for those late nights you will be studying and everything is closed. (even if Wendy's is open late you'll get sick of eating there a lot)

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I got the un-renovated dorm it was still good, but I wished the washing machines would have been fixed. The storage in the room was great and I was able to put all my stuff away. I was just minutes by elevator or stairs to the first floor where the dinning hall was which was really convenient. The people in my hall were nice and our RA had events throughout the year.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are enough cheap restaurants that offer a bang for your buck.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is strict especially when it comes to academics. They like to uphold integrity and honor within the university.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: A lot of the food is fried food so if you want a change, you have to go off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The pros of off-campus housing definitely include a cheaper price to pay. You also have more privacy and freedom to do whatever you want. Depending on where you live, parking can either be a pain or pretty easy. The general rules of safety apply to all areas; don't stay out too late and don't travel alone too late at night.

Party Scene: The parties at UT Austin are usually pretty loud in West Campus. Most people party in West Campus or 6th Street. I don't see a positive impact when it comes to the party scene and student experience. I will often find students coming back to campus barely able to walk and if it's really bad, they might not even be conscious.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
