4 College Student

Party Scene: many parties, but I just take few of them, because i don't like social activities sometimes.

4 College Student

Party Scene: I don't think party scene has the positive impact, because the nightlife must influence students' studying.

4 College Student

Academics: I think all my professors take the efforts to teach us.

5 College Student

Diversity: I like the atmosphere that people always accept others who are different with them.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: I have not hear about which of my friend is using drugs.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I think my university is safe enough except when I saw some homeless people at Gua Street.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I love the professor who teach us clearly by using ppt or other assistance, because sometimes I cannot hear professor with my poorly English. So, if professor teach us only by saying, I always be confusing.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I never been to the career center/services on campus, so I think I don't should answer this question.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I went to my friend's dorm once, and I don't like it cause it's so narrow, and four people have only one bathroom. It is also inconvenient.

4 College Student

Greek Life: There are many interesting and funny things at Greek life. But I do not agree that the Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus very much, because most students have their plans.

5 College Student

Athletics: I know the school team in my university is good at football, but I have only staying four weeks, so I never see any matches.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I heard about the discrimination in USA, but after I have went to Texas and my university, I found that people at there are so friendly that bring me sunshine everyday.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very happy with my choice

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not had any direct confrontations with safety issues myself. However, there are polls about every 100 meters around campus for those that need to contact the police for any given reason. There is also a system set up where two people will walk with you to wherever you need to go at night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My first semester at this university was quite difficult for me, especially since I was homeless the summer before coming to this campus. However, the professors I've had have been surprisingly understanding and were concerned for my well-being.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school offers a host of opportunities for those that actively seek them. Being a Longhorn is no small matter, and it elevates you to a respected status when you work for it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My experience with on-campus housing is quite average. One thing about this living situation is that you have to find somewhere else to stay during the winter break. I suppose richer students have off-campus options or families to go back to, but I was nearly homeless for the entire month.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I would not have an accurate opinion on this topic since I am not a part of a sorority. However, I am aware that being a part of Greek life definitely opens up some unique opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: UT is known for being a big player in football. A large portion of the university's endowments are dedicated to the sport.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is a beautiful campus with a vibrant student body that quite literally gives life to the city of Austin. However, the undergraduate experience is not as goal-oriented as I would have hoped, and many students gravitate to the party atmosphere of the city.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are extremely difficult and there is very little flexibility to change your major. Overall it's a good envrionment. My advice would be to reach out for help as quickly as possible

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Relatively safe, but there was one night that a "jogger" ran past me. Five seconds later, police came right by me. This was right outside my dorm. Nobody's been killed on campus yet though.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's pretty good for what I'm going for (medical school). Being in Austin, there are alot of opportunities provided that you go look for them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly have no idea, as I am dead set on going to medical school after undergraduate

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Meh I would do it for the "dorm experience', but move out asap

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!
