5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had solely positive experiences with having professors and advisors who actually care about my work. It's pricey to live in Austin and go to school here, but I'm here learning what I care about and have great folks to surround me, which is what really matters.

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is a great place to learn from the best professors, establish connections to the real world, and make lifelong friends. As a student in the College of Natural Sciences, I am offered many opportunities to participate in research alongside professors who practice what they teach and make it applicable to the real world.

Overall Experience: My first year at The University of Texas at Austin has been the best year of my life. I learned how to live on my own, meet new people, open my circle and expand outside of my comfort zone. My professors care deeply for every student, no matter how large or small the class size. My university has felt like home from the minute I stepped on campus.

Overall Experience: Perhaps being in the honors community has given me the added feel of a small school, but I have yet to feel swallowed in the crowd of UT. Rather, I love how large it is, as the size has afforded me excellent research opportunities in my field and an extensive selection of classes, majors and people. I love this school, and the city of Austin is very possibly the best place to be during my undergraduate years.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Growing up, I only dreamed about attending The University of Texas at Austin. I was raised in a household that bled (and still bleeds) burnt orange. As a little girl and all throughout middle school, my parents would take me to volleyball games where I would only dream about someday playing as a part of the team. Although that dream did not come true, I was blessed with the opportunity to continue my education at one of the top business schools in America. I am not only challenging myself every day, but growing as an individual. My classmates push me to study harder, while my best friends push me to have a social life. I joined a prestigious spirit and service organization my first semester on campus, which has been the best decision I could have made since coming to college. Not only did I meet my roommates and best friends, but also found a group of girls that I know I will be always be able to count on. Although my first two years of college have been a full on rollercoaster, I would not change a thing.

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin has been amazing - from its food and music, students and community, to its academics and professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been great. I have made many new friends, learned a lot in my first year of school, and cannot wait for more. I am a fan of sports so I support our teams as much as I can. My school is unique because it is so diverse I learn about so many new cultures and even learn new things about some cultures I am already familiar with. Although it is not home and I do not know as many people as I wish I do, I am meeting new people and learning so many new things.

Overall Experience: I love the closeness there is on campus between the students and between the students and professors.

Overall Experience: Everyone here is supportive and caring of what your interests are. No matter who you are, you will find a place to fit in. I love the fact UT at Austin is a very big campus with a huge student body. This allows you to meet new people everyday and the diversity in people and culture you see here is life changing and something you can't see anywhere else. The professors here have a love for undergraduates, and their work is dedicated to teaching new kids about their subject and why they love it. Austin is a lovely city with many sites to see, things to do, places to eat, and more. UT at Austin has a love for everything, not just football. Here, people love unique and different sports like quidditch, and pay attention to academic and educational achievements accomplished by their fellow longhorns. Overall, I would choose UT at Austin over any other school. If you're looking for a home, come here. Hook 'em!

Overall Experience: My overall experience at the University of Texas in Austin has been great, however, gruesome at times. The professors I have had are so brilliant that it's almost intimidating to sit in a room and be taught by them. No matter how hard the school work can be, I am always reminded how fortunate I am to study at this institution because of how many opportunities are consistently showing up in my face. The campus and city is one of the most welcoming I've been too. I can't wait to say I have a bachelor's degree from UT. I am beyond proud of myself, and I should be.

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities to be part of research initiatives and the university has overall great academics.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'll start attending the university this fall, but all of the staff I've had contact with have been wonderful. The academic advisors are very attentive and want me to succeed - I can tell.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UT as a whole is awesome but the college of natural sciences is seriously lacking in student resources and career and major guidance compared to the other colleges on campus. Academic advisors have difficulty keeping up with students and often seem confused on required courses for science majors. The career advisors offer little assistance to anyone that is not pursing medical or vet school and this bias is present in many aspects of the college. The university itself is awesome-great team spirit, atmosphere, resources to connect with other students. But as far as the college of natural sciences goes the curriculum itself is great but the support system for students needs improvement.

Overall Experience: UT is great for academics and location but I've grown accustomed to smaller schools. The student body is huge and population isn't as diverse as I had been used to so it takes some settling in. In the end, we're one of the best public schools in the nation and my business school is ranked so high for a reason. There is no better place to get such a great education than UT. #hookem

Overall Experience: My experience at my school has been mostly satisfactory. The campus is clean and easily accessible and the other students are nice and friendly. However, the classes are difficult, but there are many resource available resources on campus to give students the tools they need to succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT Austin is located in an amazing city. Austin is a growing city with so much to offer from a hip music scene (ACL) to neat outdoor venues like Zilker Park and multiple lakes. From an economic and business standpoint, the city is incomparable, and the area is so diverse that virtually anyone will fit in. The University of Texas and its students, located in the midst of the incredible state capital, benefit from all of what Austin has to offer and give back too. Also, people at UT are just happier in general.

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!
