Overall Experience: Even with their issues, I do love my school and will be Longhorn proud until the day I die. There are a variety of good classes and great professors, just make sure to do your research beforehand. There is so much school spirit and so many different ways of getting involved on campus. Class sizes range: introductory classes can have up to 300 where smaller discussions could be comprised of 15 students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT has some prestige with it, therefore getting degrees from this school hold some weight. Some degrees are more impressive depending on the college you attended but overall UT is not a simple, small school. There should be good chances of getting a job inside and outside of school. The alumni network is huge and pay lots of money towards the school.

Health & Safety: Safety on campus is decent, definitely not the best it could be..especially since the murder of one of our students last semester. Generally, walking around campus feels safe, there are a lot of people, cops are often on patrol, there are police call stations, as well as student organizations that will accompany you home is you feel unsafe. The times to be wary are if you're walking through shaded areas of campus, like on San Jacinto, at night, in West Campus because of Greek-life parties and the homeless population, and on the drag due to the large amount of homeless people. Most are generally non-violent but be careful.

Campus Housing: My dorm wasn't the prettiest dorm on campus, that's either San Jacinto or Duren, but it was still pretty nice. My room was larger than the majority of the rooms at Jester and my roommate and I had no trouble with our space. The only annoying part of my dorm, Moore-Hill, was that I lived on the fourth floor and there was no elevator. The worst part was moving in and out on those stairs. But Moore-Hill had a lot of social events where you got to know people in the dorm.

Greek Life: There are so many different Greek Life options at UT. They throw a lot of parties, including this weekend long party with the majority of the Greek life organizations throw parties and concerts. Non-Greeks sometimes mock Greeks about their constant partying, dares, and outings. But their parties are still fun to go to at times.

Athletics: School spirit at the University of Texas at Austin is insane. We are so proud of our school and will be loyal to the death. Football is a huge part of campus life.

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my school. The competitive nature of the students and staff alike push each person to do their best and succeed. I haven't had many "bad professor" experiences and have thoroughly enjoyed my classes while still being challenged. I am able to get involved by joining a variety of organizations as well as research labs.

Overall Experience: As I previously stated, I think the Graduate School in Cell and Molecular Biology hurts a lot of students, especially the ones who are not at the extreme top of the research game. If you are considering going into the PhD program here, I would strongly advise that you are sure that you are really skillful at doing research. The program in my opinion hurt a lot of people by accepting a wide range of applicants and then only letting the students at the top of the research game do well.

Overall Experience: My review pertains to the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program at The University of Texas at Austin. I had a bad experience there. In my opinion, the program did not care about students' progress or well being, and the program was more focused on obtaining results that could be published. I realize that in most places "getting the job done" has more importance than the well being of the people who are doing the job, but my experience at UT really took this distinction to a new extreme. I would only recommend going into the PhD program here if you are at the very top of the game in terms of doing research and working in philosophy, and you've had a lot of experience in research before enrolling. The Graduate Program accepted these people, as well as many other people, and I saw that people who were not at the extreme top of the game often were kept there in situations that did not benefit them.

Overall Experience: Great class selection and quality, however a bit reluctant to change. In the state, campus carry was also legalized which inherently create a hostile atmosphere.

Athletics: Sports are a big thing at my university and are the center of most traditions and school spirit. Students, however, focus on their studies unimpeded.

Overall Experience: I love the university. It is a little corporate, but the professors feel separate enough that the classes feel truthful and independent as well as accurate and informational.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love studying at the University of Texas at Austin because the campus is so diverse. Everyone where I look I see unique faces and skin tones, and hear multiple languages on my way to class. The campus is also very environmentally friendly, with many recycling bins all around the campus, and encourages students to use alternative transportation to arrive at school. The people on campus are also very tolerant of each other, there are various religious clubs, ethnic clubs, and other clubs that make everyone feel welcome.

Overall Experience: It's a huge, well-rounded school in a huge, well-rounded town. It's UT. You can't really go wrong unless you need a sheltered environment like a small liberal arts college in the middle of nowhere.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There's a huge selection of classes to choose from, each with a knowledgeable professor. Class size generally goes well with what the class is about (more broad topic like math in a big lecture hall while discussion-based in smaller classroom). However, there's a lot of walking involved on this forty acres.

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!
