Campus Quality: UT is in a wonderful location, smack dab in the middle of a restaurants and parks and close enough to down town that you can take a walk to the capital on one of our many beautiful days. There's always something to do, the people are friendly, and campus comes equipped with a beautiful gym, it's own bowling alley, regular free movie screenings, etc.

Drug Safety: While Texas students can still succeed if they make a personal decision to do so, there are a lot of bad decisions being made on any given night. I see drunk people stumbling back to their dorms regularly, and I'm pretty sure some of the homeless people who hang out on the drag are drug dealers.

Academics: As a member of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, I feel like one of the luckiest students in America. It's a spectacular program with some of the best scholars in the field. The work load is challenging, even excessive at times, but you'll learn more than you could ever dream of.

5 College Senior

Academics: The University of Texas at Austin is a world class research University boasting a staff of well known professors who are experts in their fields. That being said, you're only going to get out of them what you put in. Classes are only a small part of the college experience. Get to know your professors and you'll go farther than you ever thought possible.

Technology: Easy to use, find, print, etc. Wifi everywhere so a personal computer is fine too.

Weather: Austin is crazy. One day it can be cold, the next day it will be up to 90 degrees. I definitely love it though because I get to wear all this different types of clothing.

Majors: I am currently a nursing major. Although it is hard, I love it. Thankfully I didn't' have to change my major at all while being in college, but there is always that option if you don't feel convinced that your chosen major is for you. If I could do it all over again, I definitely would.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Sports Are Awesome – Even if one is not involved in the school's sports, there is always the option of intramurals, where many can go out and just play the sport they really enjoy. For example, I played intramural soccer and it was the best!

4 College Junior

Majors: I did an internship over the summer in Tennessee. It was really an amazing experience. It was with the Southwestern company and I was a door to door salesman selling school materials from Kinder through college level courses. At first I didn't like the idea, but I decided to try it. I met amazing people and I can't wait to do it again. I came back as a more confident person.

3 College Junior

Parking: Not So Good – Parking are really expensive to park in garages. The cheapiest ones are far from campus so it takes a while to get to classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are old and out dated and need a renovation. Space is limited, so you are not guaranteed a housing spot as a freshman.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of variety, especially on Guadalupe which is close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: If you like warm weather and abnormal seasons, you'll love it here.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics at UT Austin are incredible. I think it's nice that UT has students taking core classes, which has students taking classes from many different colleges on campus, like the Butler school of Music and College of Communications, for example. Professors here are really great, and they definitely make classes really interesting!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere at UT Austin is incredible! There are so many different types organizations to be apart of, so many different ways to meet students. There's basically something for everyone!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There's everything here in Austin. The atmosphere is so confirm able and nobody judges you. Everyone is so nice and the sports are all fun and amazing to watch and enjoy. There's a great mall about 10 minutes away and everything on campus is very nice to go and shop and look around as we'll. safety is not a concern.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing such as apartments tend to be a lot cheaper but then also have the possibility of being a little far from campus so people have to walk a lot more.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are numerous local dining areas that you can try. Mostly on the downtown area.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Everything is always top shelf on campus from the food, food service, and employee competence.

Majors: I majored in Human Development and Family Science. I am very satisfied with my program. I like that my program had a lab school associated with the program where those who chose the Early Childhood Development Track can gain hands on experience. I got a chance to work directly with young children at this lab school from the very first class I took for this major. The work load is fair and mostly all assignments for my classes helped me gain practical knowledge related to my field.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The Human Development and Family Science major requires you to complete a non-paid practicum your final semester. I interned for Easter Seals, Early Childhood Development Center. I got to work with specialist to provide interventions services to children with disabilities and developmental delays. The practicum director gives you a list of places that you can intern at, and you have to contact them and set up an interview. Getting an internship is not difficult. If you can't find one the program director will help you.

Majors: I majored in human development and family science. This program is in the College of Natural Science. The process was very easy. I just had to take 2 classes before declaring my major. You can meet with an adviser for the program and they will provide a list of courses that are required to complete this major.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The worst that can happen is if my class is far from my dorm and it is really windy, that dust and leaves are flying all over the place, i don't go to class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is great to live on campus, mainly because of access to everything on campus. The only thing I do not like is the cost of living on campus, it is pretty expensive. Also the amount of dine in dollars we get at UT is not sufficient enough for an entire year.

Campus Quality: As a first year engineering major, i like how the women in engineering program offer opportunity for underclassmen to participate in research with a graduate student. Also the Undergraduate writing center is the best, the people there help you better understand what type of writer you are, and how to improve your writing skills.

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!
