Administration: UT is notoriously strict when it comes to academics. Any cheating or plagiarism is usually caught and punished. As far as social lives, UT encourages practicing safe alcohol consumption for those 21+, and advocates for the prevention of sexual violence or assault.

Party Scene: Being that the campus in located in downtown Austin the party scene is excellent. There are bars around the campus where a lot of college students go to during the week such as Crown and Anchor or Cain and Abel's. 6th street is very popular among students as well. UT fraternities also have parties which take place throughout west campus, Round Up is an especially popular Greek party weekend. I think the party scene can have a positive effect on students because you get to meet a lot of people.

Scholarships: Getting ahold of the financial aid office can be difficult at times, but they are very helpful at explaining your financial aid package.

Campus Food: I would prefer we had healthier, fresher options for food. Their is only one salad bar on campus that I know of and the quality is ok, it could be better. I would love to see much more vegan and gluten free options.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great! Although the space is somewhat cramped, housing is in close proximity to practically everything! Housing is close to many different dining halls, restaurants (sit down & fast food) and is especially close to classes, the football stadium, and the library to name just a few.

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!
