Technology: There is computers labs all over The University of Texas. There is some in dorms, of course in the library. Some colleges have labs just for there students. During finals most labs are crowded but you always find some if you know where to look, the less known places. You can rent laptops and the WiFi has great connection over UT.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are great, you are able to choose from very different environments and types of rooms. The most common dorm for freshman are jester west and east, which are located conveniently placed near dining areas and is close to the gym and library.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very unique, your not judged on how you look or speak. I love that UT is very diverse and everyone is excepted. If you meet people from out of state or even country, your welcomed and people are actually intrigued by you and your culture.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are many parking spots in the garages, but there pretty far from campus so you have to walk a long while. Also, there very little meters around campus to park and the limit is 45 min.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid at my school has been great with answering any questions I might have and I'm very blessed to be receiving financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It is great (JCL and J2) for the first few weeks, but then it gets old. I dine 1-2 times a week on Guadalupe now. I'm so tired of eating chicken.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: A lot of people >:) I love seeing my Asians again. I have not seen much Asian after moving from NY. It is very multi-cultural place. Also, I never know that Asians go to church, haha. I joined a fellowship group - the people there are very friendly.

Health & Safety: Really safe, everywhere I go I feel safe, always people around.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload varies from class to class but it has never been overwhelming.professors vary as well, but they are all above par and very attentive to their students. the registration process is a little crazy but i'm sure its like that at any university.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Austin, TX is the live music capitol of texas! And football in texas is a lot of fun! Apart from that UT is a lot of fun and provides a great college campus experience.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: the curriculum is created especially to prepare you for physical therapist schooling which is a very good thing.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are plenty of facilities for students on campus, but around finals time it can be very hard to find somewhere to study. Any other time besides finals time the campus is amazing and there is always something to do.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everybody here is extremely friendly and open about their ideals. However there are few that are extreme in their beliefs. There seems to be more attractions to follow certain trends and at times is frowned upon to stick out.

Greek Life: The Greek life is well known for wild parties and drinking. However there are some cases of hazing and breaking up of parties by law enforcement. There is some stress on keeping a certain degree of GPA but there is more stress on attending socials. Also Greek life seems to isolate itself from non-Greek life.

Technology: The computers are extremely useful and have great access to most programs. However at times they run slow and there is a limited number of computers available for use.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Cafeterias in dorms allow the use of Dine-In dollars if you live in a dorm. If not, you can always use Bevo Bucks or cash/card. There are plenty of places to choose from to eat on campus as well as on the drag.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation by bus is free for UT students! There are scheduled times you can look up online to see when the busses come to certain bus stops. If walking alone at night, you can call SURE Walk to have someone walk with you for safety reasons.

Diversity: There is a large variety of different ethnic backgrounds, however, less African Americans than I expected.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The dining halls really try for better quality food, but it's not the cheapest. They also aren't open late hours, leaving just fast food as an option many times.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Bars and clubs are almost all 21 and up, but but there are tons of parties in nearby neighborhoods for those who still want some late night fun. Once you hit 21 though, it is much better as Austin has a plethora of cool bars.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There is so much to do on campus and so many people!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm currently undeclared right now, but I'm really wanting to go into business. McCombs is extremely prestigious and it's tough to get in, but I'm hoping that if I do, it will be well worth it. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved and network within the school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of options for off-campus housing. A lot of people turn to West Campus, but there's also Riverside and other options. I just signed my lease for an apartment that's only 4 blocks away from campus with a decent price per month. There are lots of apartment options in West Campus and there's also many frat and sorority houses. There's also free realtors that help you find what you need.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus housing is great and really convenient. I live in Jester West and even though it may be old, it's going to be renovated for next fall and everything is right there. There's two dining halls, Wendy's, pizza place, Jester Java coffee shop, the Sanger Learning Center, and a bunch of study lounges. I've had a great time living on campus and it makes getting to class so much easier, even one of my classes is in Jester.

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!
