4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since the University of Texas at Austin is considered a prestiges school in some rankings, it's easier to receive jobs after graduating form this university. Although part of that reason is because UT holds career fairs and strongly encourages students to be actively involved in them. Also, they offer jobs on campus for students who don't have transportation, but the application process can be time consuming and competitive. But overall, the UT community offers lots of opportunities for internships and other jobs that are related to the career path that the student is pursuing.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is convenient for classes and they offer decent food plans, but it's just they don't offer as much as you pay them for. The housing that is around campus proves to be cheaper than actually living on campus, but they don't come with the same amenities that on campus housing offers. Most of the dorms are only good to sleep in, if classes allow that, and the space is pretty cramped. Although the machinery can be faulty they still work it out especially since UT houses more students than it can handle. Other than the actually living environment the social atmosphere on campus is rewarding. It's easy to make friends and there's always activities happening so students always have something to do. Most people stay in Jester and San Jacinto which prove to be the better dorms especially since there is a lager student population living in both.

Greek Life: Greek life is a major part of the University of Texas at Austin, there are a wide range of sororities and fraternities that students can participate in. Most are moderately difficult to enter on campus since they have a strict code and so forth but they are pretty accepting. They tend to throw more parties than offering services that help the community, but those are only the Greeks that have been there for a longer period of time. The housing for these groups are usually extremely expensive considering the housing opportunities that Austin offers.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not much of the athlete so I don't really know what's going on in the sport world of UT Austin. They have a decent football team and there is a decent amount of school spirit, it's just that in recent years the team hasn't been doing as well as they used to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin holds many possibilities for the students that attend, and offer wide varieties of classes. This is helpful in allowing students to explore different avenues for a future career. Also, the staff and professors make the environment entertaining and fun to learn, which allows the students to stay engaged in the classrooms and motivated to further their learning experience. The only problem is that expense of living in Austin is financially burdensome, especially when added to the tuition cost. Due to this, other colleges may be better options but UT at Austin has better educational opportunities that I would like to further explore. I would most likely choose UT again if I had to go through the application process again.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are some professors that can be unique in their own way that make the students not always enojoy the lecture, but most of the professors are very nice, passionate about their field and they teach well/ We have a huge campus, faculty, student body so the number of courses and variety are enormous. Class sizes depend but it's mostly the lower division core classes that have like 300+ students but other than that they are mostly classes with 30~80 students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you are planning to live in Texas, with the degree at UT Austin, you are all set/ Even at the national stage, UT is a pretty competetive school. In fact because of the recent economic growth in Texas with gas and businesses coming in, the Texas state government is getting alot of money. UT now ranks #4 college national for their budget in research and overall campus amenities(Harvard is #1). and what's more is it's growing even more. UT is building new buildings everyday all year. We are building new Med school from what I've heard.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campous

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: University of Texas at Austin is a very good school/ pretty competitive in many different fields of studies and very competitive athlete teams as well/ So there are alot you can do on campus and it's only about a mile away from downdown Austin so if you don't find anything interesting, which I doubt you won't cuz there are 50,000 students on campus, you can also go downtown and have fun there!! Depending on what type of person you are, you might not like the campus because it's so large. It can take 3~40 min to walk across the campus. But then again we have free bus for students with school IDs, running all over campus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek housing is incredibly good for those fraternities that can afford it. West campus property is exensive which makes it hard for those without a house to get one. There'snothing negative to not joining a greek organization but there are defnitiely positives so long as you can afford it. There seems to be a general stigma against greeks by non-greeks but nothing different than the norm in the rest of the country.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Would be 5/5 5-10 years ago but thanks to the current football slump, fan support and student involvement is lacking.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Satisfied with classes and professors so far. Not happy with councilor suggestions or the fact that they won't accept my IB history credit for the American history requirement.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People in my program tend to do very well.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It was fine but not great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT is a great school and has been a good learning experience.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit in everyone is astounding. So much school pride is found everywhere you go and in everything you do, even when not in Austin, you're sure to find a longhorn somewhere.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UT is very well-rounded and has a place for everyone if you take the time to find it. People are welcoming and always looking out for each other. Campus is like its own little city, which is pretty cool.

Health & Safety: I like that there is a police station on campus. So there is a lot of patrols and the police are able to react very fast.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the diversity and acceptance here. I feel like I've found a place where I belong.

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!
