UT Austin is an amazing school with so much to offer -- what starts here really does change the world. From its diverse array of student organizations and clubs, to some of the best professors in all of Texas, UT definitely is the best for academics and student success. The classes here really focus on learning as the end goal. You can tell the passion and drive from UT students really stems from a will to learn and succeed in whatever field they are pursuing. It's definitely very fast-paced and super competitive here which can be stressful, but this stress also serves as a great motivator to strive to be the best version of yourself. UT's work-life balance is also great because there are so many fun, recreational things to do in Austin, like paddle boarding, hiking the green belt, watching movies at Alamo Drafthouse, or seeing live music shows downtown. All around a great experience that I would highly recommend to anyone willing to push themselves to their greatest potential!

I am currently attending the University of Texas at Austin and I think it's great! The professors are very knowledgeable and although they might be tough, you really learn a lot from them. Also, I feel like there are tons of opportunities to be involved in the community through UT. I am volunteering at Austin Speech Labs thanks to my advisor who sent information regarding volunteering opportunities. Most students are very friendly and I like that there is a lot of diversity. There are also plenty of organizations and clubs to join so making friends is not difficult to do. All in all, I've learned so much while attending UT from my professors to my peers and the community as a whole.

It's great to live on campus because the accessibility of meeting new people is just next door! People in dorms are friendly and considerate. I'd highly recommend San Jac, or Jester East as those are the most cleanest and newly renovated dorms on campus. Amenities include $1500 in "Bevo Bucks" which are funds exclusively allocated for school use, access to a room advisor on every floor, and events hosted weekly. The costs are what you'd expect them to range (around the same price as tuition) and it is definitely cheaper than living off campus. As for convenience, the dorms are nearest to the school gym (Gregory Gym), the most commonly used library (PCL), and many on campus dining options.
