Off-Campus Dining: Austin has many option when it comes to dining. The only bad thing is that the places can get a little pricey, but at the end is totally worth it!

Administration: I think the administration's strictness is fair. They are not too strict, nor too lenient, which makes it a great experience.

Scholarships: I am a freshman, and I hardly got any financial aid. Supposedly, as you advance in your college career you get more financial aid depending on your academic performance, but as of now, I am unhappy with the aid I received.

Party Scene: UT knows how to study and party. A typical friday night would be going to a friend's west campus apartment and then heading to 6th street. Both apartment parties and 6th street nighouts are great!

Campus Food: The food on campus is not the best, but it is pretty decent. You have many options, but the bad thing is that those options are repeated all the week, so you end up getting tired of the food.

Campus Housing: The best about living on campus is the convenience. You can eake up later, and get to your classes on time because they are close to the dorms. The space is not immense, but it is sufficient. They also have multiple study lounges, which help you a lot to focus on your studies and homework. Overall, the campus housing is a great option for students looking for a convenient way of living.

Scholarships: It is really hard to get any scholarships for Art majors and because UT´s population is so big, scholarships are always hard to get.

Party Scene: so much to do and events going on all the time. don't need to be part of the greek system to have a good time. UT students can definitely work hard and play hard. Oh, and being in the live music capital of the world is also a plus!

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!
