4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you find the right people there is a good party goin on all the time, not to mention 6th street!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: HOOK EM' – Sports are the life here, we have the best teams and the best fans!

3 College Junior

Technology: Don't Bother – I don't bother using the computers on campus. Labs don't always have great hours and during finals they're extremely crowded. It's also frustrating being kicked off the faster internet after using a certain amount of bandwidth.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safe & Secure – UT has a multitude of resources available to keep students safe. We have an on-campus police force with emergency stations set up all over campus. We also have programs like Surewalk that offer students the safety of walking home with another students at all hours of the night.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here is nice but you can never tell about Texas. One day it might be cold the nice day it might be so hot. The weather is mostly nice though.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been times that i haven't felt safe, but the streets are quite lit and it is not that dark. There are alot of help police boxes so you can always get a hold of the police if you ever felt threatened. Other than that the campus is pretty safe. Bikes get stolen alot so I would say to have multiple locks and to register your bike.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The facilities here on campus are great. They are very useful with resources and are a great source for information. They are also clean and is renovated. Most facilities are a great place to hang out and study with friends.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Lots of White Students – The school isn't as diverse as they claim. In a school of 50,000 students only 5,000 are Black, but the redeeming quality is that the black community is generally close.

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Expensive – The apartments are really really expensive and not that big but they are really good if your an R.A. (they're free), and they come with a meal plan and your closer to all the activities/events on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Its Very Popular – A majority of parties you go to there will be alcohol and weed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greeks Are Really Big. The Greeks are really abundant at UT they throw alot of fun events/ parties.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Always a Great Time. The nightlife is one of the best things at UT. Parties everyday and there is literally a street, 6th street, dedicated to clubs and bars.

3 Recent Alumnus

Technology: Usually Really Good. The computers on campus are generally good except sometimes they don't work and during finals times the computer labs are full but there are a lot of labs.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Its Not Really the Greatest. The scholarships aren't the best thing at UT because its very hard to find them and its also really hard to get loans.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It doesn't really rain in Austin and It doesn't really get that cold, every once in a while it snows, but the only problem is that the summers are HOT like triple digit degrees til like November/December.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Very Helpful Teachers. The professors are very helpful, they are willing to work with you whenever you need help, like my chemistry teacher was willing to help me morning, noon and night just so that I can pass the chemistry.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: There are plenty of scholarships and grants to go around at UT Austin, you just have to look for them.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Normal Amount of Strictness – I have never gotten into trouble myself but the punishments were valid.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Really Safe Environment – The safety at UT Austin is very good. There are resources available for you if trouble were to be encountered and students are abundant. Everyone looks out for each other and never have I felt worried about my own safety going here.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I here of a lot of students who will come baked to class. A lot of students could be seen smoking from a hookah on campus. But now, UT has instilled a no smoking policy and the campus is smoke free so there shouldn't be too much of a problem with cigarettes or hookahs anymore. As for other drugs, i don't know too much about those circulating around campus to give an honest answer.

Party Scene: Party Scene – Austin, Texas has a variety of hot spots all around the center of town. Most explicitly is 6th street. This main street is filled with bars and live music all night long. There are a few under 21 joints but the majority of the time you're either sneaking in or partying at a frat house.

Academics: Health Promotion – The workload required for this field is adequate and the information is crucial to the environment. Many people don't know too much about health promotion but they encounter it everyday and there are numerous positions that can be gained from a degree in Health Promotion.

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!
