4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've don't know anyone who has had to deal with it but there seems to be good measures in place to help victims and to prevent sexual assault

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are a bit big for the entry level courses but that's to be expected. Otherwise quality is good.

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.

5 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've only just started out here, but it seems like the job prospects are very good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are super expensive, but some of the best are the BRP. I love living there and it's so much better than Jester.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a ton of sororities and fraternities so it can be hard finding the right one.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really into sports, but I know it's a pretty big deal here.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I love this school. There is so many interesting classes, professors, and things to do.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not felt endangered or heard about safety being a problem on campus, but it still exists. The school sent out reports and statistics on campus safety issues, which I appreciated. UT is also allowing concealed carrying on campus next year.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are very qualified and diverse in their involvement and teaching styles. Upper-level class sizes are smaller and TA's are utilized a lot.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree from a flagship school such as this one is very distinguished, which is half of the reason that I chose to go to this school.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I did not choose on-campus housing, and all housing is expensive at this school.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't care about Greek life here. It is more philanthropic than portrayed by the movies, but it's still cliche.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't care. We haven't had a viable football team since 2007 and have a lot of t-shirt fans, but I couldn't care less about sports at this school. I'm a scientist, not an athlete.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have only spent one semester at my dream school. So far it has been a bumpy ride adjusting to UT life, and I recommend going to UT as a freshman if you can instead of transferring like I did. As I learn more about the school, the more proud of it I become. I haven't explored my options at UT much yet but intend to take my pride by the longhorns and become much more involved with research and extracurriculars in the upcoming year/semester. This school is challenging, exciting, huge, intimidating, proud (we have a lot of t-shirt fans here), liberal, and worth it. The environment is empowering and uplifting, and you will learn a lot about yourself while you live here in Austin.

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!
