4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is open to so many new opportunities and allows for students to branch out and find their own niche within society. I believe that this is extremely important when it comes to students finding their true selves. We are not locked within certain society standards when it comes to the University of Texas at Austin campus. If it weren't for going to my school, I would not be the person I am today. It has shaped me into the strong independent person I am.

Athletics: Everything you could possibly ask for is here.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UT has a lot of resources dedicated to student safety.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center does a lot to help you get the career you want.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like my school because there is very much an engineering community, and an undergraduate community, feeling here.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many homeless people on the street such as the drag. It is always safer to walk on campus back to the dorms than to walk on the drag back. Sometimes I think it is still a bit scary to walk alone on campus, so it is better to walk with a friend or ask the organization called SURE Walk to send people to walk with you back to your room.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have met some professors who are really down to earth and want to help students in any way they can. I have had mostly great experiences with all my classes except one or two. There are some classes that are huge with 400+ people in it and there are some that only have 20 people in it. I personally like smaller classes because you get to know the people in there better and get to talk to the professors more.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many internship opportunities offered, but not a lot of people know about them. There are career fairs held once or twice every semester depending on your major. There are also many places on campus that are always hiring people like Starbucks in the SAC or CoCo's Cafe on the drag.

Campus Housing: I feel like the room is a bit too small and the room tends to be freezing. The community bathroom is usually clean by the janitors everyday so that is a plus. Doing laundry in the dorm is a hassle and sometimes people would take out your clothes when it is finished just so they can use the washer or dryer.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have tried to rush one of the sororities on campus, however it was difficult to get a bid and i felt like some of the girls were somewhat judgemental. It is fun to see all the sorority girls having fun together, but I do not think I would want to rush again.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the classes I have taken are interesting and great. The only thing that I do not like about the school is that it is so big and it takes a lot of time to walk from one end of the school to the other.

Athletics: Incredible school spirit and nearly the entire nation is a fan of UT!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I walk home alone almost every night across campus at around or close to midnight. I feel extremely safe while walking because the UTPD is always on patrol and is making sure people are safe on campus at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's nice living on campus and being so close to everyone and everything. Sooner or later you meet everyone on your floor and sometimes you become friends with them. The only thing to dislike is the space of the rooms.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are tend to be known for the parties that they throw, but that's not everything about them. They host many fundraisers and are a part of the community. So I would say they're okay.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Even if you don't like football, after coming to UT you realize how big of a part it is to the school culture. Then slowly but surely your are immersed in it as well.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin makes sure that you know how special you are and constantly remind you of it. It helps when you get down in the dumps about your grades. It helps you know that college isn't easy and that the school will help you as much as they can.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The best school in Texas. The most well-rounded school in America.

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!
