4 College Freshman

Academics: Business Marketing – My major is Business Marketing. While I have only been at school for one semester, I have been made aware of the awesome various opportunties for jobs and internships through the school. The curriculum is very organized for each major and the advisors have proved to be helpful thus far. I am impressed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Something for Everyone – There are so many different opportunities to be involved on campus and off campus. There is something for everyone whether you are artsy,, involved in your church, or looking to be a part of greek life. There are also many opportunities for outside of campus activities! Many parks and outdoor things to do as well as clubs to join in the community.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Choices, Choices, Choices – There isn't anything that can't be found when searching for some good eats in and around the University of Texas in Austin. There are so many uniquely beautiful and scrumptious places to eat in Austin. There is something for everyone. Also, it is very convenient to be able to use Bevo Bucks at some of the local restaurants! Be sure to check out Kerby Lane, located on The Drag, it's open 24 hours a day and never fails to be delicious!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The atmosphere at night is full of energy. Students who are 21 or older have easy access in enjoying their weekend at clubs, bars and house parties. Sixth street in Austin is known to be one of the most popular places for students of age to attend. However, for those who are under 21 usually hang out with close friends. The view at night is amazing.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Student Union Is Very Social – The student union recently built at the University is a great building that not only allows students to socialize with each other but also is a great place to study, eat, and host different theatre clubs or improv organizations in their open reserved rooms.

3 College Freshman

Technology: The Costing of Printing – Although our computer labs, high speed internet, availability to WiFi, and the access to computers in the library are all very generous and caring on behalf of the University, the price of printing isn't. As a first year college student, I have been focusing on my grades and organizations which do not allow me to have time for a job outside of the University. This only means that when an assignment is needed to be printed, the money being used to print comes from my pocket and leaves me on low financial needs. It would definitely be great if we each owned our own printer not only to save time but money too.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: Beautiful campus, buildings all very close together. Many new, impressive-looking buildings are being erected, but the engineering buildings are still quite old and terribly neglected.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You Been Hitting the Gym? There are all sorts of guys and girls on campus. And a lot of them are athletically fit. There isn't a second that goes by where you don't pass an attractive person.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food Is Not Bad – Compared to eating a home cooked meal I would definitely choose eating at home, but it is still well prepared. Also there is a lot of variety in what you can eat.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Excellent Learning Experience – I came to the University of Texas at Austin because engineering is my interest and the program for it here is enriching. The teachers work hard to help you understand the topics, and offer as much help as humanly possible.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's usually hot and sunny during the summers, and just a little cool in the morning. It never snows and hardly hails or rains hard enough to where it's a trouble to get to class. Students are always hanging out outside.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Permit costs are kind of high, but cars are not needed on campus. There are 4 bus routes just to get around campus. Buses are all free for students are help A LOT. If you choose to bring a car, parking can be a hassle.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams are great and work hard. Almost every student is a fan, the amount of school spirit is refreshing. Gregory Gym is a great place to work out. There are so many sports, anyone could find an activity to join.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply Early, Be Persistent – I applied for my finical aid early, i got all of my school paid for with fafsa it was amazing seeing the money come in. Make sure you do scholarships, i pay about 900 dollars to live on an apartment about ten minutes from campus opposed to paying 10,000. Be persistent with scholarships, don't be lazy!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great School Spirit, Great School. If anyone has an opportunity of coming here they should take it. There is nothing like going to school in austin. You have to remember to put school before social life though because its really day to fall behind.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Poor Communication – I think unless you personally don't know someone its hard to get advised in the greek life because of the huge amount of people coming to this school.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are so many different majors to choose from. Most advisors are helpful with any questions and there's also a career center for most college and even a basic one for any undergrad student who needs help. There's always someone to answer your question.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They're not particularly strict on campus. Just be smart and don't show off that you're doing inappropriate things and you should be fine.

Drug Safety: Don't Do It – Drugs aren't that obvious around campus. Underage drinking is completely accepted, almost encourage. The cops won't do too much about it unless you're obviously intoxicated in public and may be causing a scene.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They Do Have Loop Holes – Financial Aid in my campus is very difficult. Dont wait for them to contact you. You have to go in person if you really need to resolve an issue its the only way you can get it done. They may tell you no but be presistent they do have loop holes for such a big institution. All you have to do is ask question. Lots of questions.

5 College Junior

Technology: Up to Date – The first thing I noticed at the University of Texas was how up to date they were with technology. Another surpise was that they use nothing but Macintosh. I would have assumed Michael Dell would donated to them being that it is the university he attended. They have a great libraries with PLENTY of computers and also offer lap tops you can check out daily to take home for students that cant afford one or have time to spend in the library that came in handy to me my freshmen year.

1 College Junior

Academics: Stressed Out Biology Students – My major falls under the College of Natural Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin. We are the largest College on campus next to the McCombs School of Business. We are also one of the most difficult college in every aspect you can think of from registration to Examination. Our profs are the toughest ones.Even though we have the best teachers most of them barely speak english and just because they know the subject they teach like the back of their hand doesnt mean they know how to teach it. Its basically up to us to pass the class with our own resources. The work load has varied by profs in my two years there I have had ONE good science prof. The teacher student ration is 500 to 1 LITERALLY. Overall its a bittersweet feelings with my major.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Weather on campus is very unpredictable causing you to always be prepared.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many off campus dining options many within walking distance. Not all are college friendly.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Way Hot – Hey, it's Texas so you got to know you're in for some heat and some sun but it's dry heat. Not a lot of humidity.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
