UT Austin is an amazing school with so much to offer -- what starts here really does change the world. From its diverse array of student organizations and clubs, to some of the best professors in all of Texas, UT definitely is the best for academics and student success. The classes here really focus on learning as the end goal. You can tell the passion and drive from UT students really stems from a will to learn and succeed in whatever field they are pursuing. It's definitely very fast-paced and super competitive here which can be stressful, but this stress also serves as a great motivator to strive to be the best version of yourself. UT's work-life balance is also great because there are so many fun, recreational things to do in Austin, like paddle boarding, hiking the green belt, watching movies at Alamo Drafthouse, or seeing live music shows downtown. All around a great experience that I would highly recommend to anyone willing to push themselves to their greatest potential!

I am currently attending the University of Texas at Austin and I think it's great! The professors are very knowledgeable and although they might be tough, you really learn a lot from them. Also, I feel like there are tons of opportunities to be involved in the community through UT. I am volunteering at Austin Speech Labs thanks to my advisor who sent information regarding volunteering opportunities. Most students are very friendly and I like that there is a lot of diversity. There are also plenty of organizations and clubs to join so making friends is not difficult to do. All in all, I've learned so much while attending UT from my professors to my peers and the community as a whole.

The university of Texas at Austin is a great university for students that enjoy having big experiences. I had an opportunity to visit it and i can tell that my experience was very unique. The environment felt like i was in home. Everyone treats you as you were part of their family. The buildings are really big and having great capacity of students. Teachers are well-trained and they offer you opportunities to get to know them. At UT Austin they have plenty of opportunities for students who want to stand out. This university is well prepared and has everything a student need to succeed. Great university! The university of my dreams...!
