Campus Housing: Quite honestly I enjoy living in Jester West because the dorm room is spacious, the food option within Jester are plentiful, and it provides a great social atmosphere!

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus diners around school are welcoming to all UT students and work often with the University to provide students with discounts that help immensely when on a small budget.

Athletics: Going to games is one of the best things I like to do on my free time. It is also a great way for people of all backgrounds who come from all over the country to come together and just relax after a long week.

Greek Life: Non-Greeks do not necessarily hate Greeks. If anything, everyone gets along great, especially through the parties that the Greeks throw for all people.

Majors: I do plan on getting an internship later on in college. My only concern is that there are so many qualified people in Austin that it will be extremely difficult to get accepted.

Academics: The classes are taught by professors who are all accomplished in their fields of work and have such a way of teaching that it is almost impossible not to learn.

Health & Safety: Campus crime has never been more aggressive than stealing, and the few attempts of robberies or assaults have been solved as efficiently as could have been.

Administration: They're strict about some things, but not about others. After past gunmen incidents, security officers are now kept in all of the libraries. They're pretty nice and helpful.

When it comes to drugs though, I don't know where the administration goes. They turn a blind eye to most drinking and drug incidents. One girl I used to know talked about how she OD'd on drugs and was acting like a psycho, but when the cops came, they pretty much gave her a slap on the wrist and let her go. I imagine they do this a lot because you never hear about any students getting busted for drugs. =P

Party Scene: UT is a HUGE party school. If you don't drink or party, you're out of about 50% of the social circles.

I myself don't drink or party (I just feel there are other safer and more interesting ways to have fun), but I still have friends, so not all hope is lost for non-drinker-partyers.

Parties happen a lot, or students like to get together at bars for drinks. Stuff like that gets posted on UT group Facebook pages all the time in an effort to get the word out and get more people to come.

Guys & Girls: ALMOST EVERYONE IS A HIPSTER. This drives me up the wall sometimes because I'm NOT a hipster at all, so sometimes I'm raising eyebrows at the hobo junk people walk around wearing, or the funky stuff I hear in people's conversations.

UT has consecutively made the lists for "Worst Dressed Campus" for the past few years, and students know this, but they don't care. This is good in a way because you can pretty much wear what you want, and as long as it's not too tacky or weird, you most likely won't get judged. I see guys usually walking around in T-shirts, shorts, jeans and flip-flops, and girls usually wear "sportier" stuff like tank tops, peasant shirts, t-shirts, shorts, and jeans. I'd recommend sandals, flip-flops, or flats because you often need to do a lot of walking, and oftentimes you're climbing steps or going up/down slopes.

I don't care for the social life around here much because it mainly revolves drinking and partying, neither of which I'm a big fan of. If you don't do either, you'll pretty much be out of about half of the social circles here at UT.

Free condoms are given away at the Student Services Building, and often on fun holidays too, such as Halloween. Hopefully you understand what I'm implying about student life in regards to 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!
