4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Texas has blessed with me with plenty of opportunities not just academically but socially as well. I've been taught by many of the brightest Math/Computer Science professors during my tenure at UT and it not only made my classroom experience better but also improved my interest in the subject. This building interest allowed me to narrow down where and what I wanted to study in Graduate school as well as the career field that I felt suited me well. On the other hand, intramural sports have allowed my friends and I to relive the glory days of high school sports that we all once participated in. The intramural program at UT is great about keeping the leagues competitive for all types of players. There are leagues for people who just want to have fun, people who want a slight challenge but not too much, and for people who want 100% competition. It's this versatility that intramurals at UT bring to its students that make it a very unique experience for anyone attending school. It allows everyone to relive their own sports memories or perhaps create their first one. Now those are my two experiences that I've dealt with the most, however, UT is such a large and diverse campus that intramural sports is sadly only one of the many other exciting social programs that are provided for students around campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are very big. I wish they were smaller. But all you have to do is go to office hours and bond with the professor if you want that smaller feel. Also make friends in your classroom. Make study groups. Courses are very challenging, and professors are very knowledgeable. There are a variety of courses. Also, a lot of classes are now flipped.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career center is very helpful!! It will prepare you for whatever you are aiming for. It gets you in the right, competitive state of mind as well.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Rooms are of average size, there are different dining places but they usually serve the same type of food. I like JCL, but some people complain that it's too expensive. But if you have a lot of Dine-In Dollars (like me), I go there often and get a slice of cake. I like desserts, so I like to eat at JCL because they always have a good dessert variety. But most people like Kinsolving cause its the cheapest and its a buffet, but its usually the same food everyday with like 2-3 different options.

5 College Student

Party Scene: Parties and sixth street. You can even just go out on South Congress or Barton Springs area for dining or outdoor fun.

Athletics: I don't like sports and I hate the attention that the football players and events get. But its a good crowd, good spirit, good facilities, but horrible team.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: On campus I usually feel safe, if you go on West Campus it can get a little shady.

4 College Student

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life, but basically if you're a girl you can go to just about any frat party, but if you're a non-greek guy - tough luck.

5 College Student

Academics: Popular study areas include the Flawn Academic Center and the Perry Castaneda Library. There is a good amount of work, but there's always time for other things. Professors are generally very helpful.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm at the School of Architecture.....enough said.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm not too sure about other majors, but the School of Architecture has its own career center and we have well-known architecture firms around the world come and look for prospective employees here.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think the fraternities and sororities here on campus do great things. They volunteer a lot and raise funds for good causes. I don't know if they throw a lot of parties or not (how big the social scene is) but that they do great things, they definitely do.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Well there's a "Consent means _____, not ____" in pretty much any building, so you make what you want of that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great variety of courses to take, but because of the large population it may be hard to actually get into them, especially as a lower class men. Some professors will care more about you personally than others, but that also depends on the class size. Pretty much any intro class is going to have 300+ students, and if you can find one with less, then you are lucky.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of resources and networking opportunities and ways for you to meet new people. UT is a pretty renown university so a degree from there will mean something anywhere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is expensive. That is why I don't, but I do sometimes feel "out of the loop" and it kinda sucks, but I don't mind too much since I avoid paying for over priced housing.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Well sports, especially football is extremely important, especially at a university like UT. The stadium gets full on game and the school spirit is great, unfortunately tickets can get pricey.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The campus and student population is huge compared to pretty much any private college. At times it can be easy to feel like you're just a number amongst so many students, but it is also easy to find professors that genuinely care about you.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police are generally pretty helpful. I'm not too worried.

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!
