Campus Housing: The dorms are okay and it depends on how much one is willing to spend.

Majors: I am in the right major for my future goals so am enjoying all of it. I am learning a lot that I did not know and finding that I knew more than I realized. I like that a few of my professors are actually a part of the athletic staff and are able to personally advise and give input as to the steps I am taking to secure my future.

Party Scene: As a Christian athlete I don't participate in the typical university party scene but, my friends and I do enjoy going out, hanging out, playing basketball, and eating.

Scholarships: My brother went to another Big 12 school in Texas and the experience my parents had with their financial aid department was horrible so we went in expecting the same thing. UT has it down to a smooth procedure with student workers who no how to communicate and explain and advise about any of the financial aid questions we had. We left amazed at how easy the process was.

Academics: Some things are great - professors so far have been amazing. Advisor is the best!!! I love the curriculum for my degree plan and look forward to the classes ahead of me as I progress in my degree plan. The whole university offers great study areas, study groups, tutoring options....

some things I do not like or understand - Terrible registration process. I hate how the window of registration is so tight and once closed you have to wait so long for it to open again. Classes are hard to get. I have been wait listed on most of my classes.

Academics: Facilities are the best.

Professors (except for one) are the best.

Internships - I'm just not there yet.

Workload is full, very full but doable.

Overall Experience: I have not had a lot of experience in multiple departments as my major is in Kinesology but I have enjoyed most of my professors and found them to be interesting, available, and easy to reach out to for help...advice..information...

Like any school I have encountered the one professor who is a total jerk. Doesn't give a rats _ _ _ if you pass or fail and doesn't make it easy to work with him, contact him....

the course I have taken so far, I have really learned alot. Especially in a couple of classes that I really did not anticipate that.

Surprisingly, our class size is small. i was prepared for large stadium style seating classes and those have been few.

Scholarships: I am from out of state and really feel with my level of income I should be awarded more financial aid. The people in the office who gave me advice were rude and seemed not to care about me or my choices.

Off-Campus Dining: I love food but hate that I can't park everywhere. I commute so that part is hard.

Administration: It seems as though all the students here really care about their education and so "strictness" doesn't matter all that much.

Campus Housing: Compared to living in a wide open space, it's small and expensive for a college kid.

Campus Quality: I like the city, so I love that campus feels like you're in the middle of a busy city. There are lots of study/chill spots around campus, and you find more and more of them the more you start exploring different party of campus.

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!
