Greek Life: Im not involved with it

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is a huge deal and it is easy to get involved in club sports, etc.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very inviting and easy to meet people. The employees do a good job to try and make a big school feel close.

Academics: Professors are great for the most part, some need improvement. The curriculum is great, and a semester typically covers a wide range of topics and information. The registration process is fairly simple and straightforward with waitlisting made easy and, more often than not, you can get in a class from the waitlist. The workload can be intense, depending on the classes you are taking, however the academic advisors are well informed of the demands of each class and can guide you to set up a schedule that will work for you. If you are determined to have a tough semester, they ensure that you know what you will be required to do and how much work you will be in for.

Overall Experience: The majority of the courses I have taken are interesting. Some courses need new professors who really engage the students, and spend time teaching the basic principles as opposed to assuming students will grasp them quickly and moving on. The handful of classes which I feel are a waste of time are usually those not related to your major and have professors that are more interested in their research. The class sizes can be a little large, but there is often ample time to speak with professors and TAs and get help.

Overall Experience: I have received an excellent education and continue to learn from my professors and classes. There is an abundance of well-educated students, TAs, professors, and counselors to help guide you and make your learning experience great, as long as you are willing to put in the effort. The only thing I would do different is to be more involved. I find it difficult to balance a full time schedule and make good grades with being involved in student groups, but that is something I would go back and change. If given the opportunity to find that balance, I'm sure my college experience would be the best.

Campus Housing: I went in expecting th worst but I love the convenience living on campus gives. My roommate and neighbors are the greatest.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is definitely a lot of school spirit on campus that revolves around sports

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The people and environment are great in general but I don't feel like I there is a place for me despite the abundance of options

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.

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!
