3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Easy to find parties as a non Greek

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football sucks lol. Volleyball & basketball is good, but I've personally never seen for myself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really appreciate the sheer size of the campus. Due to its size, there are a lot of resources waiting for undergraduates to utilize them (ie: research is SO easy to get). Furthermore, the classes are relatively challenging. One drawback is the cost of textbooks and the associated learning platforms. It seems like every class uses a different learning platform. Very annoying and costly.

Health & Safety: The security is very well organised in letting the students know when there is a crime or unsafe situation going on. UT has its own police department which is really a hardworking unit.

Overall Experience: This is a very accredited school and the degrees have high values

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like how the housing is very close to all our classes but that is the only convenience to living in campus. Especially with new rates, I don't think we are getting our money's worth.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Like I said about sports, I'm not much involved with Greek life. But from what I have heard, there are Greek societies that fit for everyone.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I haven't had a chance to participate in the sports at UT because I'm personally very clumsy and prefer to stay away from sports. But I guess they have a good sport section.

Overall Experience: So far, the academic curriculum has been challenging and there are so many resources where students can get help. There are also a wide variety of extracurricular activities and volunteering opportunities available. There is also a really diverse community of students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school experience is great but I'm introverted so I can't really give a large explanation of my social life because I have a very small group of friends.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel like if you have a degree from UT it is worth a lot more than degrees from any other place.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I feel like if you don't look a certain way there is no chance of you getting into the main greek organizations.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really a big sports person so my opinion may be different than others. I only went to 2 football games and I will admit that the facilities are really nice.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the school but the environment is not one that I particularly like.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The support from the students and faculty is unbelievable. UT Austin sports, especially football, have so many traditions and have been long standing that the athletic department has really transformed into something amazing.

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!
