Scholarships: Every time I try to go get help, there are so many people that they will never get around to me. I'm starting to worry that I'll never get my financial aid and not be able to pay for college.

Majors: I want to get an advertising internship, but I can only afford to do a paid internship. So far, I haven't had much luck since most are unpaid.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is usually pretty terrible because it's ridiculously expensive and not great quality.

Off-Campus Housing: I hear a lot of bad things about the one's closest to campus, but I've heard good things about the housing on Riverside. The prices are reasonable and the rooms look nice.

Local Area: This is the place to be as a college student. There's always something fun to do on the weekends, especially with friends. Me, I'm a movie guy, and movies + Austin = amazing. There's also really nice natural attractions!

Health & Safety: There are a lot of emergency booths you use to call the campus police when you're in a dangerous situation. Most of the time, campus police are nearby, which is comforting.

Party Scene: Nothing special. Walking around at night is actually pretty nice from where I lived, mainly because it was always nice and breezy. Everyone minds their own business. If you'd want to party, you'd have to go looking for them and know ahead of time where they take place.

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.

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 ExperienceWhat's 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!
