3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Some people love the Greek life, and I do not. I'd say that living really near campus you will be immersed in it, so if you don't want to be live further out.

Off-Campus Housing: It costs a lot to live in Austin these days. However, there are a lot of great options a bit further out for cheaper, that are directly on bus lines, or metro lines. This makes it much more doable.

Majors: I'm very new in the program, but so far I have loved all of the efficiency and communication of the program and professors and all job opportunities. We receive several emails a week with different job opportunities for students.

Majors: I have had two internships through UT, one for a news company, and one as a student teacher. Both were enlightening and enjoyable experiences. I chose to follow teaching and have continued to enjoy it. Neither were paid; you couldn't get credit and get paid.

Academics: Because UT is so huge, there's a lot of variety, but all of the experiences I've had with professors have been fairly wonderful. However, doing research on professors is advised for large classes, because some are inherently better and if there are several choices, pick the best one!

Academics: I love the Education program at UT; it is one of the best in the nation. The only thing I wish was different about it was a newer building, but I realize that's just selfish and silly.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is only good if you've got connections who know how to get a good apartment for a lesser cost.

Off-Campus Dining: The places are okay like the on-campus dining, and there is a lot more variation, but the food near school is not of my preference in terms of taste and cost.

Administration: I would say it is fair. I haven't lived on campus but rules are pretty much abided by the students.

Campus Quality: There are many things to do on and off campus, so many organizations to join, and so many new people to meet. Our athletic program is the best too, in my opinion and by ranking. There is always something to do.

Campus Quality: We always have access to the facilities on campus; my personal favorite is Gregory Gym and the fact that it's open until 1 a.m.

Campus Quality: Some buildings are really old while some are brand new. Everything is pretty much bunched together so it is easy to get to but there are a lot of people to navigate.

Campus Quality: They try their best to make it comfortable and convenient. There are very little green spaces. Most Students hang out around the food places and the library. Tradition is a big part of what we do here.

Campus Food: There is very few options in the dinning halls and it is expensive. It is cheaper to eat fast food. There are fast food places on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Some places have great landlords some do not. I had sewage seeping up through my floors and nothing was done about it. to have the good prices you have to move a little from campus. however if you have a low budget it might be hard to find something because things are expensive. To live in the good neighborhoods, the cheapest is 725 a month. There are so many coming here that the prices have sky rocketed. If you are a freshman, it might be best to stay on campus your first year so that you can get the feel for things. Because if you wake up late chances are you might miss your class.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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!
