Greek Life: Greek life is ilonly 17% of our population but it feels like 70. They aren't overtly snobby about being Greek though. I know a lot of cool Greeks.

Local Area: Austin is filled with things to do. The music scene is great, there are always concerts going on. There's always some type of event going on, from ACL to F1 racing, to Austin Film Fest, etc. Such a fun and diverse place to live.

Overall Experience: All of the professors are great and super helpful. The material of the courses is always relevant and interesting. My biggest class is a lecture of about 200, but other than that there are pretty decent class sizes for it being such a big school.

Off-Campus Dining: The Drag is convenient because it's so close to campus. There are so many options for great food, (Torchy's, Mellow Mushroom, Co-op Food Trucks, etc.) and also places that are open late. Everywhere you go there's sure to be good food close by. You can't go wrong!

Majors: The audition was a little intimidating, but that's normal. The hardest part about getting into the program is getting into the university, so if you have good grades, you should have no problem.

Campus Housing: I lived in San Jacinto, which has it's pros and cons. Paper thin walls is a big con, but the attached dining hall and great resident community is a pro.

Off-Campus Housing: I like in Dobie center, which is very close to campus, but definitely not worth the price. Incompetent security guards. Paper thin walls.

Greek Life: I personally do not like Greek life, nor am I a part. Thus, II would not be fit to give a good view.

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!
