Overall Experience: The University of Texas gave me unique experiences with all walks of life. I believe that I, personally, would have done better in a smaller school setting, however the resources on campus are extensive. I feel like it is a very opportunistic place to learn and grow as a student and a person.

Overall Experience: UT is incredibly diverse and endlessly interesting. There are multiple opportunities students receive on a daily basis to become more successful in their educational career and other important aspects of life. In college, it is important to be an atmosphere that allows one to utilize their potential to grow as a student and a person. If I could choose again, I would not change my decision. What starts here changes the world!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT is an amazing school hands down. The students here are really motivated but at the same time super nice and understanding of your situation. There are so many opportunities to succeed in any field, because of the connections and worldwide recognition of a lot of UT's programs, including the Department of Computer Science, the McCombs School of Business, the Stan Richards School of Advertising & PR, the Cockrell School of Engineering, and the Moody College of Communications. The school is extremely well-funded and the facilities here are top-notch. The living situation is great as well. Coming from out-of-state, my first year here was extremely rough, but I guess that would be the case at any school. Overall, it will make you happy and whatever hardships you face, if any, will make you a better person.

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is a great school in a great city. The people are all really nice and understanding towards freshman and they really want you to try and get involved on campus. There are tins of different clubs and activities that you can join, so there really is something for everyone, and if there's not, you can create and start a club.

Overall Experience: The student life is amazing. There is always something to do and new people to meet. Everyone is open to meeting new people because the school is so large. Although Austin is a city in Texas it feels like a whole other place!

Overall Experience: College is hard but that's what I wanted. Professors are passionate and good at their jobs, students are eager to learn yet still have fun, and the school spirit is overwhelming. Getting lost happened frequently but you win some, you lose some, right?

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From my extremely limited experience here (I'm a freshman and school has only been in session for about a week), I love it. Almost everyone here is extremely friendly and welcoming, and it's easy to find people with the same interests as you. I think our school is honestly the friendliest school I've seen out of the many colleges I toured. I found friends very quickly, though this will obviously vary depending on your personality. I also think that my professors are great and I've been learning a lot of great information in very engaging ways. There's also a lot of school spirit, which I love! I definitely wouldn't go anywhere else if I had to go through the college decision process again.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience with my university is amazing. I made new friendships and met new people. What makes my school unique is the fact that it is very diverse. There are many clubs that students can join. Our mascot, the longhorn, is universally known. The classes in this university is rigorous but manageable. If I could choose my school again I would still choose this university because it has opened up many opportunities for me. Yes, it's hard but I believe it will help in preparing me for the real world.

Overall Experience: It's only the very first day of classes, but I've admired the campus for a good amount of time. The people are so friendly and the networking of people, classes, buses, etc are all so sufficient and welcoming. I can only imagine good times here and hope that my department will fall under that pattern.

Overall Experience: It's THE BEST PLACE TO LIVE. Not only is Austin an amazing college town, it's also an amazing city! There's lots to do when you aren't studying. The Longhorn spirit is contagious. We LOVE our Longhorn football and alllll the other sports. The academics are all pretty challenging, but isn't that why it's so hard to get in here? I came here for a challenge, a quality education, and a great time. I could never picture myself anywhere else!

Overall Experience: So far, I think UT Austin is a great school. Not only does it provide a great education for a good price (if you're a Texas resident), it also provides a really engaging and fruitful environment. There is a great diversity of students, which allows student to make a wide range of friends as well as learn about different cultures without taking classes. There are a ton of extracurricular activities which make it easy for a student to find their niche. My only problem with UT Austin would be their required core classes. Although I do think that it's important for students to have a base knowledge of certain subjects in their education, I wish they were more geared towards what we could use in the real world. It would make more sense for all students to take a finance class to learn how to be responsible spenders instead of taking biology, a subject that a non-science major will forget the second they leave the final exam. Other than that, I love UT Austin and am glad that I picked this school to attend. And in one year, I will be a proud alumni.

Overall Experience: I think what makes the University of Texas unique is how everyone is equally accepted there. I have never felt left out, especially since growing up as a minority has always made me feel as though I am not an equal to others. I am very excited to call UT my home for the next four years and even more proud of representing this school!

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!
