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.

Administration: Nothing is too strict, so we can pretty much just do whatever we want, within reason. We can come and go as we please, but not drink and do drugs or anything like that.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in one of the newest dorms that has private bathrooms so it's pretty awesome! I also live on the top floor so I have high ceilings. My dorm is pretty quiet as far as partying or just loud visitors, but the RA's are always hosting events for us!

Greek Life: Greek life is much less touted than in the past. It is very pronounced and visible. Most non-Greeks are tolerant. The non-social fraternities/sororities are becoming more numerous eg religious, science, trades etc

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!
