4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors genuinely care about the success of their students and will help if you go to their office hours. Most entry level courses are full of students and are taught by the book but the coursework in these classes isn't bad at all.

Campus Housing: You get what you pay for. The rooms are small but the bathrooms are decent and the community bathrooms are kept very clean. The convenience of living very close to classes and cheap sources of food is unparalleled though.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Little bit of everything here at UT. The only issue is the size, this is a very big school and the teachers/advisors acknowledge it and do the best they can in dealing with problems that occur. Plenty of opportunities for research through the FRI program if you're interested in science.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally feel pretty safe when walking across campus. Obviously, the only time I am personally aprehensive about walking alone is when it's very late at night. One thing to help put fear to ease is the numerous amounts of police stands where you can press a button and the police will be there within minutes. These stands are located all throughout campus and are bright yellow with a blue light so they are very easy to find. You cannot walk for more than two minutes without seeing one. Another resource is you can actually call the UTPD if you have a far walk and its late at night to drive you to your destination if you don't feel safe. There are also student groups you can contact at all hours of the ugly and they will send someone to walk with you so you are not alone.

Greek Life: As a non-Greek I don't want to judge too harshly from the outside. You can definitely tell a Greek from a non-Greek when walking around campus. The Greeks are very cliche, very cliquey, and seem to be snooty. I do know that the Greeks participate in some amazing community service opportunities but I also know they can be very irresponsible when it comes to parties and other activities.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This university has it all. There are over 1000 clubs you can join so there is something for everyone if they want to get involved. There are such a wide range of majors that it's easy to find something that fits what you want to do. The professors are always so passionate about what they teach and you can tell they genuinely care about their students. They always make sure to explain things clearly and offer more than enough opportunities to reach them outside of class hours. The advisors on campus are life savers, I wouldn't have been able to navigate this far without their amazing help. This university really makes me feel like my needs are important instead of feeling like just another student out of 50,000. The people are friendly, the culture is fantastic, and the school is stellar. I couldn't see myself attending anywhere else.

Overall Experience: I was most looking forward to living on my own and being independent and I have that here at UT. The campus is nice and the people are friendly. The classes are pretty hard and sometimes they are too much for me to keep up with.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a large university, but you can always find a smaller group of people to connect with. There are a variety of housing options, a great football crowd, and a bunch of activities to do in and out in the city of Austin (even though I'm not much interested in parties or football). I would have rated this at "It's the best" if it asked for my particular college (The School of Architecture). This is because my "smaller group of people to connect with" is the architecture school. The faculty is enthusiastic, the students are nice, and there's always something interesting going on in the school. Plus, we have our own studio space, so there's always a place for us to call "home" in addition to our dorm/apartment.

Overall Experience: It is an academically great school, however I do not say that it is the best for me because I feel that I might have gained more from a smaller, private school

Overall Experience: The campus may be huge but the people and the environment created is similar to the small town feel. Everyone is very friendly and everyone has the own quirks and embraces them.

Overall Experience: I love the school but Austin is just not for me. I am used to a small town so the city is a little too much for me to handle.

Overall Experience: UT Austin is a large school but being involved in smaller organizations such as a sorority or a smaller major makes UT a great environment to go to college!

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!
