Party Scene: I don't like parties so I'm not the best person to review this. The party scene, however, is alive and thriving on campus. For incoming students its easy to get invited to parties (I've been invited to many) and they persist throughout the year if you're looking for a good time. My roommate is in a frat and he seems to enjoy them so I'll base my rating off of him.

Scholarships: I know many who have received financial aid. Personally I haven't received any. The scholarship application confused me the first time I looked at it. I thought there was no reason to apply because they had very specific scholarships listed that I didn't qualify for. I know now I might have received something had I applied. My advice is just to apply to any and everything.

Campus Food: I feel a little pressed for cash towards the end of the semester. There aren't enough places that take dine-in-dollars. There is "variety" at locations like J2, kinsolving, and JCL but the food isn't amazing. It isn't bad by any means but it won't make you jump for joy. Its hard to get an affordable, meaty breakfast option. They skimp on the bacon wherever you go and don't offer a lot of sausage. Also J2 and Kinsolving aren't conveniently open on the weekends causing you to spend money elsewhere for a meal that is almost guaranteed to be more expensive. I can't get breakfast before 9 on weekends in jester because nothing is open. I like to start my day early so this bothers me. That being said, I suppose things could be worse. The food could be disgusting but its not. It gets an "okay" in my book.

Campus Housing: There is a wide variety of dorms on campus. Some are extremely small while I would consider others quite spacious. The housing placement process is easy to an extent: I can fill out the forms just fine but there process isn't so clear cut in my opinion. I applied for a new residence hall this semester in what I believed to be a timely fashion and didn't receive it. I'm not sure why. A majority of the rooms look dated, which in turn gives them a certain gloomy, aged look. The renovated rooms are nice but the layout of the room seems to provide you with even less storage space. Many of your things are stored under an elevated bed, leaving your room looking cluttered for a student of average cleanliness. That said, the rooms are livable and the atmosphere makes up for it. Its great being a short hop from your friends and its nice to get together in a dorm and have a group study or gaming session.

Scholarships: I did not get as much money in financial aid as I thought I deserved. In addition, although I was in top 10% in my high school, I did not receive the $600 scholarship for it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at the dining halls is not good and there's not a lot of variety.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There's a ton of different off-campus housing options, but varies by location and cost. I don't live off campus so I can't say much.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's okay, really haven't had a bad or good experience with administration yet so things are neutral.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I don't qualify for financial aid so awkward.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining halls are okay, they get old after awhile but that's expected. There's a bunch of other places in the Union and SAC like Chik-fil-A, Taco Bell, places like that. Pretty good variety overall. The meal plan doesn't last all year, definitely be prepared to either add more money or bring your own food.

Off-Campus Dining: Austin as a ton of different, rad restaurants. The price can get a little expensive, and the Drag makes it pretty convenient. You can use the Hooked app for deals for a bunch of places, which is great!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing on UT is pretty decent, it's convenient to get to class. If you're a girl, I recommend Littlefield - the bathrooms are the best. Kinsolving has the best dining hall in my opinion. The only problem is the northern dorms are farther away from Gregory Gym.

Campus Food: Its best to eat at Wendy's as its cheap and nice. If you want to have really good food than halal Bros is the best option on campus and one of my personal favourites!

Campus Housing: Very thing is pretty close by. The drag is so nearby that you dont have to worry about weather meal plan are offered or not! Campus life can be enoyed only when you live on campus!

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on what you're looking for, there's probably something for you. There are cheaper options, but that puts you further away from campus. To me, cheaper is worth the extra few minutes it'll take me to get to class

Party Scene: I'm really not much of a partier and don't have friends that party so if I want to party I go hang out with my friends at Texas State.

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!
