5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: 6th Street is so much fun on Thursday nights

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Rowdy parties. frat parties. house parties. UT is known as a party school, also 6th street is always live.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Austin is a foodie paradise. You will find a restaurant that fits your tastebuds. There are apps that offer discounts on off-campus dining, so dining shouldn't be a worry.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It depends on who the officer is, but generally the campus police I've seen have been relatively nice.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no problem with my financial aid. I turned in my FAFSA and accepted the aid I wanted. Simple. However, UT is notorious for being stingy with their money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining halls are okay, the menu is pretty consistent which gets boring after a while. There are some "markets" in dorms that supply frozen food. There are some fast food restaurants available at the Union or SAC, and also the "Drag" has plenty of dining options at decent prices, apps such as Hook'd or Tastebuds offer deals on certain restaurants at discounted prices making eating out relatively cheaper on a college budget.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at UT are pretty much hit-or-miss depending on what your personal preferences are. I lived in Duren, a newer dorm in the north side of campus and enjoyed it, however the walk to campus is longer compared to the more "popular" dorm Jester.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: there needs to be more variety in the restaurants. there are two chick fil a's and two wends. stuff closes too early.

Campus Housing: it was nice freshman year to live close

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in a sorority but I have a lot of great friends who are.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always something going on!

3 College Sophomore

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!
