5 College Senior

Overall Experience: UT is the best school I could have ever chosen! It's the perfect balance of academics, athletics, social life, and life-changing experiences. It's truly a well rounded school. Love football, basketball, volleyball or baseball? We've got top ranked programs for that. If you like playing, there are club sports, IM sports, and people that just play for fun. If you are studying business, science, or engineering, chances are you'll be in a top ranked program (top 20 for sure), among other majors. People here are fun loving, attractive, and friendly. You'll love it here!

Overall Experience: The campus amazing. Great food, great places to study, good bus accessibility for when you don't want to walk. It's also very easy to find help, whether it be with academic or career advising, paper editing, or tutoring.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has got amazing classes and professors and truly challenges its students without it being too excessive. It is a little hard to make friends-many people are friendly, but there are also those who are not(you'll find that anywhere). The location is great for going out or simply wanting to read at the park. Personally, I wanted to go to a different university, but it was out of my budget, however this is still a great University!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The college experience at University of Texas at Austin has been amazing. It's like as if every one of your friends has become your neighbor and conversing with them has become a face-to-face activity instead of simply texting/messaging. Although UT Austin may be a large school, once you become integrated into a community you can easily make many new friends. The only reason why I wouldn't come to UT Austin if I had the chance again would be because of receiving a full scholarship to a different school I applied for.

Overall Experience: I didn't realize how diverse the people are in my classes until I arrived. Everyone has different interests in art, and thus it was very hard for the teachers to grade our projects.

4 Recent Alumnus

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.

5 College Freshman

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?

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!
