Administration: I would say it is fair. I haven't lived on campus but rules are pretty much abided by the students.

Campus Quality: There are many things to do on and off campus, so many organizations to join, and so many new people to meet. Our athletic program is the best too, in my opinion and by ranking. There is always something to do.

Campus Quality: We always have access to the facilities on campus; my personal favorite is Gregory Gym and the fact that it's open until 1 a.m.

Campus Quality: Some buildings are really old while some are brand new. Everything is pretty much bunched together so it is easy to get to but there are a lot of people to navigate.

Campus Quality: They try their best to make it comfortable and convenient. There are very little green spaces. Most Students hang out around the food places and the library. Tradition is a big part of what we do here.

Campus Food: There is very few options in the dinning halls and it is expensive. It is cheaper to eat fast food. There are fast food places on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Some places have great landlords some do not. I had sewage seeping up through my floors and nothing was done about it. to have the good prices you have to move a little from campus. however if you have a low budget it might be hard to find something because things are expensive. To live in the good neighborhoods, the cheapest is 725 a month. There are so many coming here that the prices have sky rocketed. If you are a freshman, it might be best to stay on campus your first year so that you can get the feel for things. Because if you wake up late chances are you might miss your class.

Administration: There is not any policies against students having fun just appropriately. If you are not in the dorm rooms you usually do not get into to trouble that much unless someone complains. When it is said that Austin is a party town, they meant it.

Academics: I have only had one professor that I would never take his class again. The curriculum is average. Some parts are engaging and some not so much. You can not have a fine for anything on campus or they will not let you register for the next semester. You have a lot of reading. So if you do not like to read. That might have to change. There are tutoring places on campus and the libraries have designated study group areas that are well equipped with white boards and TV's.

Greek Life: There are so many groups on campus that it is hard to notice one creating a difference on campus. There is one night a year that is called Sorority and Frat Round Up. They are all on campus hanging out drinking. I worked at the fast food place on campus that is pretty much 24/7 and they are very hungry. Lest to say I never worked the night shift again because there are a lot of people who come in so drunk they do not know what they are doing. They are a few housing options around campus.

Majors: I am majoring in archaeology and have learned a lot of things about the things I will be doing but have little experience doing so. Most of the classes have to take are lecture classes. Not helpful out in the field.

Majors: Getting into the program is similar to most of the other programs offered by UT. The thing to remember to make them want you. How can you make them look good outside in the real world. Will it be beneficial to let you in. Your essays are the perfect way to do this.

Health & Safety: The health services are easy to access and easy to use. The staff is very supportive and caring. The crime on campus is minimal. There are panic buttons all across campus to alert the police if necessary. The police are constantly patrolling. I have walked home by myself at 1 in the morning and I am a single female. You can go running at night and do not have to worry. The areas around campus are safe as well. They are where most of the students live off campus.

Athletics: Our football games have the highest attendance rate in the country. If you are part of the football team or the band or the cheer squad, you are performing for 100000+ fans. Our athletic complex is huge. Our gym is just as big. Sports are part of everyday life in Austin. We have our own local channel just for the university.

Campus Food: I'm not picky so I like the food options on campus. There is a lot of variety if you're willing to walk around to get to what you want.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a number of chain restaurants that are still not really fast food, which I like. There is also a decent amount of ethnic food options available.

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!
