2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Washers are nearly always broken, and there are raucous parties nearly every hour of the day. Would not recommend.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: i dunno. I'm not involved in Greek life - the little i hear about it comes from other students in honors.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since I don't currently participate in intramural or varsity sports, i don't have too much of an opinion here. however, Gregory Gym is great for the average student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes overall, especially for honors students, are quite good. The professors are all helpful, at least those whom I've experienced. However, nearly all the housing for the university is either extremely overpriced, an hour or so away from campus, or both. On campus housing is particularly bad.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I'm very one-sided. I HATE living in dorms. I find them to be very small and just not home-y enough. I never lived on campus but had friends that did. I would hate sharing a room if I lived on campus because it's extremely small and feels as if everyone is in your space.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I'm not part of Greek life but I have some friends that are. They say that they have to be committed to helping the community and they are judged very harshly when first rushing. Some Greeks don't allow alcohol or partying. There are a variety of sororities and fraternities to choose from. From what I can tell, people who are apart of Greek life love it!

5 College Senior

Athletics: Attending any sports games brings about unity and intense school spirit. Everyone is cheering together and having a great time. Sometimes our school will lose but the students and faculty still support our athletes and provide encouraging words on social media. Nobody is ever put down because we know how hard our athletes work to make our school proud. The athletes are very well taken care of and are supported throughout the games. It's an amazing experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at Austin is the epitome of opportunities. As a student at The University of Texas at Austin, I have found myself getting involved in extensive research and while being able to balance school work, a job, and two internships. UT Austin has taught me that ANYTHING is possible and that you can make the grades you want, hang out with friends, and get enough sleep to function. I've never been continuously challenged emotionally, mentally, and intellectually until I came here. I've learned more about myself than any other obstacle life has thrown at me. UT shows you that there are millions of different paths you can take to get to where you want to be in life. I now want to pursue graduate school and conduct research - something I'd never thought I would become so passionate about. I'm so glad I chose Texas because if I could do this over again, I would chose Texas again and again. By the time you graduate, you'll have befriended multiple professors, students from different majors, and graduate students in your field. When you leave UT, you will be intellectually stronger and you will be ready to change the world.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It good for the most part.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great professors on campus. A lot of them are very active with their students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UT has great and many opportunities for its students.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's great to live on campus.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very cliquey.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so proud to be a UT Longhorn. There is no where else I'd rather be. I made a great choice in school.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have been here for 2 years and I have never felt unsafe on the campus at any time of the day or night. Security is present and visible and phones are all over campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I can in as a transfer student from a two year college and wondered what the differences would be. I was pleasantly surprised to find that most of my professors were willing and did encourage relationships. I was able to meet with them when necessary. The classes were not huge as I thought they would be. I have had a couple of professors I would not rank very high but by far the majority has been a great experience.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: In my field my classes already connect me with future internship opportunities. Networking is key and very doable on this campus. The University has an outstanding reputation of graduating students who are equipped and ready to start working in the real world. The alumni connection is very strong.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: As far as location and interacting with people, I loved my experience in campus housing. It was so convenient. I did not mind the dining experience, it was ok. The dorm rooms are old and small.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I am personally not involved in the Greek life but have friends that are. I think that they represent our campus well.

4 College Junior

Athletics: It will eventually be the best. Recent coaching and athletic director changes have set us back a bit but we are on the right track.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love this University and all that it offers. I get frustrated with registering and with classes not being available but overall I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's the University of Texas, there's not much to say about that. Football's big, the stadium's big, game days are big, etc. etc. College football has a pretty big scene here.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've had a good experience with health services when I hurt myself playing soccer, and they helped my friend out well when he reacted badly to peanuts in his food. I'm not sure about sexual assault topics but Voices Against Violence is rising up and speaks out a lot for those topics.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Engineering: Some professors love their subject and are captivating. Others may know their subject but are terrible teachers. Many are very into their research so may not really care about teaching....... but then why are we paying to go to a good school if we're just scraping by knowledge-wise?

I took a field seminar with the Environmental Science major and was blown away by the interactiveness and how much I learned. I knew those people better in a semester than I knew anyone in my major after two years. I REALLY miss that. Professors cared a lot about their subject too and loved teaching.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: A lot of people get jobs. It's a texas school so engineering is geared towards oil and gas. But I prefer alternative energy and research so it's much more difficult to get jobs you care about as an individual. The career center is definitely geared more towards oil and gas/tech jobs, rather than a wide array. The business career center is supposedly a lot more useful... but I can't access it because I'm not a business student.

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!
