Health & Safety: On campus is very safe. Downtown is more dangerous, and west campus can be dangerous too

Greek Life: Greek life is something I wanted to be in but it's too expensive. Sometimes it's harder to get into parties and there's less social opportunities, but people don't look down on you if you aren't in it

Majors: Awesome atmosphere in McCombs, but wish there was some more attention paid to marketing instead of just finance/accounting. A lot of internships and networking events available

Scholarships: It's fairly easy but now that tuition has been raised, I am going to struggle to cover my payment.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Since it's a Health Professions focused honors program, important criteria include research/volunteer experience and high GPA/Standardized testing scores.

Diversity: UT Austin is probably one of the friendliest public schools in Texas for LGBT students. Politically, there's a heavy representation of both sides on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Housing seems to be pretty available, and at an acceptable price for living in Austin.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The people here are generally extremely friendly and willing to help each other. The greek life presence is also pretty strong.... which may or may not be to certain people's liking.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: At such a large school, most rules regarding student life are not super strictly enforced. Rules relating to dorm life depend heavily on your RA.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have absolutely loved my time here at UT. The large school atmosphere paired with the focus towards research has been a great platform for my future academic aspirations.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a whole street called "the drag" right off the side of campus. It's not a whole lot, but it is a break from the monotony of the dining hall. Food trucks are also a great place to visit if you want to try something different once in a while.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall, I have felt safe with my possessions on campus.

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!
