4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UT campus encompasses every conceivable type of individual, from the intimidatingly intellectual to the individualistic artists to frat stars who must've done exceptionally well on the SAT. Simply being apart of this thriving environment with its admirable openness and diversity is something I surely do not take for granted. I realize the immense opportunities I am provided and I know I will not take these for granted as I move forward in my academic career.

Administration: The campus does not shove its rules down your throat. However the rules are there so there isn't complete anarchy.

Off-Campus Dining: Really great food. Kismet and Torchy's are by far the best.

Campus Food: There is a pretty good variety. The service is good, hours should be later though, dining hall closes at 7pm which at college is way to early.

Campus Quality: I love UT - Austin. The people who attend, the staff and faculty, the programs and organizations. I am involved and connected and it was very easy to do so. I have found many departments where I have needed questions answered and the people working in those departments went above and beyond to help. I have a terrific academic advisor and I am plugged into several groups.

Campus Quality: I utilize the fitness center several times a day. It is more than adequate and provides workout time as well as friend time. I am involved in a couple of different Christian groups and I love it. I also have been active in a weekly study group that I got a great deal out of.

Campus Housing: The housing I have lived in has been cramped for two people but I have enjoyed the overall experience. I really like the close proximity to my classes, the social aspects of being with friends, and the access to the workout facility. Since I know this living situation is temporary I like it fine. I wish parking were more plentiful.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
