Administration: I've only see people get busted for breaking rules once or twice, and UTPD rarely makes it an issue that extends off campus grounds.

Technology: The Wi-Fi can be spotty in certain areas of campus but is generally okay. The biggest issue is running out of bandwidth regularly and having to buy more each month.

Athletics: I'm not really into athletics.

Weather: Always check the weather when going out. It's a little unpredictable here. Some days you'll be wearing a coat and sweatpants in the morning, but a t-shirt and shorts later on. (Slight exaggeration)

Majors: It is the hardest major at UT. STUDY STUDY STUDDY

Majors: I'm pretty happy with the computer science program. I'm not sure where my career is going, but I know computer science is a huge field at the moment and I'm not terribly worried about anything.

Majors: I'm not sure what criteria allowed me into the program. All I can say is put everything you can imagine on the application pertaining to your education/career skills.

Administration: High rank college with pretty girls, what more can you ask for?

Drug Safety: On most weekends at night, you can smell the drugs and alcohol coming off of people who are returning from parties. Peer pressure associated with drugs isn't really common, but at most parties, drinking is pretty much required to have fun.

Guys & Girls: People around are generally relaxed and dress comfortably (especially in the Texas heat). Parties are huge, but there are many more activities to do around here to socialize.

Local Area: I love the city of Austin. There is a sort of "bubble" that I don't leave too often that includes all of campus and west campus. I don't have a car down here this year, but I will next year. What's cool about Austin is that it's such a college town near campus, but it's also a really cool city outside of campus.

Technology: At UT, you get access to wireless internet for free with your tuition. The only downside is that you can use up all of the bandwidth you are given, and you may have to buy more. It's only $5 a semester though, so it's not too bad.

Administration: I live in an off-campus dorm, so I'm not exactly sure what the on-campus dorms are like as far as strictness goes. In my dorm, University Towers, I would say they are very lenient on alcohol use and underage drinking. Visitation is pretty lenient, and noise violations are pretty lenient

Weather: NO BETTER WEATHER IN THE WHOLE UNITED STATES! i will vouch for that all day long!!! Austin just has perfect weather. Of course it gets too cold in the winters and too hot in the summers, but the winters are milder than most places.

Party Scene: TEXAS IS LITERALLY #1 IN THIS CATEGORY! All of my friends who go to other schools come to visit here and are amazed by the incredible party scene. The fraternities here all throw really fun parties, and 6th Street is always a good time! Honestly, if you have a fake ID that looks somewhat like you, odds are that you'll be allowed to drink. It is not difficult to acquire alcohol. If you're someone that wants to avoid the party scene, do not live in west campus!! North campus is much quieter.

Off-Campus Dining: Being a vegetarian, I often struggle to find good places to eat. Austin, however, is the perfect place for me to be living. There are soo many super yummy vegetarian restaurants, and a large amount of restaurants offer a variety of vegetarian options on their menu.

Transportation: There are campus shuttles running all day, every day, and although I don't personally choose to use them very much, I know that so many of my friends/classmates do. I tend to only use the campus shuttle when it's unbearably cold or hot outside and I have a far walk. The public transportation is also very convenient. Living in Austin, I got to 6th Street pretty regularly. Not having a car and knowing that I will probably be drinking is never an issue because I know I can just take the bus to and from. It's free and cheaper than cabs.

Health & Safety: We have a big campus, so I don't expect there to be a police officer on every corner. Walking home very late, however, is sometimes a bit frightening. Nothing in particular has happened that makes me scared, and I would say that I feel more comfortable walking around the UT campus than I would anywhere else.

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!
