Party Scene: so much to do and events going on all the time. don't need to be part of the greek system to have a good time. UT students can definitely work hard and play hard. Oh, and being in the live music capital of the world is also a plus!

Off-Campus Housing: SO EXPENSIVE ITS UNREAL. But it has become a norm for us UT students that we just have to deal with. Also if your bike isn't double locked and you leave it in one place for more than a week, your chances of it still being in one piece when you return is pretty slim.

Off-Campus Dining: I am a major foodie so I only spend way to much on dining itself. There is a great variety and really something for everything but most student discounts are offered only on the restaurants on Guadalupe through an app called Hooked. Its great. Sometimes they even give out free things.

Administration: Everything is pretty average except for parking/traffic tickets. Cops will give you tickets for anything and everything- jaywalking, biking past a stop sign, and don't test your luck with not paying for parking. 9/10 times you will get a ticket.

Party Scene: Theres really something for everyone and all close in proximity. If you're just starting college maybe the greek like is something to explore and there are plenty of house parties scattered among west campus. As you progress through college, you can then explore 6th street where it is easy to have fun with cheap drinks, loud music, and packed bars. If that's not your vibe, there is also rainey street- a unique spot where the bars were once old houses giving you a very Austin-eque vibe. There is also the east side which is more quiet and 'trendy' you may say. And even in between there are tons of music venues filled with live music constantly.

Campus Food: There are a great variety that touches different cultures, nutritional needs, and preferences. There is really something for everyone and always plenty of choices where it is incredibly difficult to get tired of one thing because there are so many options. And if you truly grow tired of one place, another cafe is only a few blocks away.

Campus Housing: Its great to be close in proximity with many students especially when you are entering college. It is a change to meet many people as well as stay up to date will all the happenings that are going on. The library, cafes, and gym are all near by making it easy to ease your way into this change of pace.

Off-Campus Housing: Austin has so many places that offer great food at a reasonable price. No matter what kind of food you are into (vegan or meat-lover) you can always find one to your liking. The service is excellent typically anywhere. The food trucks are always open (for the late-night munchies) and offer the best (and cheapest) food. Anywhere in the Austin area, food is available, it is only a matter of choosing where to go.

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!
