3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: If I could do it over again, I'd live in the dorms. They're s***ty, but better than The Castilian - my current residence.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Lots of the greeks are nice but they overshadow everything else going on at UT at all times

5 College Freshman

Athletics: If sports are important to you, than UT is a good place to be. Sports are taken very seriously here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't recommend going to the University of Texas unless you plan on going greek. There is life outside of greek life here, but you'd be kidding yourself if you said the school didn't still revolve around greek life and events.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Throughout the daytime and nighttime during the week, the UTPD is always monitoring the campus to make sure it is a safe learning environment for everyone!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The coursework at this university can definitely be overwhelming, but not impossible. The professors I have dealt with are passionate, hard working, and motivating people who challenge their students academically; great faculty in this university!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was blessed with the opportunity to study in one of the best public universities in the entire world! Through alumni networking and the value of a degree from this school, the chances of getting a secured job is high.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing is a bit pricey and my dorm is a little too far from my classes. It was a good experience to live in a dorm my first year here, but I definitely will be moving to an apartment next year.

Greek Life: Unfortunately, the university itself is not in unison as much as it could be because of Greek life but Greek life is a great way to get involved with community service while also getting the chance to meet a lot of interesting people!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: School spirit is vital when you are a student at the University of Texas at Austin. The stadium and courts are always filled with students, faculty, and parents in their burnt orange and white in full support of the school!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My school is diverse and filled with many ambitious people from various different backgrounds. The learning environment, school spirit, Greek life, and overall college experience at the University of Texas at Austin is great.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the school, there are many programs that can help you succeed in the courses that you take

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There is a huge variety of greek life. From fraternities to sororities, there is greek life for different races and different sexualities. I have never been involved with greek life, but I always see them at their booths on campus to advertise their fraternity/sorority and persuade people to join.

Athletics: I am not really involved in athletics at my university. I also do not often watch sports. But what I know about the athletics at my school is that our football teams need to get better, our volleyball team is amazing, and our women's basketball team is beyond amazing. Every year, my school will host a spirit rally where all the students gather up and walk down the university streets cheering whilst the marching band plays their instruments. I remember waking up from the marching band in the morning when I was in my dorm, and hearing the students shout and cheer at night, showing their huge school spirit. Sports is a huge spectacle over at the University of Texas, and going to the home games is always energetic and fun.

Overall Experience: The University of Texas (UT) at Austin has a lot of diversity which makes me proud to say that my school is unique and diverse. My school is in the middle of downtown Austin, in the heart of Texas. Being in the middle of downtown allows students to not only explore the campus, but to also explore the downtown area. The downtown area has a huge variety of popular restaurants, scenic areas, public music, and beautiful art. You can never be bored while going to school at UT Austin. Not only is UT located in an area with many things to do, but UT is also ranked in the top 10 for business school and engineering school. As an electrical engineer, I am proud to be going to the University of Texas at Austin. My favorite experience was being in a few organizations at UT Austin. These organizations and events have allowed me to meet new friends whom I can always rely on to this day. If I went back in time, and had to apply for college again, I would definitely choose the University of Texas at Austin and my same major all over again, because I am happy with where I am currently at now in life.

Campus Housing: Have lived in the Duren Residence Hall for my freshman year. I have no complaints. The RAs are amazing and always have events for us, and the community on my floor is great.

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!
