Greek Life: It can be a good and bad thing. It is a very bad influence for partying, but it also brings together a good community.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus is great. It gives you independence, but it also forces you to have some discipline. You have to care for yourself, and learn how to manage your roommates.

Scholarships: Financial aid is the most easiest thing you could possibly do to receive money. It takes very little time, and the outcome is very large.

Off-Campus Housing: I didn't like dorm because of rules and food limitation.

I think it is better to live off-campus for life experience

Local Area: The city of Austin has something to offer for everyone; it's diverse, fun and unique. Going downtown with friends, there is always something to do: from hitting the bars on 6th to going to concerts. There are also many beautiful parks around the city, and of course the food is legendary.

Guys & Girls: If you're not Greek, you have a more difficult time finding people who are interested in talking to you. It's a big school, though, so just about every demographic and social group is represented if you can find them.

Campus Food: The dining hall food is good but expensive and has little variety. There are also on-campus food stores that take Bevo Bucks, which is nice.

Athletics: School spirit is a huge part of life at UT, and most people attend the games - that said, it's okay if you don't.

Scholarships: I received an honors scholarship. The website for finding scholarships is helpful, but the financial aid office is usually very busy and rarely responds quickly to questions or requests.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I'll never understand why people would ever complain about a lack of diversity on this campus. Walking around campus you see every type of person you can imagine. I, myself, am a multiracial person and could find my people quite easily. Inclusion, however, is a different story. Like anywhere, even here at UT Austin campion of diversity.. Students still tend to exclusively hang around their ethnic counterparts. Whites with whites, hispanics stick together, blacks do too.

Administration: Just do what you're supposed to do, don't get caught if you do something wrong, and you'll be fine.

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!
