4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is one of the best programs in the country. Basketball is improving!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: UT is always looking after the safety and well being of all of its students and staff. UT is always promoting safe sex, coming forward if sexually assaulted, and will make sure you are taken care of. The campus police are very courteous and always there to help.

Overall Experience: The courses are by no means easy, however, the professors/TAs are excellent at teaching. There is a wide variety of classes from your typical college classes to Russian sci-fy. The major courses such as chemistry 301 are huge lecture classes with 400ish students. Once you get down to major specific classes, they get much smaller to roughly 20 students. A lot of the classes are flipped, meaning you do an online learning module then the professor goes over it.

Overall Experience: A degree from UT is one of the best in the nation. It puts you above most of the competition because employers know just how challenging UT is. Internships are easy to find. The alumni network is huge. The campus holds many job expos with top companies in a variety of fields.

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is pretty good. Kind of expensive, but keep in mind of the location you are in. The RAs are super nice and try to keep everyone engaged. The rooms are nice (some are still being renovated) and have a decent size to them. If you need lots of space, it may be an issue. The on campus food is close by to most of the dorms.

Greek Life: There is a lot of great fraternities and sororities here. They include social (the ones we all think of) and academic. If your looking for Greek life, UT has tons to offer.

Athletics: UT has one of the greatest athletic programs in the country. The facilities are up to date and look amazing. The coaches are some of the best in the nation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, UT is an amazing school. Every student here brings something to the table such as ideas, creativity, or even a smile to class everyday. It is definitely a challenging school, but that is what makes UT one of the leading schools in the world. UT encourages every student to be engaged in class and/or clubs and organizations. The professors are great at teaching and researching new ideas. The spirit on campus is beyond any other school (especially at the football games). You cannot beat UT.

Health & Safety: UT Austin is a big campus, but the UTPD is very visible at all hours of the night. The officers are also very quick to respond to issues (coming from an RA who is actively in contact with them!).

Overall Experience: Some professors are absolutely fantastic. I've found that the physics and math departments have some rather interesting characters that aren't exactly hired for their teaching abilities, but they do a great job of sharing complex knowledge with you.

Overall Experience: UT Austin is a huge research university and I don't think I've heard a single comment about degree-holders not being able to get into their field post-graduation.

Greek Life: I'm sure those involved in Greek life love it. We have a huge negative mindset as non-Greeks toward Greek life, but it's clear that they are enjoying themselves as part of whichever organization they are in!

Athletics: I'm not a sports person, but it's clear that the Longhorns take it seriously. School spirit is amazing, but the team performance lately has been a bit of a letdown for most.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UT Austin does an amazing job at making sure there is something out there for everyone. I've had some intimidating professors for sure, but all of them strive to make themselves available and their classwork be manageable. The school spirit is insane, too.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's bad compared to other schools

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!
