Health & Safety: I never hear of much campus crime and am rarely concerned about my safety.

Drug Safety: There is a pretty large amount of alcohol visibility about students at the school. Drugs are not visible in the open for the population of the school to see.

Athletics: There is a lot of student involvement and school spirit that help provide such an incredible experience when attending sport events. It gives the athletes support and motivation to excel the best that they can.

Greek Life: I personally do not like the greeks but do appreciate the parties they throw and the work that some of them do for the community. I do not like how difficult it is for freshman new to greek like to rush. Rush is intense and a little archaic... However, again, the frats do have fun parties

Guys & Girls: The guys are overall nice looking, are intelligent, funny, and for the most part kind! The look for a typical non-frat guy is a laid back look that fits in nicely with the "free" vibe of the campus. Most guys don't just want to hook up (again I said most...), and there are some truly genuine and hilarious boy-men to chill with at ut!

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining on the drag has a lot of varieties for a cheap and fast fix. If you feel like you want to venture out a little farther then the options become almost unlimited!

Guys & Girls: I am an older student, so my first impression is always how young they look to me. It seems to me to have a strong female presence. the girls seem more mature, confident and attractive overall than their male counterparts.

Off-Campus Dining: I stay up really late, so there can never be enough late night optoins to suit me, but on the other hand the availability of healthy food selections is tremendous. Austin has a very hip, liberal side - artistic too, so the food selection, especially with the food trucks, is great.

Health & Safety: I don't live on campus, but I live very close, and it seems to me that the surrounding area, the immediate area is very safe overall, and I get the same feeling about that on campus as well. for a school this size there is very little incident.

Technology: I have to say, outside of the computer labs I have found there are not a lot of printers available for easy printing, and you have to be connected to a lab availabilities by a class you are taking.

Greek Life: I have absolutely nothing to say about the greek system because I have no exposure to it at all. I have seen some chapter houses here and there, but that's about it.

Athletics: I don't pay much attention to the various types and levels of team sports. football of course is the big ticket item, and the other major sports do really well also, but there is huge fan support and school spirit in any game that I have attended.

Diversity: The only diversity that is easy to comment on is the ethnic diversity which is very obvious, and very heartening to see. ethnicities stick together yes, but they also diversify into other groups as well.

Academics: The campus is so large, so naturally there are more study accommodations than you could imagine. The curriculum could be better, especially in regard to completing the required signature class. There need to be more class space for certain classes.

Weather: It's pretty great most of the school year, when it does get cold, it's only for a couple of months at most.

Overall Experience: It's the quality of the instructors that I am constantly amazed at. In 2 years every professor I have had has been interesting, extremely well versed, and accessible. Also there are always students in every class that make a difference with their own contributions.

Transportation: I can only work off of what I see and hear, which is that all those modes of yransport are great. I have my own car and I only ever use the airport so I can only report what I hear.

Scholarships: The financial aid office is truly a surprise as to its quality. Everybody always knows the answers to any and all questions, they are extremely helpful, and somebody always comes on the line when you call. The negative is that it is hard to navigate through all the scholarship opportunities, both on the website and through the personnel in the FA office, meaning that there seems to be little accommodation available.

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!
