5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in one of the newest dorms that has private bathrooms so it's pretty awesome! I also live on the top floor so I have high ceilings. My dorm is pretty quiet as far as partying or just loud visitors, but the RA's are always hosting events for us!

Local Area: The city I'm in, Austin is very awake. There's always students walking around everywhere and there's so much to do. You can go to Zilker and paddleboard or go shopping on Guadalupe or at Barton Creek Mall.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is much less touted than in the past. It is very pronounced and visible. Most non-Greeks are tolerant. The non-social fraternities/sororities are becoming more numerous eg religious, science, trades etc

Administration: I've never had trouble with administration. I think as long as you respect them, and don't intentionally give them a hard time and break the rules, then there's nothing to worry about.

Campus Housing: I lived in an off campus dorm, so my only knowledge is when I'm visiting friends in theirs. The social atmosphere I think is the best. That's a place where you can meet a lot of people.

Health & Safety: I like that we have the "police boxes" where you can press the call button, and campus police will show up immediately. You can even ask them to take you home if you feel threatened.

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!
