Weather: The weather is usually great but when it does get bad there is no getting around it. You have to walk a lot around campus and when its cold, you will be cold. Luckily it isn't cold very often.

Off-Campus Dining: I have enjoyed most of the food I've tried and I am still excited to try more. They have a lot of vegetarian options and many healthy choices. Many places near campus also accept Bevobucks which is convenient.

Off-Campus Housing: Many places are very close to campus and depending on the type of unit you want, some are even cheaper than living in a dorm. I lived in a dorm this year but I am planing to make the move to west campus next year.

Administration: They have rules that are relatively strict but depending on what they are, there are some things that you can easily get around

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The student services building is in a relatively central area on campus and offers just about any type of health care you would need. There are police call boxes located all over campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most people on campus have a lot of pride in the varsity sports and nearly everyone that goes to the gym is a part of an intramural sport. Many clubs and organizations also have their own intramural team. There are also rec sports and a rec sports gym that offers a variety of classes and competitions.

Party Scene: I don't often participate in the nightlife but 6th street has a reputation of being the place to go for a good time. There is also a service that will drive you home late at night form Thursday to Sunday.

Greek Life: I am not in any Greek society and I don't plan to be. There are many people that are that live in specific buildings and I have only heard bad things. They are loud and drunk, they smoke a lot, they come in at late hours just about everyday of the week.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttles are free and the buses are free with a school ID. There is plenty of parking for people with cars although it does cost.There is a zipcar and cars2go site on campus so that is convenient for member. The buses are nice but as with most buses they add on a lot of time to get to places that actually aren't that far away.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I have my own computer and printer so I don't need to go to the labs.

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!
