5 College Freshman

Academics: For my major Radio-Television-Film, it is a great spot to be. The college of communication here is up to date and always finding ways to give students opportunities that give you real world experience.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here are challenging, in the way that they want for you to think critically about topics you may not have thought of before

Campus Quality: I have yet to find the thing that sets this campus apart from other settings. Diversity of the campus is perhaps the best thing I can conjure.

Campus Quality: There are many places to study, but since the campus is very crowded with students on most days, it is difficult to find a seat anywhere! So I usually retreat back to my dorm to study. Also, green space is almost non-existent.

Off-Campus Dining: there are many options available. But as a college student, is difficult to find healthy and cost efficient alternatives.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not involved in athletics, but I can say with confidence that everyone on campus is a devoted fan and avid support of all the athletic teams on campus!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I currently live in an off campus dorm. While it is not luxurious, it does provide great location and convenience of food in the cafeteria.

Local Area: I don't have a chance to leave campus very much, because there are always many events to partake in, on-campus. However, Austin is a vibrant city, and those who do have a chance to leave campus come back with only positive reviews. There are many museums and parks surrounding the campus area, within walking distance, which provide for a nice getaway from the campus, or substitute for a natural and peaceful study environment.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not indulge in nightlife on campus, and thus cannot provide an adequate review on this. The university is amazing at keeping student buried in coursework. Most students spend their nights(weekdays and weekends) slaving away at the library.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The current neuroscience program is a bit tedious and it is a challenge to incorporate into an already busy schedule. While it adds to the rigor of undergraduate coursework, it can at times seem burdensome atop the long list of medical pre-requisites. As the program is new to the university, there are to additional requirements to apply to neuroscience program, and I encourage all students to consider this degree option. As always, be ready to work diligently and try not to be discouraged by the round-the-clock studying!

Overall Experience: The academic enthusiasm on campus is minimal. I wish to have seen more innovative thought processes regarding real world issues, and collaborative student involvement to improve campus standards. There is a tremendous school spirit about the environment however, and it is wonderful to see current students and alumni representing the school passionately.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: As everyone knows. Austin is the "music capital" and as expected, there is always some form of concert or the other that can be attended. One major downside, as with every major city, is the traffic.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I was not required to show up with different documents like I was at my previous school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The on campus dining options are fantastic, they are multiple place to go and grab food and they offer a very diverse menu to choose from given the diversity of the university.

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!
