4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On-campus housing is not too bad. There's plenty of events and easy access to everything on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is a party going on almost every night of the week and if you don't want to party with college kids, downtown is always rocking.

Campus Food: There's plenty to eat on campus from various fast food to a dining hall.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is available everywhere. There's cheaper options about 15 minutes from campus and the more expensive is right across the street from the campus. I have lived off campus both years so far and have not regretted it at all.

Athletics: For the most part, students are involved in sports. Athletics are in a slump right now so the lack of student support is showing. But when big teams come to town, the students show up.

Local Area: There's always something to do whether it's on campus or downtown.

Party Scene: The greek life parties are seriously so much fun, they always know how to make you feel welcome even if you aren't involved with greek life. If you want to get away from that then 6th street is the place to go it has over 20 bars on one strip and it's a cool place to hang out with friends and dance the night away. Now the underage nightlife is still fun you have tons of cool restaurants to choose from and comedy clubs along with live singing at many of these places. Transportation for students is amazing the bus is free (for students) so just hop on and go to your desired destination

Technology: The computers are okay, honestly there is nothing that special about them. The computer labs are easily accessible and the printing is a little pricey so bringing printer wouldn't be a bad idea. The network reliability is good along with speed and wireless access. Me personally I would bring my own computer just because I had all my notes on it.

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!
