Local Area: Austin is a growing, bustling city with a million things happening all the time. We have festivals year round, including music festivals like Austin City Limits, Funfunfun Fest, and South By South West, as well as cultural festivals like the Pecan Street Festival and Eeyore's Birthday. The night life is a huge attraction, with people crowding 6th street every night of the week, but Halloween is a particularly big deal. In the winter there's the Trail of Lights, which takes place in Zilker Park, a lovely public park open year round. Close by is Barton Springs, which has been one of the most beloved corners of Austin for many years. The whole city lies along Town Lake, which supports canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, fishing, and bat-watching. Austin is a very health-conscious city; there are many campaigns for organic local produce and farmer's markets, as well as stores like Whole Foods, Wheatsville Co-Op, and Natural Grocers.

Technology: Many computer labs and libraries have useful programs available to everyone at no cost, but can be difficult to get a hold of especially during busy times of the semester. The limited bandwidth for personal computers is used very quickly, and buying it can be a pain as the university does not accept Visa. The network can also be very slow depending where you are on campus, but is generally alright. Printing is generally affordable. I think it is in the student's best interest to have a personal computer, but it is possible to rely on the school's.

Technology: At times the wireless internet is not all that great and you can run through your wireless availability pretty quickly if you use your internet often on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of dining options all over campus and specific buildings with food courts.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is always there and willing to help if you ask, however walking alone at night is scary considering you are in the heart of Austin and at times there are non-students on campus.

Scholarships: The experience was reasonable with its own hassles at times. At times obtaining your scholarships are hard.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing by the university is ridiculously expensive for small apartments. The apartments are nice but not worth all the expense.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The university is in the center of Austin just minutes away from the lake or downtown action. You can see the capitol from campus and the restaurants around campus provide a great atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are standard. The atmosphere and proximity to classes is great since you are in the middle of all the action.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The humidity and heat at times is frustrating, but overall the weather can be quite nice.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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!
