Health & Safety: UT has many systems in place to assure that students are safe on campus. Many campus hotlines are available 24/7 and a SURE walk system is in place that if a student is going to walk alone they can call SURE walk to have a group of students to come walk with them

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol visibility only at parties, not on campus. UT is a smoke-free campus. The Geek Life it what contributes to most of the drug and alcohol scenes.

Athletics: If you've never heard of Longhorn Football and Mack Brown.....you must live in a hole. The UT community loves everyone of their varsity sports, lighting out beloved tower is a priority. Campus roads shut down on sports days just to account for the tailgating on campus. I could say that UT has one of the most spirited schools out there

Local Area: Everything is in walking distance from UT Austin whether it be going to eat at the hip restaurants on the drag or hitting the nightlife only a short 5 min bus ride down the street. Austin always has outdoor activities such a Barton springs pool and zilker park, and i must say the hiking experience in Austin is amazing. I want to live in Austin for the rest of my life.

Greek Life: Many of the Greek students only socialize with other Greek students. They're houses are nice but they travel in packs and its kind of annoying.

Diversity: A group on campus called YCT was holding an "event" on campus called something to the extent of "catch the immigrant"The campus and community came together to stop this outrageous event to show that UT Austin is of the most racial, ethnic, and religiously diverse campuses

Off-Campus Dining: Austin's culture itself promotes various local businesses and restaurants. Of course there are the usual chain restaurants, but there are many more Austin-exclusive places to eat.

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.

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!
