3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive financial aid, but I did receive a $2000 scholarship per semester, which I am grateful for. It makes me mad that I didn't receive anything for National Merit however.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: If I could describe Austin, I would say, "active, strange, and different." Coming from the suburbs, I found
Austin to be a nice change. There are always events going on like Austin City Limits, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Trail of
Lights, etc. The music scene is pretty good as well. If you don't have a car, taking the CapMetro around is doable.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Attending the football games is part of every Saturday in the fall. Our volleyball team is one of the best in the country. Sports are a big deal at UT.

4 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't ever see the police unless they are breaking up a party or downtown. I don't think I have ever seen an on campus police officer.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus is very convenient but it takes about the same time as walking so I almost always walk unless it is cold or raining.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but I have friends who do and they wish they lived off campus like me.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Being involved in Greek Life is a huge part of having a social life at UT. Its is totally worth it and I would recommend it.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The main street right off of campus is packed with various restaurants and other streets around campus have even more options.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I am from a small town where I grew up as the only Jewish person in my school. At UT I have met so many Jewish people or people from other religious backgrounds.

Campus Quality: The football games are great and the libraries are extremely helpful and a good place to study.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The professors are amazing. Almost all of my professors taught at highly rated private or ivy league colleges and I am taught by them for in state tuition costs.

Campus Food: I do not live on campus so I almost never eat on campus.

Health & Safety: It feels unsafe to walk on or around campus at night but have not actually had any issues.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never had a concern about safety on campus. Even though UT is a public university they take many steps to ensure safety. There are many police emergency call stations around campus and it is also very well lit at night.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You have a wide variety of dorms to choose from at the University. There are fairly new dorms but there is also very old dorms. They all are relatively close to classes and not very strict at all. They offer great studying areas and usually there are events occurring such as movie nights or karaoke parties.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls and guys on campus are very diverse and allow great options to choose from. The interest of the students are always interesting and intriguing and the dress is usually causal but very creative. Many relationships between opposite sexes, whether friends or boyfriend/ girlfriend, appear to be very good and fun.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is very close to classes, near many amenities, and is relatively new and updated. Some of the cons however are that cost are somewhat high and parking may be difficult and costly. Lots of students tend to share bedrooms to lower the cost.

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!
