5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus, but many of my friends do. They all love it!

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of different options for lots of different price ranges. From high end places, cooperatives, to one bedroom apartments, there is an option for everyone.

Party Scene: I would say the majority of parties are really boring. People just get wasted. There is no point to them.

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different options! We've got Indian food, Tex-Mex, Chinese, Sushi, etc. There are a ton of restaurants close to campus, and many of them will occasionally have really great student deals.

Administration: The school is certainly good about enforcing academic honor and integrity. It seems to be pretty lenient in dealing with all of the alcohol and drugs consumed on and near campus.

Scholarships: I got financial aid through a government lone. UT was helpful in presenting my loans to me and make it easy to see how much I have borrowed.

Campus Food: There are definitely tons of options. I really enjoy the buffet style of J2 and Kinsolving. You definitely get your money's worth when you go to those places. The menu tends to repeat, so the options can get a little boring, but there are always multiple options available, so you can easily shake things up. I think as long as you spend your money wisely, the money you are given with your housing plan will easily last a full year.

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is a little expensive. It cost about as much as my tuition. All of the dining options are really great, and I especially enjoyed how close my dorm was to all of my classes. I could wake up ten minutes before my classes started and still make it to them on time. The community within the dorm was not very strong. I wish they had more activities to help people get to know each other. However, I think the social atmosphere was very positive. Everyone was really nice and polite. The housing process was a little bit confusing at first, but not too bad.

Campus Housing: Overall, living in UT Tyler's campus was actually really nice. The outside walkways and natural beauty worked well for each other to provide a beautiful stroll even in the worst conditions. The outside furniture were well kept and the lakes on campus were a sight to like. In the dorms, it just felt like a bustle of activity every day. The only problem is that you can still feel really lonely very easily.

Off-Campus Housing: Its great because you have more freedom and a kitchen and bathroom to yourself with more space. But it sucks how far they are from campus.

Party Scene: I don't go to a lot of parties cause there is hardly time with all the studying, but when I do its usually with close friends, so they are small parties held at someones house and they are great. Even though I don't go clubbing, I have friends who like to go on 6th street sometimes and they seem to have a blast!

Off-Campus Dining: The places near campus are great! There is so much variety in the restaurants off campus. From typical pizza to indian food. From a food truck to korean bbq. It's really great, the only thing they're missing is authentic Mexican food.

Administration: The administration is pretty lenient when it comes to adult decisions such as having visitors in our dorms or attendance in class. However, its when students break school policies such as cheating, that they become strict which is good.

Scholarships: The school, unfortunately, is very stingy money. They wont give anything back! Whatever financial aid I receive from out of the school is all I'm getting.

Campus Housing: I've seen worse and I've seen better. The dorms here could definitely be more spacious, but they're nice enough. I just wish I had a kitchen to cook and a bathroom to myself. Other than that it is totally livable. I like that there is a dining hall inside my building, a piano for the public's use, and a study room that I can use to pull an all nighter before a test. The people here are very friendly and I feel safe. The only downside is that I'm cramped in this small room with another person for a year. I wish there was more space.

Off-Campus Housing: From what I've seen, off-campus housing seems to be a really great option.

Off-Campus Dining: If you have the cash for it, then eating off-campus is absolutely the way to go.

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!
