5 College Freshman

Greek Life: good parties but don't have to be part of it

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is the best school in the world. I used niche to make my college decision, so I want to say that academics are incredible, although tough, and nightlife is unlike any other school since its almost right downtown.

Campus Housing: The dorms are not social and living in one freshman year is definitely a poor decision.

Overall Experience: It's pretty difficult to find your place here, especially if you are a CNS student, but still want a life. All of the organizations are exclusive and difficult to join, unless you know someone from high school. Basically, if you come to a feeder school, you'll be fine, but if you don't good luck.

Health & Safety: I mostly feel safe on campus, especially because there is always somebody walking even if it is 5 in the morning. Obviously, things can happen even when you do not expect them to so I do not feel completely safe since UT is an open campus. With that being said, I have seen a lot of emergency "stations", if you will, where you can press a button and I suppose the police will arrive. I also think that campus is big enough for someone to always be around so that makes me feel secure. I have also seen campus police riding around on their bikes and I have seen police officers on the drag which is very comforting just because if something were to happen, they might be there to help. There are also several apps that can be used nowadays where someone else, no matter where they are, can see where you are walking and so if something were to happen to you then they would be notified and that way you never technically walk alone.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors I have had have been amazing and as I mentioned before, they are very knowledgeable about what they are teaching. The courses are challenging and I really have to work hard in order to receive the grades that I want. There are a variety of courses offered and depending on the professor, class styles are different. Class sizes also differ depending on what course is chosen. If it is an elective that requires writing then it will probably be a small class. On the other hand, there could be big auditorium classes that are also for electives so it depends but they are mostly medium-sized classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think that a degree from UT can really open the doors to great opportunities all over the country. There are always employers coming to UT to give talks about certain jobs and I think that students have an opportunity to speak with important employers all the time. I have not visited the career center but I am planning on doing so in order to find a part-time job and see what other options there are for me.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I think that Greek life is very important at UT because you see Fraternity and Sorority houses everywhere and everyone always wears shirts from their Greek associations. I am currently a non-Greek and I am honestly not interested in becoming a Greek because the only thing I have seen and heard about Greek life is how cool the parties are. I am not sure what kinds of Greek housing are available but there are a variety of them.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Unfortunately, I have not attended any of the football. basketball, or other games but there is definitely school pride when it comes to sports. I think athletics at UT is a big part of the Longhorn family and it definitely brings UT students, faculty, staff, etc. together.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think the professors are very intelligent and knowledgeable. Since most of them do research and work at the clinic, they really know what they are doing and what to teach us. I think that has been the best experience so far because being able to be part of their research is very rewarding and being in their class is great!

Health & Safety: Campus carry made me feel less safe on campus. otherwise things like SUREwalk and guards on campus do make me feel safer at night

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Great staff in the school of architecture. Courses are constantly being evaluated and changed for the better of the students which is greatly appreciated. Some professors are a bit more ambiguous and unpredictable with grading.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I have not been very active in seeking career prospects but I am aware of all the programs/workshops offered and I can see that UTSOA career center is very helpful in finding jobs for students.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I live in kinsolving and it is quite convenient. Great dining hall. The market really helps. good location. I am not very involved with the dorm community.

Greek Life: Greek Life is huge but will not interfere with non-Greeks. I see very little problems in day-to-day activity but a lot of areas where Greek Life is somewhat beneficial to the community

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!
