College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in an off campus dorm

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid at my school. the scholarships I received were from outside sources, such as the National Merit Corporation.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It never snows, and it's typically pretty summer-like year round.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Unless you purchase a spot early, you won't get one or you will have to walk two miles to your car.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most students drink alcohol, particularly those involved in fraternities and sororities.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of selection in many neighborhoods for off campus housing. The closer to campus, the more expensive it is, but even if you're a little further out, UT has shuttle routes that run for free for students all around Austin, as well as free access to the City Buses. Parking on campus can be pricey but there are options, and generally you can find a parking spot somewhere.

Academics: Having Eureka as a source to seek out research outside of a FIG, FRI, or other specialty program really opens up a pool of research labs specific to neurobiology. The program itself is pretty average, and the workload is manageable. The facilites at UT are great, very comfortable and modern.

5 College Junior

Academics: All of our study areas, from liberal arts to sciences, are top tier and there isn't really one subject that is easier than any other. I find all of my classes challenging in their own regard and my professors are usually really helpful and very passionate about the subjects that they teach.

5 College Junior

Majors: The programs available at UT are the best, and there is a lot of opportunity available. All the other students want to work just as hard and we are all given fair opportunity to do so.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't go out much so I don't know too much about the drug and alcohol scene at the school. I know the RAs are trained to seek out marijuana and limit it's inside use and there are campus police, and also there are a lot of party busts for underage drinking.

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!
