University of Texas is a diverse location filled with many intellectuals. There are a lot of people with unique mindsets and the professors are willing to teach. Most of my teaching assistants are cool and helpful because they hold review sessions and clarify the professor's words in the discussion sections. The resident assistants are very cool and friendly as well.However, I notice that sanitation is a problem here. People are coughing right and left in my classes without covering them. For me, it is okay if we only have a few coughs, but it feels like a pandemic here. Studets need to learn to not cough directly on others the whole class period and flush the toilet. Otherwise it is a great campus.

While being a freshmen and a minority my hopes weren't too high for this university. I wasn't too sure of what I would make of it or if I would connect with like-minded individuals. However, the first week living here amazed me. Tons of people are everywhere, students are friendly and the vibe is great. The education and professors are engaging, well mine are and I am already involved with volunteer work and student organizations. The party scene is great with many yearly attractions and the food is awesome around campus. I enjoy this school and Austin. UT ROCKS!!!
