Weather: The weather is extremely hot and humid.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking here is an absolute nightmare. I mean that in every sense. Pray to God that you can find parking anywhere.

Drug Safety: It happens; at every college, students are going to do drugs and drink, but so far I have felt no pressure in having to do anything I was not comfortable with.

Academics: You really have your work cut out for you when you come here. But every hour you put in is truly worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is what really drives students insane here. It is a lot to handle.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I do not eat on campus hardly ever, but when I do I really do not have a problem with anything.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel great while on campus! I really cannot complain about the safety here.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics here at UT are what truly drives students here. It is so great to be surrounded by passionate fans!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: For the price that I am paying, I cannot complain. But the commute is killer. I wish I could afford something much closer to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is great don't get me wrong, but the pricing is what kills you.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It really does not get any better.. UT has the most attractive people I have ever seen.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity at UT is big, however students tend to group up with people of the same ethnicity/race. The Koreans stick together, the Desi stick together, the Mexicans stick together, and so on. Of course, that's for the most part. I don't know why this happens, but people in UT just tend to cluster like that. Overall, the population is very liberal and accepting of others. I think that students are definitely not afraid of being who they truly are here in UT because there's such a large population that everybody finds their "group".

Greek Life: If you're interested in Greek life, there's definitely plenty of options available. There's the traditional sororities and fraternities that you see in the movies and some other low-key ones. Some of them are even race-exclusive. I think that for the most part, non-Greeks tend to think negatively of Greek students, whom tend to display a sassy, stuck up behavior (not all of them, of course). Most Greek houses are located not too far from campus and are always location for parties on weekends.

1 College Freshman

Parking: There aren't any parking spaces available hardly ever and the prices are outrageous compared to other Texas Universities.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Drugs and alcohol and the honor code are the most enforced but the rest are still enforced just not as strictly.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Parties are everywhere but security is always right and underage drinking isn't really tolerated.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: 6th street and some of the best fraternities in the nation. I think that says it all.

4 College Freshman

Academics: McCombs business school is one of the top business schools in the world and also our communication school is ranked very high and one of the best in the nation.

5 College Freshman

Academics: One of the top universities in the world.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything you need is within walking distance and the buses and taxis can also take you places if you need to venture off campus but having a car is still more convenient in my opinion.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: the student health center is great! They can usually get you in pretty quickly given the size of the campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is huge at UT Austin. Great parties but separates the Greeks and non Greeks by a lot.

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!
