Campus Quality: UT Austin's student facilities are very nice. I love the gym and workout areas. I went to our first football game and the stadium is great.

5 College Freshman

Majors: As a business major I'm very excited to be at the McCombs School of Business. It's a top ranked school and I'm hopeful that when I graduate I will be able to get a job. I am a Freshman and in my first semester of classes, but I love my professors and their openness to the students.

Health & Safety: I am a Freshman and new to campus, but I don't feel unsafe. I take the necessary precautions that I would take at any campus. I keep personal valuable items out of site or locked up and I prefer to walk with a friend when not on campus. I do not feel afraid to walk to my classes by myself, however, my classes are all during the day.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants within walking distance that provide a variety of food. Of course there are fast food chains, but there are many healthy options and "local" eateries. One of my favorite places is "http://www.kerbeylanecafe.com" - it's open all night and the prices are reasonable. If you run out of restaurants in walking distance - which might take a while - as a student you can take the public bus for free and start visiting other local places with just about any type of food you are craving.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It's Texas! It's hot 3-4 months of the year - ok very hot on many days! However, the remaining 8-9 months of the year are mostly wonderful. The campus is beautiful and its nice to get outside and walk.

5 College Freshman

Majors: As a business major, I plan to look for an internship. After just hearing that I was accepted into the McCombs School of Business, I had two different professionals offer me their business card and asked me to contact them in the spring for a possible summer internship. I think think this speaks very loudly for the strict criteria used just to gain admittance into the UT Austin business school and based on this, I am very hopeful to finding an internship.

Parking: I don't have a car and have been able to get around just fine. Everyone walks in Austin.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Austin is one of my favorite cities in the country. Not only does it have the University of Texas, but it also has so much more to offer. The natural beauty of Austin's rolling hills and lakes make it extremely unique, and Austinites are proud of it! The food is to die for, whether it's Salt Lick barbecue or from a trendy food truck. Austin is also the live music capital of the world, bringing in a plethora of different artists for events like Austin City Limits and South by Southwest.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's just about impossible to run out of things to do in Austin, with all of its live music performances, organizations, and parties. There's a place for everyone here, and people are kind enough to hold the door open for you here. There are numerous restaurants and food chains, as well as intramural sports teams you can join.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The place to eat are very easy to find. There are a lot of option to choose from and most of the places are fairly affordable.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: the process of getting into the theater and dance major was fairly easy. I didn't have to do a special application process when applying for the school.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid, but it has been a trial. My financial was messed up because of the mistakes that occurred. i would recommend that you continue to call and check on your financial aid status especially during the summer.

Campus Housing: University housing was one of my better experiences. The atmosphere was always hospitable and friendly. Additionally, the facilities are always top of the line.

3 College Junior

Administration: UT does not tolerate any nonsense. This is not necessarily a bad thing though, because it exhibits the character of the students they want to educate.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at UT is a great place to branch out and have a good time while developing life-long friendships.

Campus Food: Campus food is usually pretty great. They always have multiple options for vegetarians and a variety of different types of cultural options. It runs a little expensive though, and students who live off campus aren't eligible for meal plans.

5 College Junior

Local Area: Austin is one of the most amazing cities I've ever been to. From the accepting atmosphere, the crazy and eclectic people, the funky shops, plethora of amazing food, and an amazing University to tie it all together, you really can't do better for a fantastic college city.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: Nightlife at UT is alive and well. From frat parties to house parties, downtown for 21+, there's always something going on. Music venues are a plenty and there's almost always some kind of late night happenings on campus.

Weather: Texas is HOT HOT HOT. Which means walking on the 50 acres can be quite a challenge during the early fall months. Staying hydrated is key to being successful because it's really easy to wear yourself out.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm in the Liberal Arts college as a Economics major and I'm enjoying it so far. The professors I've had up to this point has been amazing and super helpful and very good educators. The workload hasn't been too bad, but I heard it gets harder so we'll see. As for job opportunities, there has been workshops and stuff to help you out, but most of it is going to have to come out of your own effort and through networking.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It is very challenging with a heavy workload but at least you never get bored and always have something to do.

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!
