Overall Experience: This school has the best communication and business programs in the country. I wouldn't our efforts against anyone else.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus in a while. Honestly, the school's own living resources are so encompassing that the only reason to live off-campus would be preference.

Weather: It rains a lot in Austin, now that the weather is getting cooler. So far, classes have not been cancelled at all, unless the professor had to cancel for their own reasons. UT is a very big campus, but I choose to walk for my daily exercise and I'm okay with walking to my classes. But when the weather is nice, the campus looks really beautiful and it's a nice walk.

Guys & Girls: Guys here are not bad. I stay away from the frat daddies, but other than that cool dudes can be found. The girls on the other hand are bountiful and beautiful. Can't really top a Texas girl.

Party Scene: Well this is an easy one. It's Austin! I mean come on... Sixth Street? Live music? You know you're bound to have a blast when you come to Austin.

Off-Campus Housing: Here in Austin, the price of living is way too high, therefore I live in Round Rock, a suburban city. Availability and convenience are fair. Parking is slightly low however, due to the compact nature of the city.

Majors: I have not started shadowing yet, but being that I am a pre-med student I hope to very soon. I have been getting into contact with different offices and hopefully will start soon. It seems to be an easy and comfortable process thus far. I think this will be a great eye opening experience and allow me insight into the medical world.

Majors: I enjoy biology and chemistry and how everything has a function and a role and how things are interconnected. I love learning about the things that are pertinent to everyday life. I would do it over if I could. I hope to attend medical school and am thinking about going into neurology. My only concern right now is the health care situation going on in our country right now.

Drug Safety: I've never heard of anyone getting busted for drugs on campus or at a party, so I don't think the drug scene is very big here.

5 College Junior

Technology: There are SO many buildings that have computers and they are all free of charge to UT students. Having a laptop is just for convenience so that you don't have to leave your room to study somewhere.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The campus food is good, you just get sick of it because you have to eat at the same places everyday and everything just seems to start blending together. I think the University allots enough money for the year, students just don't know how to budget without their parents around and run out of money quickly.

Transportation: Anywhere you need to be in Austin is either walking distance or accessible by a bus which is FREE to anyone with a college ID!

Administration: I've never had an issue with the campus police, then again I've never done anything to provoke them either.

Campus Quality: UT has endless studying areas and hang out areas! We have a number of on campus gyms which are free to all with a UT ID and there is ALWAYS something to do on campus!

Diversity: One of Austin's slogans is "Keep Austin Weird" except here it's not weird. Weird ceases to have a definition here because at the end of the day we are all just people.

Greek Life: Most non-Greeks are indifferent for the most part about Greeks but every so often you come across that person that was rejected and sees all Greek organizations as snobbish and cliquey. It doesn't really matter if you're in a sorority or fraternity, you can still show up at their parties and they typically let you in. Most sorority girls just get made fun of for their attire.

Party Scene: UT is on the top ten list for best party schools, enough said.

Academics: I absolutely LOVE being an Italian major at UT. It is the best! There is never a long wait for advising because the program is so small, my advisor and I are pretty much on a first name basis and everyone is so incredibly helpful and always willing to accommodate to all of my needs. Everyone I've met in my department seems genuinely concerned about my future!

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!
