Administration: It's okay, really haven't had a bad or good experience with administration yet so things are neutral.

Campus Food: Dining halls are okay, they get old after awhile but that's expected. There's a bunch of other places in the Union and SAC like Chik-fil-A, Taco Bell, places like that. Pretty good variety overall. The meal plan doesn't last all year, definitely be prepared to either add more money or bring your own food.

Off-Campus Dining: Austin as a ton of different, rad restaurants. The price can get a little expensive, and the Drag makes it pretty convenient. You can use the Hooked app for deals for a bunch of places, which is great!

Campus Housing: Housing on UT is pretty decent, it's convenient to get to class. If you're a girl, I recommend Littlefield - the bathrooms are the best. Kinsolving has the best dining hall in my opinion. The only problem is the northern dorms are farther away from Gregory Gym.

Campus Food: Its best to eat at Wendy's as its cheap and nice. If you want to have really good food than halal Bros is the best option on campus and one of my personal favourites!

Campus Housing: Very thing is pretty close by. The drag is so nearby that you dont have to worry about weather meal plan are offered or not! Campus life can be enoyed only when you live on campus!

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on what you're looking for, there's probably something for you. There are cheaper options, but that puts you further away from campus. To me, cheaper is worth the extra few minutes it'll take me to get to class

Campus Food: The food is pretty good overall but it gets tiring quick. I just wish there was more variety.

Campus Housing: I love how close it is to all my classes. That's the best thing about living on campus. The only bummer is I got paired with a random roommate and it wasn't a great match.

Greek Life: I believe greek life is blown way out of proportion. I'm not in Greek life, but I have been around people who are in it and have been to some parties and honestly I think the only reason there is a big hype over it is because we live in the south. It's fun at first, but the themed parties and socials get old quickly.

Off-Campus Housing: The newer housing options are VERY expensive, and I find that they often build them and cut corners. The materials and appliances they install could be of better quality. There are some cheaper options, but usually the quality of those are ok.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off-campus dining options. Many options are within walking distance or 10 minute driving distance.

Administration: UT is notoriously strict when it comes to academics. Any cheating or plagiarism is usually caught and punished. As far as social lives, UT encourages practicing safe alcohol consumption for those 21+, and advocates for the prevention of sexual violence or assault.

Party Scene: Being that the campus in located in downtown Austin the party scene is excellent. There are bars around the campus where a lot of college students go to during the week such as Crown and Anchor or Cain and Abel's. 6th street is very popular among students as well. UT fraternities also have parties which take place throughout west campus, Round Up is an especially popular Greek party weekend. I think the party scene can have a positive effect on students because you get to meet a lot of people.

Scholarships: Getting ahold of the financial aid office can be difficult at times, but they are very helpful at explaining your financial aid package.

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!
