Overall Experience: As a graduate student coming from a liberal arts small college this is a different experience. Austin makes me feel at home and comfortable.

Health & Safety: Several times I have been harassed by homeless people on campus and no one has come to stop them from bugging people despite all the calls to the campus department. However, they are helpful in other situations.

Campus Housing: I live off campus, so I do not know about on campus living.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life at this school is awful. They believe they are better than everyone else and they do nothing to deserve this thought. They throw wild parties, stay out really late, skip class and when they do show up to class, they do not pay attention and are loud enough to distract those who wish to pay attention.

Athletics: Our football games are the best part of the fall semester. Everyone attends the games each weekend and we support all of our athletes. Basketball gets huge amounts of support within the stands. The stands may be packed with burnt orange faces, shirts, towels and so much more. Our longhorn family is there for each and everyone else on this campus. No one is left behind.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is open to so many new opportunities and allows for students to branch out and find their own niche within society. I believe that this is extremely important when it comes to students finding their true selves. We are not locked within certain society standards when it comes to the University of Texas at Austin campus. If it weren't for going to my school, I would not be the person I am today. It has shaped me into the strong independent person I am.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everything you could possibly ask for is here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UT Austin provides all of the resources that a student needs to succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: UT has a lot of resources dedicated to student safety.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors are usually genuinely interested in helping you do well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career center does a lot to help you get the career you want.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like my school because there is very much an engineering community, and an undergraduate community, feeling here.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many homeless people on the street such as the drag. It is always safer to walk on campus back to the dorms than to walk on the drag back. Sometimes I think it is still a bit scary to walk alone on campus, so it is better to walk with a friend or ask the organization called SURE Walk to send people to walk with you back to your room.

Overall Experience: I have met some professors who are really down to earth and want to help students in any way they can. I have had mostly great experiences with all my classes except one or two. There are some classes that are huge with 400+ people in it and there are some that only have 20 people in it. I personally like smaller classes because you get to know the people in there better and get to talk to the professors more.

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!
