Local Area: There are tons of things to do and tons of people to do it with. Whether you want to stay in or go out partying, chances are there is someone who wants to do the same thing as you.

Academics: Aerospace engineering is a very difficult major and only for those who are willing to do the work required to do well in it. The first few semester with general engineering class are not fun because the professors do no care as much about the classes. As you get into more specific classes the professors become better and the classes more interesting.

Transportation: We have the UT bus system, which goes to popular off-campus housing areas as well as the campus shuttle, but we can also use all Austin city buses for free, including the express routes that usually cost more. Campus is pretty far from the airport, but there is a bus that goes there that we can use for free. There is also a Megabus stop right off campus if you want to go to select other cities in Texas, and campus is not too far from the Greyhound and Amtrak stations.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a chemistry major. I think most people are required to take introductory chemistry, so those classes tend to be very large, but past that, we have one of the best chemistry departments in the country, with very knowledgeable professors doing all sorts of research. We also have the Freshman Research Initiative program, which allows undergrads to start doing real scientific research in a supportive and educational environment their freshman year, which is a great program.

Weather: I like hot weather, and there is no shortage of that in Austin. Really besides August and early September, the weather is mostly pretty mild during the school year, but in Austin, that often means that it's pretty humid, which isn't so pleasant. But every once in a while you'll get an 85 degree day in January, and then you'll remember why you love it so much in Texas.

Campus Quality: There is constantly something new being built, which means that there are always modern study spaces and such things. There is no lack of places to study, and if you do enough investigating, you'll be able to find somewhere that is nearly empty. As for other facilities, the labs have a lot to offer, notably even for undergrads, and there are all sorts of outdoor areas.

Campus Food: The dining menus at UT are pretty average, the cost isnt that bad either. It gets tiresome eating practically the same thing every day so its nice to go out to eat every once in a while.

Transportation: There are many stops on campus and off campus to student living apartments. It is really convenient and very easy to get the hang of the routes and times.

Weather: I've lived in Texas my whole life and during the Fall semester it is super hot. The temperature really takes a toll on you, especially the long distances between classes.

Transportation: The transportation is fairly good. There are number of buses including the West Campus bus, the main campus bus, etc. and you are likely to find a way to class using the universities' transportation. It generally isn't always needed as many walk to class.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus can get pretty bad, depending on where you're trying to park at. Most people walk or ride their bike to class unless you live outside the main campus area. I've never had to drive to class so I've had no trouble, however in terms of parking elsewhere, it can be tough sometimes.

Off-Campus Dining: A large variety of restaurants from fast food, sit-down, and a number of others. West Campus and MLK offer a number of options for dining. Lamar and Guadalupe have countless options of off-campus dining and there is something for everyone and whatever you're hungry for. There are many restaurants within walking distance if driving is not an option as well.

Local Area: Austin has everything from hole-in-the-wall joints to chain restaurants and companies, all within a reasonable distance. From 1st Street to 51st Street, there is a wide variety of places to get food, shop, or pick up necessities for the week. On top of that, most of these are located extremely close to campus, within walking distance, making it extremely convenient for those of us who don't have cars. The food trucks are exceptional and definitely something one has to experience when coming to Austin for the first time, especially Bananarchy.

Guys & Girls: Our campus has every single type of stereotyped guy and girl, plus the ones that don't fit in with the stereotype. Sure, some of them are slightly odd, but they are given the opportunity to express themselves (in a manner that is not distracting). The guys for the most part are extremely attractive and have strong will-power, and the girls are modest and all beautiful in their own way! Southern hospitality is also a commonality among the guys here, and that is much appreciated.

Academics: The College of Education, ranked number one in the nation among public schools, provides a great learning experience for its students. I'm an Athletic Training major, and the program for Athletic Training majors is fantastic. They give us plenty of hands on activities, and provide us with the connections we will need to get a solid job after we graduate. The professors are phenomenal, and truly know what they're talking about, and value getting to know their students better and helping them succeed.

Academics: The University of Texas has an outstanding academic program. The College of Education, the college that my major is a part of, is ranked #1 in the nation among public schools, and all of the other colleges are highly esteemed and prestigious. I feel like the experience I have in the classroom is very relatable, and the professors keep us very engaged. I have 3 larger classes of 100+, but we still get involved with our classmates. The professors truly want us to do our best, and they provide us all of the opportunities necessary to succeed in their classes.

Majors: There are tons of opportunities at your feet in all majors.

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.

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!
