4 College Junior

Academics: To begin with, every study area in UT is full. That is because the workload every major gets is a heavy workload. That happens because of the demanding curriculum with classes taught by very demanding professors. The registration process is great, it's easy to understand after the first time, yet, because the student population is unbelievable you might not get into a class you have to take if you register late.

Campus Housing: I personally have not lived on campus, and that was because of how expensive it was for my budget. But if the price would have been better, I would have probably lived there since the community is fun and friendly, and because it makes life easier when having to stay up late studying and going back to your room around 3 a.m. Also, it is convenient for you to get to your classes on time. UT has a variety of options, it just depends on your budget. However, beware that the social atmosphere may be too fun and distracting, from what I've heard.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The availability is great, it's just that it is all fast food. Unless you have Bevo bucks, your options increase because then you can go in into the dining halls, otherwise forget that variety and stick to Wendy's.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Occasionally, some campus crime slips off them.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Pro= own bedroom and W.C. Con= too far & scary

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Great except watch out for parking. They will ticket you if you don't have a permit. Seriously.

Guys & Girls: Its a good looking campus y'all. Guys are sweet for the most part, a few jerks mixed in there, but overall really respectful and mature and easy to talk too.

Campus Food: On campus eating is alright, but after you move off campus, the meal plan is worthless.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: ... parking is a sad sad thing at UT

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Austin is the best city, I adore living here and I never want to leave. Most students love living here. If your looking for a great city with a great music scene, amazing food, and friendly people, Austin is for you.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Nice most of the year but unpredictable.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Nice student living, you can find ways to make it affordable, but off campus living is really common and definitely feasible for most budgets.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The party scene is there if you want it, but will stay in west campus if you don't. The best of both worlds. I always feel safe, and UTPD has a great presence on campus and will take care of any issues.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: One of the best and most popular in the country. Our campus gym is great and the athletics on campus are amazing. Even if you're not on the school team, there are a lot of intro-mural sports teams you can find anywhere.

Greek Life: I have no idea, I know nothing about the greek life on campus other than that there are a lot of people who are in a greek society, but there are also a lot of people who aren't, so you're not missing out on much. Unless you like to party.

Administration: It's pretty good, some areas such as noise, parking, and drinking they are very strict, but other than that they are pretty average on the rest. They want you to do your best in your academics and stress that very thoroughly.

Weather: The first few weeks in August were extremely hot, but it was tolerable. During the winter it does get cold, but it's not terrible at all. Overall, the weather is the same if you've lived in Texas before, and if you haven't, it's not too cold, and not too hot.

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!
