The University of Texas At Austin has a beautiful campus. I noticed that the students there have a great sense of Texas pride that is derived from school spirit. Many of the students there are actively in sports, activities, clubs, and/or greek life. They were very friendly.

The University of Texas at Austin is an amazing school. There are so many different groups, you will definitely find a place to belong, that you feel welcome in. My professors were great my first semester and there are so many office hour opportunities for you to take advantage of if you do not fully understand the coursework. I had an amazing first semester and I can not wait to go back! UT is filled with amazing, genuine people from the faculty members to the students. Also, there are an abundance of resources and UT is really big on sending their students abroad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a freshman student at The University of Texas at Austin and so far I have had a pretty great experience. There are so many activities and facilities that I have yet to discover or use because there is just so much to do. My academic experience this far has shown me that UT is very rigorous and holds high expectations from its students. There is great college culture around sports and can bring everyone together. Those who are enrolled and alumni that I have met also have had a great experience. It is a very large campus so if you do not want to be in such a big environment than UT wouldn't be good for you. If you go to UT you will be using the Metro which is free with your UT ID and is very beneficial. UT is so big I still have a lot to discover.

Although The University of Texas at Austin isn't always perfect, I believe it is a great place to receive your education. Even if you have different opinions than other people, everybody stays respectful of your beliefs. There are always fun events going on and plenty of organizations to join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Austin is a prestigious university that rightfully prides itself for its ambition to further diversity, acceptance, and comply with new norms for political correctness. It is well-rounded and has an excellent staff of professors, most of which whom truly are invested in the growth and education of the students (from my experience). The cost of tuition and housing reflect Austin's rather pricey standard of living, but investments in both are sure to be returned in full from your experiences and resources so long as you take advantage of them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This was a big step up from UT Arlington, from where I transferred. UT Austin actually had a culture, school pride, and strong sense of community. Academically, things were solid, but my capstone class for Advertising was what paved the way for me to go to grad school. Participating in a National Student Advertising Contest with Coca-Cola as a client was a dream come true. It was those kinds of opportunities for which I am grateful. While class sizes are rather large, sitting in the front row, asking questions, and attending office hours easily makes you stand out and helps you develop a relationship with professors. I was particularly fond of Maria Rivera and John Murphy, both of whom wrote recommendation letters for me. There were plenty of extra curricular activities. As for me, I joined Texas Latin Dance and found a little family there. These are people I still keep in touch with today. I also was thankful for the faith-based organizations on campus. In fact, I came to know Jesus thanks to Campus Ministry. So not only did I grow academically, I grew spiritually. That being said, UT is whatever you'd like it to be. If you want a party school, you can find it here. If you're looking to buckle down on academics, they'll teach you. If you're looking to pledge to a Greek organization, there's a group for every letter of the alphabet. What makes us truly unique is the city itself. There's no place like Austin.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas provides a community within Austin, considering the city can be overwhelming. However, the University of Texas does a great job to integrate each student into the campus with ease. It's no question that the University of Texas is a wonderful campus to broaden students horizon with its exceptional facilities and faculty. Overall, UT is the place for students to receive an outstanding education for a reasonable price, honestly a true gem within Texas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UT at Austin has an outstanding amount of diversity and acceptance for all cultures, races, genders, etc. There is an organization that just about fits everyone's beliefs, needs, or wants. There are constantly student leaders lined up down campus reaching out to other students to get involved in the university's diverse and vast variety of organizations to choose from. I love how this creates an atmosphere of feeling like you are wanted and will fit in. Students are not afraid to protest and speak up against what they want, and UT is totally accepting of that. They believe that us students deserve the freedom of speech to express our opinions, even on campus grounds. Although this can create a tense atmosphere at times, I appreciate how UT empowers us to fight for what we believe is right. UT Austin is rated the number one public school in Texas and it definitely shows in the difficulty and challenge of our classes. There is no such thing as a "blow-off" class here at UT. All the professors I have encountered have excellent knowledge in their field, and most are extremely enthusiastic to share their passion and knowledge to students. The one thing that UT lacks in is the unlimited meal plan for students. It is a year long meal plan and there are only two dining halls to chose from, so the food often gets repetitive after a while. Additionally, the housing for students who wish to live within walking distance to campus are quite pricey for students who are already paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to get an education at UT. I think they should provide more close-by off-campus housing options for students with a budget.
