I really like UT Austin and I'm really glad I chose to go here for college. It's a great campus with a lot of opportunities for the career I want to pursue. The academics here is great and I feel that I'm challenging myself here, which is good. The social life here is great as well and I've made a couple of close friends so far, and I've got the opportunity to join a few organizations on campus. The scenery of the campus is amazing as well and the nature at UT Austin is very calming. Overall, this is a great campus and I'm proud to go here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UT can be very intimidating and overwhelming at first, and at times you can feel out of place or as if you don't belong there. However, the resources and connections that you get from attending UT are unmatched in my opinion. There is a great level of diversity on campus which I love to see. As someone from a small town, I've been able to meet so many people from different walks of life that I would not get to otherwise.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is nothing I am more proud of than being a Longhorn. The amount of activities, friendships, connections, and opportunities are endless. Aside from having excellent facilities and staff, the school spirit is unbeatable. The roar from the crowd during football games at Darrel K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium can be heard from a distance. The chaos during election month on the Speedway inside campus is amazing. The bell from the tower is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are to attend this wonderful university and gives students a sense of belonging and pride. Without a doubt, UT Austin is everything and more than I expected.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas is, without a doubt, one of my favorite places in the world. The ambiance, activities, and people make the school incredible, and the academics are, without a doubt, amazing as well. The school, being as huge as it is, presents the most diverse community that I have been able to be a part of, and I am a born and raised Austinite, so I know what the idea of a big diverse city looks like. UT has something else that mainly sticks out to me. Even though we are smack dab in the middle of downtown Austin, it does not feel that way. Being at UT makes me feel as though I am in a bubble, separated from the rest of the world. That is not inherently a bad thing however. The school provides everything that one could need, and the campus functions almost as though it is a small town. People are well educated, intelligent, and driven. The amount of organizations and clubs are incredible, and there is not a chance that a person would not be able to find their niche at UT. This concept of living in a bubble makes it so that you are 110% integrated with what is going on at the university, it becomes a part of you and gives a good reason as to why longhorns have so much school pride. However there is the concern that many students at UT constantly discuss. UT statistically more wealthy that 102 nations and holds the second largest endowment in the nation. Yet they are fairly expensive for a public institution. The university to be able to recognize that they are not cheap, and that many students, myself included, work very hard to be able to afford to have an excellent education. They have the have the means of becoming more affordable, or even providing more scholarship or grant opportunities. But that is the case for most colleges in the United States, and at the end of the day, I take what I am give and see the bright side of things: that I get to go to what is considered a "public ivy" university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Austin houses a variety of resources for every group. Whether you are interested in joining social or professional organizations, conducting research, or getting involved in the community, UT Austin has something to support your interests. The students' passions are always placed first and supported by the university. Our professors challenge the students to take an active role in their own learning, but there are many supplemental resources to provide assistance when necessary.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that the University of Texas at Austin is a great school. The social atmosphere is great and we have a lot of spectacular courses and lecturers. One issue however is that it is very hard to get into certain classes when you are not a science major. Even if you are a science major the class availability is very limited. Despite that UT is a great school and it is not hard at all to find your place here if you are willing to get to know people and get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was a visitor at The University of Texas at Austin earlier this year for an audition to their music department. I was not impressed with the campus. The buildings were very brown and square with only minimal foliage and greenery. There was a new building being built, but if you looked at the plans it was another big brown building. The area was pretty nice, as is it really close to Austin proper, but the traffic getting in and out of the city was awful. The campus was also hard to navigate, and the maps were not labeled. The audition that I went to was not especially organized and the student helpers were not very helpful.
