In one sentence:there.is.something.for.everyone! UT Austin is simply the best in making a large school feeling immediately smaller by the countless communities you can jump right into. From political to adventurous student organizations, to meeting the very brightest professors and students in your chosen field, you will never cease to be amazed by the unlimited amount of opportunities available to you. For instance, I am a double major in Government and International Relations and Global Studies and am continuously amazed at the amount of programs, events, lectures , courses, and books available just for students in those majors. Your college's department of Career Services will blow you away as well, they will provide any and all resources to ensure your success after graduation. Most of all, UT is a highly respected university in the state of Texas and beyond, a degree from UT will go a very long way! I highly recommend studying here.

As a Latino student from Dallas, I was not expecting such a significant change going to UT. I experienced a shock from all fronts and I felt like it was one of the best decisions in my life. The cultural diversity is so vast that I can make friends from different backgrounds, different ethnicity, and even different countries! The academic intensity is one that made me rethink my entire approach to my classes and helped me think about how I manage with various obstacles that I will face in life. I experienced legitimate failure after failing calculus in my first semester and learning from such failure helped me realize that I must change my entire view of myself and how to pick myself up from any adversity. The student life is so immersive and interactive for those who look for it. I decided to join a Latin dance organization and I felt welcome and found myself by finding Texas Latin Dance. UT was such an awakening experience that I look forward to in the next three years.
My freshman year was amazing. I lived on campus in the San Jacinto dorm which was an amazing dorm. The food options on campus are pretty good and there are so many places on campus you can go to eat at and study. Diversity at UT is pretty low and there is definitely a safety issue on campus. Being that campus is in the middle of downtown Austin you get lots of awesome local culture and things to do however there is also a big safety drawback. The line where campus ends and downtown begins can be hard to see and there are lots of homeless people non-college students roaming campus late at night. Overall the community is great and there are so many ways to get connected and make friends through Facebook groups, orgs, greek life, and spirit groups. All and all its a great university and I truely love it there!
