University of Texas - Austin Reviews
The University of Texas at Austin is the third college I have attended in my college career, and it has by far been the best experience. It has been nothing short of what I have dreamed of growing up. The academics are truly above par and is a great school for anyone considering research at the undergraduate or graduate level. I have enjoyed all of my classes and the professors here, they have been very engaging and insightful. The school also has hundreds of ways to get involved, whether it's greek life, a club, or organization, UT has something for everyone to find a community. The school has a great social atmosphere because you're right in the heart of Austin, so there is plenty to do on the weekends, from UT sporting events, concerts, Zilker Park, malls, 6th street, and so many other fun activities! I would highly recommend anyone considering this University, it truly has been a privilege to attend school here.
I have loved being at UT Austin. It provides lots of people with lots of opportunities. There are experiences at this school that are hard to match elsewhere. There are all kinds of things that you can experience in Austin that is hard to get all wrapped into one city. Living at UT for one year and off campus the next provides me with a good understanding, I think, of what campus life is like. It's right next to Guadalupe St., which has all kinds of restaurants (Chipotle, Whataburger, Don's) At UT, you never have to search far for food. And the people you meet along the way! Almost everyone finds their place at UT because there are so many different people that you get to meet and hang out with. If I was to change anything about UT, I would make it cheaper of course. I would also make the classes a lot easier than they are. Overall, though, I would say that UT is an amazing university to be at.
I love being a student at the University of Texas. It is one of the most renowned public education institutions in the world, and has plenty of activities to be involved in outside of academia. There are countless clubs and organizations on campus, and the surrounding city of Austin is one the best places in the country. However, be warned: it may not be for everyone. With around 50,000+ students, the size can be intimidating to some. I personally enjoy the incredible amount of people I can meet and study with, and the size gives me a nice perspective. There is always something going on on campus; whether it's a basketball game, club fair, jam session, food stand, party - you name it - there is always something close to keep you occupied. Being a musician, living in Ausin and attending UT is the best college experience I could've asked for. Come to UT. Hook 'em Horns!
