Wonderful, engaged, and passionate professors separate this school from the rest! The workload is challenging at times but encourages young people to truly dive into their studies and gain a greater understanding of the subjects they learn instead of memorizing the material short-term for tests and then losing the knowledge soon after! The resources that the university provides are bountiful and purposeful. The location of campus is in the heart of Texas and surrounded by lots to see, do, and experience. The vast majority of people are warm and caring. Efforts made on campus and off to ensure the safety and prosperity of UT's students are evident and there are good feelings all around!

As a freshman, I am currently enjoying my stay at UT Austin. Going in I was overwhelmed at the thought of attending such a large university. However, the professors are always nice and provide you with encouraging words. They always make a point to help you succeed. Additionally, there is always something happening at campus so I never feel bored. Speedway is lined with tables hosted by campus organizations, and they are always giving out free stuff! There are many great, close-by places to eat along Guadalupe such as Chipotle or Cava. Basically, UT Austin gives you so many opportunities to go out and have fun while also providing you with a great educational foundation.
The University of Texas at Austin has so much to offer to its students. There is never a dull moment on campus. Not only are students taught by world-renowned faculty, who want their students to succeed, but there are over a thousand student organizations, visits by famous world leaders, musical performances, and exciting athletic events year around. The University of Texas at Austin does a great job providing resources to fit every students' needs. No matter what your situation is there is a team of people eagerly waiting to help. The best part about the University of Texas at Austin is that its located in Austin, Texas. In Austin, you will never run out of things to do. If you have a more active lifestyle there are countless opportunities to go hiking, swimming, or rock climbing. If you like music, art, and film then head over to the 200 plus venues, museums, art galleries, and theaters located all across the city. Austin is my home away from home, and I hope it can be yours too!
