University of Texas - Austin Reviews
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.
This university is one of the best in the nation. The facilities are high quality, the professors and engaging and experts in their field, organizations are plentiful and active, the school newspaper is well-informed, and so many courses are offered. The campus is beautiful, and while it's a big school, it feels small and connected. Our sports teams are great (the football stadium is incredible), the city is amazing, and the university is over-all fantastic. Highly recommend!
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.
