Most of the food is delicious, although I'm not sure about the nutritional value and how healthy the ingredients are. This information is also not posted for easy access. Having a meal plan is really convenient when the cafeteria is close to or in your dorm.

Guys & Girls:
Some people are not as friendly as I would hope, but there are still common holding the door open and occasional smiles between strangers.

It's really hot most of the time. When it's not hot it's really cold. It rarely rains. You'll probably sweat on the way to and on the way back from class, but it becomes pretty normal. It's just hot.

If you want to go anywhere in downtown, you almost have to get a taxi or park on campus. Otherwise you have to pay a lot for parking.
College Sophomore 2013-09-29T23:28:59Z
I haven't lived on campus but I stayed in the dorms for orientation. They seem pretty average. They've been around a long time so they could use some renovation but overall they are holding up fine it seems

Look, it's a dining hall. If you're expecting something gourmet, you're going to be disappointed, but for what they are, they really try hard. They have tons of options and a different sort of theme every day with some regular menu items (all posted online a few days in advance) that keeps you from getting bored, and they have some things that are really good. Once a month or so they will have a theme day where they go all out and decorate for a certain theme and have dishes that are authentic and quite good. This year, Kinsolving (the north dining hall) started a new thing on Saturdays where they have higher quality at the expense of variety, which is fun and different, and it allows us access to pretty good food all for the same price of like 5 fake dollars... And if you don't like it, there are plenty of off-campus options.

Texas football is a religion. There is no other way to put it. Saturdays in the fall, campus is transformed. If you step outside, you may note that about 90% of people there are wearing orange, and football games regularly attend 100,000 people. A bad year is when we aren't the Big 12 champions. The OU game in Dallas every year is one of the most looked forward to events of the year. Sports besides football also have some following, but football is really our big thing.

Greek life is fairly involved, but is not mandatory by any means. Some greeks and non-greeks hold views about the others, but most people generally don't care whether you are in Greek life. They are known for throwing lots of pretty wild parties, but they also do a fair amount of philanthropy, but that generally gets less press though.
College Junior 2013-09-29T01:45:56Z
There are tons of classes offered that cover practically every topic. Registration can be tough for some more popular classes, especially at good times. Generally the classes are really interesting and the professors are always incredibly knowledgeable.
College Sophomore 2013-09-29T01:45:31Z
We are fairly diverse as a school, but in the honors science sphere of existence, there are lots of white people and Asians, with a sizable Hispanic minority, but besides that, there isn't much in the way of diversity. But as a whole school, we do pretty well on that end.
College Junior 2013-09-29T01:43:55Z
There are tons of things to do and tons of people to do it with. Whether you want to stay in or go out partying, chances are there is someone who wants to do the same thing as you.

Aerospace engineering is a very difficult major and only for those who are willing to do the work required to do well in it. The first few semester with general engineering class are not fun because the professors do no care as much about the classes. As you get into more specific classes the professors become better and the classes more interesting.

We have the UT bus system, which goes to popular off-campus housing areas as well as the campus shuttle, but we can also use all Austin city buses for free, including the express routes that usually cost more. Campus is pretty far from the airport, but there is a bus that goes there that we can use for free. There is also a Megabus stop right off campus if you want to go to select other cities in Texas, and campus is not too far from the Greyhound and Amtrak stations.

I am a chemistry major. I think most people are required to take introductory chemistry, so those classes tend to be very large, but past that, we have one of the best chemistry departments in the country, with very knowledgeable professors doing all sorts of research. We also have the Freshman Research Initiative program, which allows undergrads to start doing real scientific research in a supportive and educational environment their freshman year, which is a great program.

I like hot weather, and there is no shortage of that in Austin. Really besides August and early September, the weather is mostly pretty mild during the school year, but in Austin, that often means that it's pretty humid, which isn't so pleasant. But every once in a while you'll get an 85 degree day in January, and then you'll remember why you love it so much in Texas.
College Sophomore 2013-09-29T01:10:30Z
There is constantly something new being built, which means that there are always modern study spaces and such things. There is no lack of places to study, and if you do enough investigating, you'll be able to find somewhere that is nearly empty. As for other facilities, the labs have a lot to offer, notably even for undergrads, and there are all sorts of outdoor areas.
College Sophomore 2013-09-24T02:42:13Z
The dining menus at UT are pretty average, the cost isnt that bad either. It gets tiresome eating practically the same thing every day so its nice to go out to eat every once in a while.
College Sophomore 2013-09-24T02:38:56Z
There are many stops on campus and off campus to student living apartments. It is really convenient and very easy to get the hang of the routes and times.
College Sophomore 2013-09-24T02:34:17Z
I've lived in Texas my whole life and during the Fall semester it is super hot. The temperature really takes a toll on you, especially the long distances between classes.
College Sophomore 2013-09-24T02:27:56Z
I feel that UT is a great school full of friendly people. I feel like I belong here and Austin is a very different and upbeat place to live.
College Sophomore 2013-09-21T02:25:48Z
There are so many different races at my school. Because of this, there are also many different organizations one can join.
College Sophomore 2013-09-21T02:20:41Z
financial aid was really easy. if i had questions, their office was on campus and was able to answer to all my needs.
College Junior 2013-09-16T22:12:46Z
The transportation is fairly good. There are number of buses including the West Campus bus, the main campus bus, etc. and you are likely to find a way to class using the universities' transportation. It generally isn't always needed as many walk to class.
College Junior 2013-09-16T22:11:25Z
Parking on campus can get pretty bad, depending on where you're trying to park at. Most people walk or ride their bike to class unless you live outside the main campus area. I've never had to drive to class so I've had no trouble, however in terms of parking elsewhere, it can be tough sometimes.
College Junior 2013-09-16T22:08:46Z
A large variety of restaurants from fast food, sit-down, and a number of others. West Campus and MLK offer a number of options for dining. Lamar and Guadalupe have countless options of off-campus dining and there is something for everyone and whatever you're hungry for. There are many restaurants within walking distance if driving is not an option as well.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
