College Express lists UT as having the 7th largest library system in the US. Not sure why A&M is ranked higher than us on this site, when they are listed number 46 on this list.

I went to high school in College Station, and trust me, Austin is a breath of fresh air in this department. So many food places, so many ethnicity, so many coffee shops. I could go on and on and on.

There is food everywhere! If you want it you can have it! everything is within walking distance.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T05:06:36Z
pretty good housing all really close to campus but expensive.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T05:05:57Z
Hot all the time. we didn't really get a winter but the heat is not unbearable.

Guys & Girls:
People are definitely different here than any other part of Texas. you will find a wide verity of people. The guys are nerdy even if they are in a frat and every girl is practically in a sorority,

There are many garages but the price for them is too high. Without a permit you will have to park where the parking meters are or on west campus but those are usually packed. I recommend using UT buses.

Horrible! Humid, hot then cold!! JUST AWFUL!! but thats texas

Parking is an extreme hassle and you will get towed if you leave your car for more than 3 minutes unattended without a permit.

There is a free University Shuttle that transports students around campus between classes. There is also a Shuttle that goes from apartment complexes in the surrounding areas and brings students to the University. The city buses are also free to students.

Permit costs are very expensive, and driving a car around campus during the week is extremely difficult anyways because there are so many students. Cars are often towed/ticketed. You don't need a car to get around campus. Not worth it. If anything, get a bike or a long board.

The weather is usually pleasant until about mid March. Outdoor studying, lots of fresh air, and plenty of sunlight lead to a pleasant campus experience.
College Senior 2013-01-28T00:38:58Z
Campus parking is really limited, and unless you get a more expensive garage spot you aren't guaranteed anything
College Senior 2013-01-28T00:28:55Z
Really good sports over all at UT. The volleyball team and golf team won the national championship in their latest seasons
College Junior 2013-01-27T23:50:56Z
It's pretty average, no one really has a problem, unless you're an idiot about doing illegal things and advertise everything.
College Junior 2013-01-27T21:37:46Z
Texas weather is always decent. The only bad part is the heat but its doesn't ever get that bad
College Junior 2013-01-27T21:33:46Z
Athletics at UT are pretty huge. they have nice facilities and there is tons of school spirit and fan support
College Junior 2013-01-27T21:29:13Z
There are plenty of places to eat around campus. The university dining halls have decent food but it is easy to get tired of it and it is overpriced. pverall though its pretty good
College Junior 2013-01-27T17:10:45Z
There's not much strictness in the overall campus life. Maybe within each college it might differ, but overall everything is pretty subtle and calm.
College Junior 2013-01-24T22:37:03Z
I get tired of the Wendy's in Jester, but it is very convenient than going out
College Junior 2013-01-24T03:31:46Z
I live across the street from campus, so don't rely much on the transportation; however, my apartment will be considerably farther next year and in the process of looking up routes, I was mildly impressed. There are a decent number of routes extending quite a ways from campus that come rather commonly.

I'm an engineering major, and although it's a lot of work, it's very rewarding. There are introductory classes specific to your major so you can get hands-on experience your freshman year, and there is a very helpful engineering career center to help you look for externships, internships and jobs.
College Sophomore 2013-01-22T03:15:34Z
There are countless places to study around campus, and if you need help, there is always someone available. Professors and their TA's hold multiple office hours a week to fit into your schedule, and study tables in Jester and Kinsolving dorms are open on weekdays. You can go to the study tables to find peers, talk to TA's and get questions answered by people taking the same classes as you. Although UT has a reletively higher workload, the professors make it interesting and worthwile, and I could not have asked for a better university.

Not all that many scholarship opportunities and most are entirely too competitive. I love UT, but the financial aid here is whack. They tried to give me less than I deserved so I did a formal appeal and they found me more grants and less loans. Overall, they'll find you enough to make sure you're able to attend, it's just that most of it will be loans if you're not in financial need.
College Junior 2013-01-22T02:24:58Z
UT has a broad spectrum of majors it offers. You can major in engineering, journalism, social work, women's studies, linguistics, advertising, accounting, acting, etc. There are over 100 possibilities for degrees. Many majors are highly competitive and hard to get into, though. The business school, college of communication, engineering, architecture, and some fine arts majors are fairly difficult to get into, just to name a few.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
