I work in athletics, Its a tedious job but I love it more than anything. It helps pay for my education, and is also a fun thing to be apart of!

The School of Communications is not a hard subject to be in, however, it is extremely hard to get into. Students fight tooth and nail to get into the limited spots available, and sometime they still do not get in. When I first applied I thought I wanted to major in Radio-Television-Film, having a very strong background in the subject and a large portfolio, I thought I was a shoe-in. However I was declined to the Com school when other with no experience were accepted. Very frustrating but I just continued on. I took classes required for the subject, and applied the following year, in which, I was accepted. I just could not take no for an answer.

Campus Dining is terrible. There are only a couple of places to eat on campus and it is all way too expensive. Also, everything but Wendy's closes well before sundown. On the upside, the Drag, which runs along one side of the school, is full of lots of great places to eat and you get a discount as some of them for being a UT student.

Smoking on campus is ridiculous because there are certain places where you can smoke but if you have to walk by there, you will die of the smoke. I haven't really seen any drugs on campus, but according to the school's statistics, 31% claim to do drugs...so yeah. Drinking of course is the biggest problem especially since 6th street is so close, and even if you don't go to 6th street, there are lots of parties at the dozens of frats and sororities across West Campus, so there is a lot of drinking here, though it depends on who your friends are.

The athletics at UT are wonderful! The girls volleyball just won the national championship, and the UT football team won the Alamo Bowl. All the sports teams are great here. Speaking of UT Football, a game is a MUST! Seeing 50,000+ people cheering and singing and standing for hours all wearing Burnt Orange is so amazing and regret not having gone my first year at UT! Plus, IM sports are huge and there are A, B, and C teams so you will find people playing at no matter how good you are in that sport.

All the buildings are old and beautiful on the outside, but the inside depends on what kind it is. The buildings for the sciences are more modern since they have more money, but while the Liberal Arts buildings are older, you get more freedom to actually use things. Overall, everything is beautiful, and you can be in a building that is over 100 years old and not tell the difference between it and a building built a couple years ago because they are so well taken care of. The Classics building has a beautiful study lounge and there are 17 libraries on campus so plenty of places to study or just hang out. Also, with over 1100 clubs and organizations, there is no shortage of finding other people interested in whatever it is you are interested in!

Great football, just enough traditions, a beautiful campus, and anything that can be desired commercially. It is an urban campus which opens numerous opportunities for fun activities across the city since everything is so close. You can choose to engage in the many clubs or deviate from the college scene with all the bars, restaurants, and shops that are within walking distance of the campus.

Health & Safety:
The school is very safe and sends out safety alerts
College Junior 2012-12-31T22:57:22Z
Good, fun things nearby; but hassle if no vehicle.

There are many places to eat on campus. The Wendy's at Jester is open until 4 am for anybody who is up late studying. There are two buffets, one in Kinsolving and on in Jester, which is being renovated. The food in the buffets is not bad, especially for the value. If you have the meal plan, you can use dine in dollars at the buffets and it'll be cheaper.

Minorities make up a good percentage of the student body. There are many different student organizations for different races and religions. Also, there is a church close to campus that is for many different denominations.

The cost of for a parking pass is $700 and finding parking is hard. Parking in a spot that you weren't supposed to can earn you a $75 ticket.

Most students tend to live in West Campus their first year living off campus at UT. I can't really speak for North Campus or Riverside, because I have never lived there--but the reason West Campus is chosen most of the time is because of the proximity to the UT campus. In West Campus, availability dwindles as the year goes on, so students must search for housing early--December to January. The cons are prices are so high compared to areas in North Campus and Riverside. Another con is how loud it gets in West Campus because all of the frat houses and sorority houses are there. Thursday ~ Sunday nights, expect lots of noise.

The process to get into my Advertising wasn't as rigorous as others programs at UT. All I did was turn in my application for the college and I was taken into consideration for the program right away.

Not as good as what I expected for the 12th ranked art school. Look around in my opinion.
College Senior 2012-12-31T15:17:46Z
I stressed out more than I needed to about getting into the Fine Arts Department at UT. They accept a lot of people and have a lot of resources to answer your questions about applying.
College Senior 2012-12-31T07:52:01Z
The facilities at my school campus is very beautiful and huge with the famous UT clock tower which rings every 15 minutes and makes, not annoying, but non-irritable sound. Each building at my campus is very unique in its own way, ranging from older antique designs to more modern and sleek designs.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T22:38:05Z
I am very satisfied with the UT civil engineering program. There are excellent professors, advisors, mentors, organizations, and job search help. They really want us to excel! The more work you put into searching for help the more you get out of the program.

I hate the cold so central Austin is ideal. It does get hot but there is a lot of shade when walking from class to class and AC is always on. it rains occasionally and to cold is manageable. Weather is great, does not disturb the university and provided for many summer/spring weather outdoor activities.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T22:31:08Z
I was admitted into UT Austin as a Civil Engineering major. It is possible to transfer in once admitted to the university and/ or the Cockrell School of Engineering. To be enrolled in calculus and chemistry classes you must pass ALEKs test before classes start. As an engineering major you will learn to problem solve but it also takes a lot of your own initiative; you have many resources at UT but you have to go and work to excel.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T18:26:07Z
I came to UT Austin for it's engineering reputation and thus far I have been thoroughly satisfied. The professors, facilities, and students have been fantastic so far. I have no regrets of coming to this school. Although, the academics are very difficult. Students must study hard in order to do well.

Buses are accessible and have many stops but I usually only take them when I have planned ahead, because when I really need them to get to class when I am running late, they are never at the closest stop so I end up running.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T18:21:30Z
I am a part of Cockrell School of Engineering and I have been very satisfied with the education thus far. The professors are somewhat old fashioned but know the material they are teaching very well. The workload can be overwhelming but the students in my classes are easy to get along with and to do group work with. The facilities such as the machine shop are easily accessible after obtaining the proper license and there are always other students and faculty willing to help.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T16:21:32Z
I think we have alot of options and a large selection that should be able to satisfy even the pickiest eaters.

Guys & Girls:
SOOOOOOOO many fraternity & sorority members. I would say the population is generally attractive. We have all types, rockers, preps, etc.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
