Sports Are Everywhere – In UT, sports are everywhere. Guys love to go to gym and work out. Besides, our school offer indoor swimming pool, tennis and volleyball. All those rooms are filled with students. Girls like to go to gym to take exercise classes.

Guys & Girls:
They Play Hard and Work Hard – Both guys and girls in our school love to talk about about sports like a football game held yesterday. They all love to wear t-shirt with shirt pants. They go to club sometimes during the weekends but they are hard-working during weekdays.

I don't really rely on the buses, walking is always an option. Buses I've heard are very crowded and can be unpredictable.

Guys & Girls:
Pretty Attractive – This is a very attractive school, most are in sororities and fraternities though.

More Freedom – Freedom is about the only difference from on and off campus housing at UT. The further you are from the campus, the less you'll have to pay. West Campus is pretty much the closest to campus without being on campus, and can come out cheaper if you find a way to lease your apt out over the summer. If you plan on staying in Austin over the summer it becomes a better choice. It gets difficult to find apt the longer you wait and due to the high number of frats/sororities in the area it can be very loud and messy thurs-sat.

Quick and Easy – The UTeach program at UT Austin allowed for easy access to an internship. Within a few weeks I went from nothing to an easy tutoring internship at a local middle school. The internships are extremely flexible, I pretty much make my own schedule and good pay ($12/hr)

The internet service is great at UT, fast, reliable, but if you're looking for a computer at a lab you may find it difficult to find one available. Printing is another hassle, you have to first put money on your ID card, I forget the price but there are few, and ever dwindling, places to get free printing on campus. It helps to be in specific majors *cough*Physics*cough* that offer at least some printing to students.

A Hassle – I only spent 1 year in a dorm at UT and it was mixed for me. There was the convenience of being on campus, slightly easier to get food and ability to meet people. The dorms vary widely in style and comfort, being on an unrenovated floor of Jester was harsh, but livable. Best part of the dorm life was how well my floor seem to get along, that made the experience worthwile.

Offline and in Person – The way to go to get answers fast is through talking to an actual human at UT. The website is often difficult to navigate and does not clearly contain all the answers you may be seeking. The downside to speaking in person is that the phones are usually busy so there is a wait, and if you do not live in Austin during the summer it may be hard to do the call only thing. Otherwise, as far as being able to get financial aid, UT is pretty good about having programs in specific colleges that make finding aid easier, and the few bevonomics things I've been to have been helpful.

Always Something Different – There is an abundance of different foods right next to the UT campus. Most places give better and more food for the same price that the on campus cafeterias cost. Along side the sometimes frightening choices, many of which I've never seen until I got to Austin, are the familiar fast food chains with cheap, familiar food. I've been there 2 years and I am still discovering new places to eat all the time.

Ride Your Bike – The public transportation at UT is a good option and the buses are very effective, but if you want to be on your own schedule and get some exercise while your at it, you should ride your bike. The campus makes it very convenient to ride your bike since they have placed bike racks all through out campus and made the majority of campus only pedestrian or biker friendly.

New Adventure Everyday – Austin is so big, that you couldn't possibly ever see everything it has to offer. If you live in the area you can visit a new restaurant (the food in Austin is awesome!) or a new museum everyday.

Guys & Girls:
Everyone Is So Friendly – You'll find that everyone you see on campus walks by you with their head held high and a smile on their face. You can approach everyone on campus and they will answer your questions or supply you with company.

Can There Be Better School Than This? I am international student and i just realized that there can't be better university than here even though i have been to many top schools!

Awesome Places to Eat! Austin is really a place to eat i think! there are mixture of various cuisines that you can almost taste all the food in Austin, especially near the campus. I am sure that everyone can find a place where they will have the favorite food!

Housing With My Parents – I am living with my parents in apartment but the price and quality of housing is pretty good compared to other places really!

Amazing Austin – Though i am very studious and diligent student, i just can't forget that night with my parents when i passed by 6th St.! Amazing night life there! really!

Great System! We have one of the best networks here at UT. Athletics is the big revenue maker for UT Austin and the reason we are a top school. We are world recognized and even showed some of the best athletes at the Olympics in 2012. Just to say we have our very own Network the Longhorn Network from ESPN is very popular in Austin and Texas.

Health & Safety:
Troubling Times – We have had obvious signs of lacking in the security area that have been nationally acclaimed. Sorry to say that when you attend a school that size sometimes it's not possible to have surveillance all the time everywhere.When something happens you get either a text of an e-mail that tells you about the event so you can keep an eye out.

The University of Texas has amazing professors who truly care for your success.

Medical School as a Goal – This is not the best school for pre-meds, but I think so far I am surviving. I would say going to such an amazing school is worth the extra effort you have to put in to be able to shine here.

No Difficulties! I got accepted and begun my studies, no issues whatsoever!

BS Neurobiology – I love my school as well as my major, but I have to say, that there is room for improvement in how UT does my major. This is however likely to be a result of it being a rather new degree here. My major concern has been quality of some of the professors' interest in lecturing/teaching, as opposed to simply being there because they have to. Some of my professors, however, are the greatest teachers I could ever ask for. So it varies. Workload is high, but doable.

Amazing Food – There are go local cards which help you save but other than that there aren't other discounts. The cost varies depending on where you go but you can get amazing food for dirt cheap or extremely expensive. One of the reasons why I love Austin so much is its diverse option of dining and how tasty most things are.

Always Something to Do – There is so much going on that it is hard not to find something to get involved in or do. There are tons of organizations and the entire city is filled with great opportunities. My favorites are going to Barton Springs, going Kayaking, or going hiking. Lots of fresh air with beautiful scenery.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
