the school is great for socializing and meeting new friends, but some students are rather timid when it comes to talking
College Sophomore 2012-04-07T03:43:45Z
there is a variety of different organizations that students can be a part of that in no way render them from being accepted by any groups.

Keep Austin Weird! As I mentioned Austin is known for its weird atmosphere so here on campus diversity is widely accepted. Everyone is usually pretty friendly and there is a lot of people on campus so many are just trying to make many new friends. Everyone has there own beliefs, background, status, and etc. but people are hardly judged because of that. Here at the University of Texas, we all keep an open mind and accept people for who they are.

So Many Places to Much Out in! There are so many places to go to off campus that are very close by. Many of them are walking distant and some even accept "Bevo Bucks" which are like student discounts. There are many more places to check out deeper into downtown which a bus can take you in if you lack trasportation. And there are restaurants open super late at night when most places are are already closed like Kerbey Lane which is super delicious.

Fun, Crazy, and Awesome! The city of Austin is the place you want to be in if you plan to have an amazing experience. When they say "keep Austin weird" they are not kidding about that. Austin is definitely weird but very amusing. Plus, the capital is right down town so thats always a great place to visit. The street to party in if you do not already know is 6th Street so I encourage you to come out and visit the city and you will not regret it!

Multiple libraries, some focused on a certain field of study. Many student centers and the gyms are immense and well equipped.

Downtown Austin – The campus is located in the middle of downtown Austin which always has something going on. You can never be bored because there is always the chance to do something.

Guys & Girls:
UT Guys and Girls – UT students are an interesting mix of fun, smart, and unique! Like most schools, we have people who like to either study or party all day. However, at UT we have a large number who know how to do both!

UT Faciliites – The campus at UT Austin is a sprawling 40 acres. The inside of the buildings are similar to other colleges, but the architecture of many buildings has an old Spanish flair that adds to the experience of walking around campus. And there is green space on campus for playing soccer and laying out in the sun to study.

Weather is usually sunny and does not get in the way of everyday life.

Guys & Girls:
Not What You Expect. Around campus, you see many frat boys/sorority girls. Frats are where the ugly boys go to get friends and sororities are where pretty girls with attitudes go to get friends.

UT Austin has the hardest science courses in Texas. Freshman year is particularly difficult because it is a "weed out" year.

Bus Is Convenient – Bus is free to students. Lots of traffic when driving.
College Senior 2012-04-02T19:26:52Z
Tons of Food. There are tons of fast food places around campus to eat, as well as many restaurants. Also, many chain restaurants are easy to get to on the bus.

Health & Safety:
City Crime Is Typical – The University is in the middle of downtown, so crime is expected. Campus police do their best to keep students well informed and up to date about crime around campus. The most common crime is stolen bikes.

The financial aid process is somewhat not convenient at UT. It is an expensive school and not much aid or grants are given out to students by the university itself. Tips would be to seek outside scholarships not affiliated with UT Austin.

UT has a wide range of athletics, and for those not involved in the sports teams, there are many intramural sports that you can join. There is everything including 8 enormous athletic facilities throughout campus.

parking can be expensive, and by the time you've found a spot...you're late for class.

Drugs Aren't Seen as Much as Drinking Is – Though a lot of drugs are found almost daily, drinking is a more popular bad habit.

Greek Students – On normal days, people involved in the Greek life can only be pointed out by their shirts labeled with the Greek letters, on weekends, they are pointed out by how drunk they are.
